shading ascii - using the upper/lower case desig n thing / nootropic

here's a neat little tutorial that shows two things… f irst, shading an ascii. this is much different than just colouring it, or flippi ng some blocks, or what not.. i've seen many peop le attemping shading, but it's really just toon s tuff, in essence. here's how you get that shaded effect.

in addition, i am covering the upper/lower case thin g i have talked about in other tutorials. it's neat and all, so check it out. rem ember, the fate of the scene lies in your hands.

first i whipped up some neat looking holocaust-style  letters. <shrug> i had never tried it before, thought i might have a certain st yle with it. apparently i do not, and i don't plan on doing any more hO stuff :)  let the master do it.

next i made a neat upper case looking "free"… it's the  shittiest font possiblemethinks.. when doing the  upper/lower case merge, it's a good idea to keep  them similar to the basic dos font.

next, the lower case letters. essentially they are rathe r shitty… both upper and lower case fonts tend to look real shitty. now we me rge em:

each letter is a combination of the lower case letters a nd the upper case letters.. all i'd do is take a piece of one letter and overlap it, occasionally using "U" (under in aciddraw) to put it under the upper case font… here's how: $$$$Ss $$$$$$$$Ss, $$$$$$$$Ss,`ýý' $$$$' `$$$b$$$$' `$$$b  ALT-B, select an area$$$$ss$$$$$$ ss$$ $$$$,$$$7$$$$ ,$$$7 $$$sS$$$$$Ss$sS$$$$$Ss $ý' "$sS$$$$$$$$ý' $$$$' `ýý'  =====⇒ $$' `ýý'$S, =====⇒ $$' `ýý',S, $$$$$$$$$, $$$$$, $$$$$$$$$b $$$$$b $$$$ $$$$ ss$$ss$$

* place it somewhere touch it up a bit   that the curves   roughly match

now i'm going to add blocks to enhance the artistic appe al. stuff like « and ¬ smooth out the plain blocky $$ fills. in additio n i'll correct any logical inconsistancies from the merge thing. ie, the sh aded area.. that "d" should not be there to curve things back.

other blocks can be added as well (to the fill): &, %, ° , ±, G, #, ò, , etc..

BE CREATIVE!

now ya shade. this is the part that no one seems to get.

you'll notice that the ° character has many m any uses. it blends well with red, brown, and purple, and fits the colour coding of this an scii. when you're picking your colours, remember to be sensible! that's wh at most people tend to forget: make a colour scheme that looks good with just p lain -letters-.. here:

 $$$$ $$$$$$ $$  $$$ $

etc… be creative, again :) anyways, that's all i have to say about that. look at the thing… pretty nift i think :) later. -nootropic SAUCE00Ascii Logo/Shading Tutorial Nootropic 1996022756P
