Trapped Under Ice Promo by thorindude Trapped Under Ice Promo by thorindude
One of my first big banner style ANSI's. I believe this one was possibly the one that got ICE's attention--or the other Zoyvod pic. Not really sure. (c)1994

Reminds me of the old BBS days, when all we had was the ASCII charater set to make images with.

Wow really enjoy the colors! The cool color scheme has always been a fav of mine. Did you do that retro effect pixel by pixel? That must have taken forever! Cool stuff!

Mmm, tasty stuff. The image itself is suitably retro, it does look like something you would find on the back of an old computer game, but it retains a sort of modern dynamism as well. As I always say with ANSI, good use of a very limiting medium. Nicely done.

ANSI is like an extension to ASCII art, allowing the use of extended characters (including the so called "raster blocks", of which this picture and most of ANSI art is made of) and color codes (16 foreground colors, 8 for the background). You can view it in MS-DOS using the ANSI.SYS driver or with an ANSI viewer, such as ACiDView.

I immediately thought "Metallica" and clicked on it when I saw "Trapped Under Ice".

I love the shading on the monster and how you combined the colors. *goes and looks through the rest of your gallery*

HELL YEAH! back to the comics of old. Kick ass... looks like a combination between Spawn and The Maxx. Teeth look fine, don't worry.

I'm starting to figure out what you said about repetitive elements in your works. ;-> I really like this piece otherwise, but the teeth don't look very realistic (which is also a problem in some of your other pictures) and I think the purple bubbles look really ugly. I rather like the logo part, even if it doesn't seem connected to the rest of the piece (apart from the bubbles).
