Delusion and iCE present the all-new iCE Ansi Seminars!
New and aspiring artists can come with their in-progress
ANSIs and get help from some of iCE's biggest and best names.
The first seminar will be Sunday, November 8th at 11:00am
PST / 2:00pm EST on #iceansi and will feature none other
than Tetanus and Kadaver! All you have to do is drop by
#iceansi/#ice and show us what you have - we'll help as
much as possible with tips and technique for outlines, coloring,
shading, backgrounds, and more. If we find one we like,
we might even put it in the iCE pack! You can be sure Kadaver
and Tetanus have some good tricks up their sleeves - they've
combined for 78 releases since they joined iCE!
one, come all, these are the tutorials you've been asking
It's halloween and that can only mean that Hallucigenia's

Delusion / iCE Senior Staff

on irc by typing !massive4 in #ans or #ascii, by getting
#1 from pariahFAT on irc, or by downloading it from ftp.artpacks.acid.org).
UPDATE AGAIN (mongi)
is standing still. I simply do not have time to work on
it by myself studying at the highest rated engineering university
in Sweden and all. If no one shows any interest in helping,
you will have to wait quite awhile before the site gets
up. So there. Now you don't have to ask me anymore when
the site gets up.
I need help with is CONTENT. I already have the site design.
I need the usual stuff: articles, interviews, profiles,

ANSIMATION IN ICE 9810A (massd)
just a few days, iCE will release our iCE9810 pack, included
in this pack will be the iCE Blender Kombat
Ansimation that beat ACiD about two months ago. When we
submitted the ansimation to blender, it was in 10 pieces.
Since we only had 6 hours to work on the piece, we weren't
afforded much time for optimization or to fix the actual
technical aspects of the ansimation - we concentrated on
the art (which I still think is pretty cool in 6 hours).
long and short of it is, for everyone who didn't get to
see it, this iCEPack will feature the fully cleaned and
fixed ansimation including two screens that I left out in
the original ansimation due to confusion. Unzipped, the
ansimation weighs in at 1.08MB, and runs 2 minutes exactly
at 56k viewing speed in ACiDView (yeah
yeah, you have to use acidview or another viewer that supports
ansimation, we're working on it).
more fun coming in the next months from the team that puts
"monkey sex" back in "ansimation"! You'll
see what we mean.
A HAL-O-WEEN RELEASE (etana)
us, Halloween seemed to have "Hallucigenia" written
all over it. Watch for us October 31st, as Hallucigenia
presents its very special HAL-o-ween release. Be warned
though, this pack has more surprises than a graveyard under
the full moon... <insert maniacal laughter here>
PARASITE'S LOGO SALE (parasite)
for your very own parasite(tm) logo! $5 for ~20 line logo.
WE HAVE A WEINER! (count
the winner is... Drum roll, please... Dissonance, of Awe
Lettering! His entry narrowly beat out Cthulu's rather disturbing
narration of what he would do to me if I didn't give him
the pic. I sure hope he doesn't follow through :). You will
see the ansi that dissonance woin in the next iCE pack,
along with his winning entry. I intend to run competitions
like this in the future as well, so keep your eyes glued
to Acheron and the iCE packs for updates. Thanks to Cthulu,
Quip, Damien Clark and e_side for entering. Better luck
OOZE DEAD (dangermouse)
thought I'd let you guys know that the australian scene
emag "oOze" is now officially dead. Maeve Wolf/Tatharina's
ooze is now dead.."
we should all recognise what a great job they did over
the three issues they released..
There WILL be a final issue :)
THE LEGION CHAPTER 07 (maestro)
Legion Chapter 07, "HARVEST", will be released on October
31'st which is Halloween for all you knuckleheads that don't
know. We wanted to be cheezy and actually release a REAL
Halloween pack because we're cool like that. Trick or Treat!
NEW GROUP (dangermouse)
new group called sadist has emerged, reportedly headed
up by sephiroth.You can join them in #sadist..
FOS: THE REUNION ARTPACK (inazone)
you haven't heard, FOS will be having a "reunion pack" with
artwork by past and present members, which will release
in early January `99. It's a reunion because FOS originally
started out as an artgroup (1995-97); some of the packs
are still available on ftp.cdrom.com if you want them. Anyway,
if you were a member of FOS at any time between March `95
and now (either in the artgroup or on the magazine staff),
you are invited to participate. Former members of the old
groups Sabre and RAiN are also invited to join in if there's
any of you still around. Guest art is also being accepted,
but we're asking that all submissions be unique to the FOS
pack since this is a one-time deal.
deadline for submissions is December 20. Also, articles
for FOS #12 are due by November 15. Thanks!
FREE PIC PEOPLE! (count
wrong with you people? I advertise a free pic, and so far
I've only gotten 3 responses. And two of 'em weren't very
creative at all! I want things like "I should get the pic
because aliens are holding my mother for ransom, and they
demand a kickass c0 ansi as the price!" Except I want 'em
to be cooler than that, 'cause I know there are people out
there who can think up better stuff than me. This is a free
pic! Where ya gonna get a better deal?! Nowhere! So get
off your ass and submit something to me! If you don't submit
something, and then I catch you bitching at me for free
ansi on IRC, I'm gonna open up the can of whup ass on ya.

