Amiga ASCII characters by Mortimer Twang, probably mid-1990s.

Amiga ASCII by Desoto, 1995-1996.

Graffiti-inspired ANSI and ASCII by Smooth (5m), 2020-2021. Some of these have unusually high resolution (160-255 chars wide). via sixteencolors

By K. Wheeler (Rosebud) 1992-1993.

Normand Veilleux, ca 1994. He wrote a tutorial on his special technique to make ASCII.

By Roy Sussman (aka Phoenix), 1991-1993. One of the more blocky ASCII-stylists on Usenet back then. Also see Oviatt & Keech.

By Susie Oviatt, 1992-1994. She was part of the minority of people who made blocky ASCII instead of line-based ASCII on Usenet in the early 1990s (also see RikRok).

Also: Susie Oviatt’s ASCII art tutorial.

By RikRok Keech, 1993. The blocky ASCII-style was less common than line-based ASCII on Usenet in 1993, as far as I’ve seen. Keech uses negative space, which sets these works apart even more. On the other hand, portraying animals fit right into 1990’s Usenet.

(I’m assuming this was published on Usenet, but not sure?)

Work stages for Normand Veilleux’s ASCII Mona Lisa, 1994. From his tutorial about manually converting images to ASCII using a grid.
