I've also been adding stuff to the gallery for reference, including another batch just a few days ago.

Hi, I'm still in muckup-prototyping phase of project but this time I've started from menu/sub-window system to avoid difficulties of embedding menu related stuff into app in future :).

Here's a sample shot, still I can't believe, how full keyboard image can so easily fit in 80x50 screen. :D

Absolutely, had to share this one right away :). Your work is always creative and interesting, even more so since some of it is eventually brought to life!

I'll have to drop this one into the gallery when I get a chance.

First time poster here. I've only recently started playing around with REXPaint and ASCII in general, but I like the medium and am having fun playing with the tool. Here are my first few pieces in order of creation.

House in the Ravine


Shadows in the Dark


Mock Map


Please let me know what you think. Brutal honestly appreciated!

Hey MrStimpson, thanks for dropping them here! I honestly just think they're pretty great for having just started.

In the second one I can see the text and borders being darkened though, especially since it overpowers the dark map (even without the map, pure white on black is kinda hard on the eyes!). And in that one those doors (?) are an unusual glyph choice. At best maybe use those for windows, and try something else for doors.

I love the atmosphere and flow/layout of the last one!

Thanks for the input and compliment, Kyzrati. I agree that the white on black was too much, so I darkened it up in the next pass and rearranged some of the map/UI elements to better reflect the direction I want to go with the project. As for the doors; I played around with the idea of using something else for them, but I just kept coming back to that glyph because it felt intuitive for me. Especially with the filled version being used for a shut/locked door. Not sure if it's intuitive enough for other people, so you may be right on it being an issue!

Here's a more "finalized" version of a world map.



I may start a small WIP post in this forum to store my project's work if that's ok? There are some very talented and helpful people here so it would be awesome to have my pieces presented in a place where they can be smashed to bits if need be.

Hello REXpainters!
I couldn't find anywhere on the web suitable cp437 6x6 font so I've created one ( in RP :) ).
Of course it was not possible to have all accents in international characters, while keeping font readable, so most of them are just left pure-latin.

Nice font, gumix! Love how clean it is despite the size. Mind if I put it up on the main site? (with your intended license, of course)

And your current project is looking very interesting, by the way--been seeing your progress on Twitter :)

I think I'm slowly getting the hang of this program! After a day of doodling around I started working on a ship. Still need to get the sails in... not sure how I am gonna do that yet, but pretty pleased with what I have so far.

Practice doodling a "2D" side view of... somewhere. ;)



I'm still not quite sure if all the elements are identifiable without explanation, but it was a good exercise to re-interpret the "somewhere".

The arc on the first plane is like metal detector, and things on the second plane looks like a student's little room. So, I think, this is a guarded student's campus with unusual architecture. Is it correct?  :o

"Unusual architecture" is right, and there is a little room in there; the rest is less so, but that's probably my fault for still being new to this and choosing an obscure "somewhere" to draw from a very different viewpoint than the normal way to see it.  (Hint: it's not a real-world "somewhere".)