PIC! (count zero)
Here's the deal. I've got this pic that I'm working on (and
almost finished). However, I have nobody to do it for; nobody
has request a pic from me in awhile. So, just 'cause I'm
a nice guy, I'm gonna *give* this pic to whoever e-mails
me with the best reason for why they should get it. So think
up something creative, and e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'll leave this open until Friday afternoon (That's the
23rd). After that, you're outta luck.
Just to clarify something: You also have to include, in
your "reason why I should get the pic" message, the name
of the group/board/net/whatever that you want the pic to
be for, so that I can do a logo to add on to it.
people.. Acheron has been online for 1 year and 10 months,
and its becoming a bit much for me and spot to do alone..
I need people who will be willing to write articles (about
anything), gather art for the art gallery, photos, news
items, and anything else you think acheron needs.
might also be in order near the end of the year, so any
interested parties please say so..
on guys, get i

HIREZ.ORG UPDATE (mongi)
work with hirez.org is going pretty slow. Because:
1) I don't have much spare time for now
one has shown interest in helping. I'll go find people now
that I think can be interested and ask them
as I have time I'll launch the site. As for now, the site
is a temporary model.
to let y'all know: I'm not currently taking font requests.
I've decided that, to stem the tide, I'll open requests
at the beginning of each month (wait for the announcement),
and the first couple logo requests I get, I will do (the
exact number will vary from month to month, depending on
how busy I am).. I'd like to start concentrating more on
quality than quantity. Oh, and remember... Pic requests
are also welcome, but they're not free. Make me an offer
by mailing email@example.com.
PURG NEEDS ARTISTS (jandor)
is in great need of ANSi Members. We have always been a
group that mixed all different mediums of art. Please feel
free to apply as a starting artist or an experienced artist.

a month ago, a guy named "Viper" from a group called "X-Force"
asked me to do a header for a .NFO file for X-FiSO, some
subdivision of theirs. Welp, the header is done, but Viper's

afternoon, we'll make this brief. After taking much time
off from the scene, Sodium, our president, has announced
that he revive his smash-hit weekly news magazine by the
end of October 1998. We have no other information at this
time. Please check back here for details in the near future.
taking a long break, Shrimp, an Israeli ascii artist, is
coming back - This time to the ansi scene. Shrimp is saying
he (and many more) thinks his ansi is *MUCH* better than
his ascii, and he also finds the #ansi channel more suitable
for him (erm..).

am sad to inform all of you that defjamz will be delayed
until either horrid or someone else with version 1.65 of
ebuild comes foward and hooks me up. Version 1.6 has a bug

anyone has version 1.65 please find me on irc, or send it
to my email address.....

HIREZ.ORG SUPPORT (mongi)

the site. Therefor I need some people to help me with updating
the site and so. Writers, artists etc are all welcome. We

a small fee to Rw. We hope that Dangermouse will be willing
to help out with the page again.
