I have seen a lot of terminal with sweet shape in the beginning of terminal command-prompt, like this:

command-prompt

and i want to add a shape like this :

.....____________________ , ,__
....../ `---___________----_____] - - - - - - - - ░ ▒▓▓█D
...../_==o;;;;;;;;_______.:/
.....), ---.(_(__) /
....// (..) ), ----"
...//___//
..//___//
.//___//

save whatever ascii art you want to add as a text file and name it say "ascii".

Open your home folder in nautilus and copy this file to your home folder.

Now if you press ctrl-h you will be able to see hidden files.

There will be a file .bashrc

Open it and add the following line at the end of the line...

cat ascii

Now save it and close it.

Run your terminal.

If every thing goes well, you should see what you intend to see...

there is a nice illustration with photos at the following link...
