Ian Parberry’s experiments with coloured ASCII in high (text) resolutions. One image uses 3 colours, and the other 4. Made in 2011.

Another experiment by Parberry in 2012.

Three-color ASCII Art gives you the option of rearranging the order of the CMY triples to give an embedded texture that is only visible at middle distances. The texture disappears when viewed from long distances. Once again, click on the images for a larger version.

More examples are available here. Parberry has made lots of experiments with colours and resolutions in ASCII-conversions. He also made typewriter art in the 1970s, as previously posted.
