Incredible ASCII Art

Every once in a while you stumble on something really exceptional. For example, consider the two links below:

In case those links go down, here are screengrabs of the links above. They are not as impressive as the real thing, but they will give you a good idea of the detail and complexity of these pages:

ASCII Superman ASCII Powergirl

Ok, so this is not pure ASCII art. These images use color, but hell – I’m still impressed.

    Uh… that isn’t even close to impressive – guess how they did it?

    1. typed a bunch of random 1’s and 0’s.
    2. Made the 1’s and 0’s transparent, background black.
    3. pasted the entire thing over a picture of whatever they wanted.

    Takes about 2 minutes.

    @Not ASCII art at all: Actually, it’s even simpler than that. There is software out there that will take a JPG or PNG file and output something like the stuff above. It takes 5 seconds.

    Not ASCII art indeed.

    I saw one once which was a massive close up of the Joker with his hands tangled in his hair. I was impressed by it. (I hope it wasn’t a scan and translate job) and have been trying to find it ever since!
