Cool. Love this sort of illustration and this one is sumpremely good. I am assuming that this was all done with the help of the iso grid? For the rectangles with the rounded corners, did you draw them flat/straight and then skew them to the iso view or did you add the rounded corners after you'd already drawn it on the grid?

 

After Matt said about the mushroom, I couldna find it. But on second looking, there it is (that'll teach me for not reading the whole post!)

 

Excellent stuff,

 

George

I drew it all on grid, rather than skew anything. just use the snap to guides then as you say use the corner tool to round it all up. Takes a bit of messing to get them all looking balanced as corner angles are different on opposing sides.

 

Edit: I'm pretty hooked on isometric everything at the moment, have a robot to do next, I could literally sit doing it all day. I love it (desperately putting off a brochure and a batch of boring flyers I'm supposed to be making for a client).

Another awesome piece David!

 

...the rabbit hole of "isometric-ism" is long and deep my friend, long and deep... :D

How did you get paper look? I usually use noise in Illustrator, but AD doesn't have that. Using a brush seems bit too freehandy.

 

AD does have noise, but it's rather "well" hidden! Go to the Colour panel and click on the colour well next to the Opacity slider.

It's hidden alright! Haha... but once discovered, this works way easier than AI's noise layer effect. Thank you.

Which one are you getting? :)

 

Well, Ive been saving ages for and I've googled & youtube researched the hell out of it, I was tempted with the cheap(er) Chinese tablets, but I'm terrified of warranty issues, quality and disappointment.

I'm holding out for the Wacom Cintiq Pro 16. The 13 looks brilliant too, but I know what I'm like, I will wish I pushed for the next size up. The 27QHD looks amazing but I work in studios often and also hot desk at two locations during the week so need to have portability.

 

Edit; Wacom are taking so long Ive researched myself out of it, iPad pro with a textured screen protector is the future, also the possible cable nest has put me clean off - plus I get top buy the Affinity App.
