My drawing of 'Darth ASCII'

Meet Darth ASCII.

Tonight I learned about Maxwell Joslyn’s Sith Lord Challenge. The idea is to draw your conception of a Sith Lord, name it, and submit it.

Before I had even looked at other entries, I asked, “do we have to be good at drawing?” to which he replied, “most decidedly not.” In the submission section it mentions you can text it to him, which made me joke, “can we submit ASCII Sith Lords?” And thus the seed for this idea was planted.

I enjoyed the creative challenge of picking characters that would work and am really pleased with the result. The exclamation point for the light saber jumped out right away. Then the A for the body. I first used a u for the lower face and was quite happy when it also made a ventilator. Add umlauts for eyes? Perfect.

Check out Maxwell’s page and submit your own!

This post is brought to you by the letters A, ü, j, C, and punctucation !
