The size for 1 character includes 4 directions (down, left, right, and up) and 3 patterns for a total of 12 patterns in a set order. One file should contain 2 characters vertically and 4 horizontally, for a total of 8 characters. The size of one character is calculated to be 1/12 the width and 1/8 the height of this file.
