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:

* place it somewhere touch it up a

   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, #, , , etc..

BE CREATIVE!

here it is with a bit of colour, and a few touchups with
 various characters. 
you'll notice that if you don't look really hard, you wo
uldn't normally see the
oddball characters. it all tends to blend. 

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.
