Edited by Armwarmer (131255) on 2006-08-30 21:28:37 I fixed my spelling. beyboard. hehe.
Locked by Armwarmer (131255) on 2006-09-09 13:23:19 I'll be posting the winner soon! Just give me some time to think...

Okay, so I think you all know what I mean. I have this other website that I want some of these pictures for, but I don't remember what they're called, so I can't google them, and I don't really know how to make a decent one for myself. Lemme try, just to illustrate.

(Edit: This following picture is a big ? but it has reconfigured itself into some other..thing. My deepest regrets.)

So, give me the coolest ones that you can make or find! You'll get a little extra if you can come up with some sort of tutorial for me.

Rules:

1. Contest ends September 9th

2. Winner gets 1 karma

3. If somebody can come up with a way to teach me how to do these they get something too!

Thanks all!

Ashley

There we go!

Just to let you know, if you copy/paste from (ie. Microsoft Word) onto DDN, it won't work at all. DDN doesn't do well with lots of spaces in messages. Ergo, I had to take a screenshot of my work to show you.

An easy way to do this would be go into Word...
Format > Background > Printed Watermark then choose your picture you want 'symbolized :?' and resize it if needed.
Press the space bar or tab until your mouse is over the image and use whatever keys on the keyboard that would make the shape you want.

Hope you're now less confuzzled!

and progress to harder things once you've succeeding in making a few little things.

ok, I made some more.

1. This one is supposed to be the scarecrow from the Wizard of OZ or just a scarecrow in general.

2.This one is supposed to be Alice in Wonderland.

3. I really like this picture, although I didn't make it
Image hotlink - 'http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/nl/4/45/BB-ASCII-art-screenshot-zebra.png'

4. I couldn't get this one to work so I'll give you the link and tell you which one it is. en.wikipedia.org . . . it's about the 3rd or 4th one down I think. It's of the train station in New Zealand.

Hello to everyone who's art got messed up:

I thin that it may stay put if you use something to keep it in place.

Instead of just doing what I did with the question marks, maybe use some periods as a place holder.
