ASCII art tutorial 1.0 by diamondie ASCII art tutorial 1.0 by diamondie
I've been working on this tutorial since May or June, but multiple things have caused delays and I was only able to finish it now. Click the Download to Desktop button to view the tutorial, which is a single HTML file without any images, besides the inline ASCII pictures of course. The title image is made with FIGlet, except for the border.

I've changed the structure of the tutorial multiple times and I hope it's clear enough now. There are surely some errors in the information, so feedback and corrections are appreciated. I'm afraid the HTML isn't too pretty, I might fix that in the future.

I've decided not to include any links in the tutorial, because they would go stale eventually. It's easier to edit the description field than the actual file, so I provide a few pointers here. Most of the things mentioned in the tutorial (such as software, fonts and definitions of words) are easy enough to find with Google.

:bulletred: The ASCII tutorial in Spanish, kindly translated by =jSepia
:bulletred: My ASCII art website
:bulletred: ASCII art on DeviantART
:bulletred: JavE
:bulletred: The history of ASCII art, mirrored here

Most ASCII pieces in the tutorial are mine, the rest are used with permission. Unfortunately I've had to leave out a few pictures that I couldn't obtain a permission for (the author was unreachable or didn't reply to my email), but I provide links to them. Here's also a link to `nemoorange 's great piece used in the tutorial, so you can view it as intended and comment on it.

Oooh.... an ASCII tutorial. You don't get a lot of these avidly advertised on the web. I don't do a lot of ASCII art myself. But i took a look at your tut and it is a very neat tut. I mostly looked at the pictures, some really amazing ASCII art in there.

Here is some love, just because there is not enough love comments on here :D

Very good tutorial. I feel stupid asking this, but how do you type a line like this "|" in Courier New? I think there's something I'm missing. (I copied and pasted that one)

Do you mean the shift+slash? | Right above the enter key. It looks like an elongated colon, but its actually a straight line. It should be the same in courier, i think. |||
