To create an ASCII art picture, follow these steps:
1. chose the picture you want to make
2. Put it in a word doc.
3. Make it transparent by putting the “watermark” effect on
4. Change the layout to “behind text” so you can type over it
5. Now, use letters and symbols to type over it creating the, with letters
6. When covered with different letters and symbols for the different things, and parts of the pictures, highlight the letters you want, and make them a color, (example; for hair, highlight the Zs and make them black)
7. Save it, now your done! Enjoy!
