    ASCII Art

    Does anyone know a person or people I could contact to help me design some ASCII art for my game ? I need someone who can make for me original pictures of creatures, etc..
    Thanks

    Or while I'm here, how can I make a picture in a DOS window, eg. a bitmap or jpg. ?

    I don't know those people, but a search with Google on "ASCII art" showed me there are quite a lot people working with ASCII art, you could try to contact them.

    Thanks, but I've already tried Google, AltaVista, HotBot, Lycos, etc.. All of those people have mediocre sites with not much content, none reply to the emails I sent, most sites haven't been updated for a year or two.

    Do you think there could be forums such as these, only about ASCII ?

    DOS windows are made for text.

    Perhaps you should be learning DirectX, allegro or OpenGL or something.

    So there's no way to make a bitmap open in the same DOS window. Well, thanks for the help.
