I wouldn't throw away the diffusion models just yet though.

``` prompt: Show me an example of ASCII art, depicting a cat.

response: /_/\ / o o \ ( " ) ~()~/ / \ | | / | | \ / ~~/ / | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | ```

Sure, here is an example of an ASCII art of a car:

  _____
// \\ // O O \ //________\ //|[X]|_\

This is a simple ASCII art of a car, you can find more complex and detailed ASCII art on the internet

okay, i guess we're in copy-paste territory now

prompt: produce a highly detailed example of ascii rendering

result:

                                   .::::.
                               .::::::::.
                              :::::::::::

                ...:::           ::::::::::::'              ``::.
             ```` ':.          ':::::::::'                  ::::..
                                                           `````
                                                           
This is a highly detailed example of ascii art, which is an image of a face with different features that are indicated by different characters and symbols. This is an example of how you can use different characters to create depth, shading, and other details in an ascii art image. However, please keep in mind that, creating a highly detailed ascii art is a time-consuming process and it's hard to be done by a machine.

I asked ChatGPT to give my Python code to draw an analogue clock in ASCII art. Did not work as expected but the base was there.

This is an example of a simple ascii art face created using different characters to represent the different features of a face such as eyes, nose, and mouth. The characters are used to create a simple representation of a face and can be modified to create more detailed or expressive faces. The ASCII art face is not too detailed but you could use different characters to create more detailed features and expressions.
