lololol
You're the master of fast ASCIImating.

Ohhhhh I just realized it's a reference to your name. :P

I am REALLY quick at ASCIImating. Being commited and using what I call "Hannah Barbera techniques" I can ensure decently quality ASCIImations in short time.

Ooo never heard of Hanna Barbera before.  But I think I know what you mean.  Though, I'm far too obsessive and picky to be fast, so it wears me down.  I probably won't do any more big animations in a while.

Ooo okay.  I didn't play that game yet :P

They made shows like scooby doo the jetsons, the flinstones etc...

They were the pioneers of animations techniques which require minimal effort, maximum result.
For example, reusing a short loop 3 times as opposed to animating the entire thing. or to reuse scenes sparsely so people don't notice.

I try to make my ASCIImations in such a way that I can copy/paste as many frames while only doing minor cleanups.

I could maybe make a video to show such things.

Oh, wow, I feel like I shoulda heard of them by now. :P

Yeah, I should try do that more often.

That could be helpful

I can tell some of the tactics I use:

Screenshaking and colouration of frames are added once animations are done.
Walk cycles are copy/pasted and nudged appropriately.
When a cycle is used, I copy one of the frames several times. The I copy paste the other frames in between.
When I have a nudge a tall object into a direction, I ddo'nt nudge is line by line. (Add or remove spaces)
Instead I add/copy a space on one line, move up one and repeat. Then I work my way back down like a printer.

Haha, that Dota 2 reference.
Also you guys are so prone to breaking the fourth wall in your entries :P

@GIS: Also, by studying your technique I realized that I use very similar techniques, especially the... uhh... especially... especially all of them. Yup.

Like the smurfs?

Also last night, I had one of the best ideas i ever had! Too bad asie's going next...

My reply is going AweAndWonder-fully. Should be out tomorrow. :)

@GIS
Actually I use most of those techniques myself.  *shrugs*  No idea why it takes me so long.  Maybe I'm just too picky.
I mean... except that one time I decided to use a loop of 80 frames instead of 5 or 10.  That was just me being a derp.

@CTDS
There's no doubt you're full of ideas, but I'd like it if you would wait until my part is done before asking to be next.
Otherwise, it felt like you don't care what I do, as long as you get a chance to do what you want to do.

@Asie
Sweet!

Uh... isn't it tomorrow?

by AweAndWonder

If asie is really going AweAndWonder-fully, then "tomorrow" means next month.

Okay, okay, bad joke, I know. :P  (I never *intend* for my animations to take a month!)  He'll probably be done before then, but either way, I think we should be patient.

... Could you please publish yours, asie? It's the 24th!

About 50% done.

ASCIImators Battle is not the only aspect of this site, CTDS.  I'd prefer one good ASCIImation over 10 rushed, sloppy ones any day.

Take your time if you need to, Asie, just don't forget about it altogether!

Well, I haven't finished any asciis in a while... Actually, I have lots of them that I do need to finish... So why do I procrastinate all the time? Maybe it's trying to juggle Khan Academy, Tetris, Minecraft, BL, ASCIImator, Puzzle Pirates, Facebook, Gmail, piano and violin lessons, and... some other things... that I do in my free time... and trying not to forget when I fail drastically. I have too little time to make an ascii... Oh, and Sploder! Another victim of my overloaded schedule! I rarely use it anymore! :/ Kongregate is something I use! I barely use Scratch and ROBLOX, and I sometimes use Drawception. So that's... let's see... 15 things listed so far?! You see! That's why I'm so impatient yet inactive! I'm a hypocrite!
30.08.2014 14:44

by CTDSThree

er...

I forgot to indent that passage...

And "hypocrite" sounds too self-hating...

And I think I forgot some things...

Shouldn't that be a freaking bullet point list?...

Plus, no one has published any ASCIImations in a while...

...

[insert a comment here]...

Ugh, I'm wasting my time! >.<

WASTED WASTED WASTED!!! NUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!!
