I love my alphabets!!

In my last post I had shown a preview into the portrait of the lovely Emma Watson using only 1s and 0s. This form of art is called as ASCII art.

Here’s another example. The Batting Maestro (who got out on 99 again today!!) Sachin Tendulkar in ASCII art.

Is it very difficult to create ASCII art? Actually yes if you decide to do it on your own, but child’s play if you use converters available freely on the net. What I’ve used here is one of the best and most user friendly among the ones that I’ve laid my hands upon.

www.text-image.com is a brilliant site that can do the job within seconds. It also gives you three varied options namely

HTMLASCIIMatrix

Though the B/W ASCII mode and the Matrix mode are not as impressive, the HTML mode is really good.

Here’s another example of good ‘ol Hollywood hunk George Clooney. This picture has high contrast and a high level of detail. But the script ofn the site does a pretty good job!!

Note: Make sure you are using a resolution of atleast 1024 X 768. My site looks best at this resolution!!

So have fun creating ‘ASCII art’ and don’t forget to tell people you heard about it on angadsodhi.com!!! Cheers..
