Jack-O-Lanterns in ASCII Text Art

Jack-O-Lanterns are so flexible. You can make them scary, merely spooky or kind of cute and almost cuddly.
Carving them is much messier than creating jack-o-lanterns in ASCII art.

An ASCII art jack-o-lantern is a good way to start your first try at ASCII art. Once you figure out the size and shape of your pumpkin adding the face is mainly placing lines and dashes. Of course, you can get fancier, more elaborate. Larger sized creations take more time (of course) but it’s more like filling in the spaces. Smaller ASCII art creations which require more thought about each individual character used and how it works with those around it.

Vampire in ASCII Text Art

I’m not a vampire chick. I did wear a black shirt today but it was random chance – black is not my first colour choice. My main interest in vampires is the immortality thing. Would it be worth being a vampire and dealing with no sun, no food (other than blood) and the other vampirish things of legend and lore, in order to live forever? Of course, there is no guarantee of actual forever. That pesky stake through the heart thing…

This is my ASCII art created vampire for the vampire, paranormal fiction and Halloween fans. Only one so far.
