ascii or ansi?

If one wants to create arbitrary images, there's no reason to use either. If one is looking for a challenge, they both fill unique niches.
what about the desire for the specific æsthetic that text-based art evokes?
I suppose rasterising a displayiﬁcation of such a textfile would make things easier, though i'm not really sure how much that's fundamentally different to programming any other image.
ah, nethack's graphics... they remind me of that awful game i made when i was 8. i had a great time making it. it sucks though.
took me a long time to get the title screen to look nice xd
I'm going with the currently adopted standard because it allows you to do text art in more contexts due to the broad support. For instance, bad apple in YouTube captions
Nethack's graphics are not asciiärt. That said, i know of a game that uses [can use] graphics like that and has asciiärt.
I don't understand what this poll is about. ASCII is a text encoding created by ANSI. what is "ANSI art"?
It's been a long while since i've played Dwarf Fortress. I ought to again sometime.
citrons: I understood ‘ANSI art’ to refer to art that takes advantage of ECMA-48 termesc codes, regardless of charset.
