    Hi Brad. A little tip for the 'shadow/light' part you did at 11:10: In my opinion it is easier/more convenient to add a layer effect (color overlay) or even go with the adjustment layers (for more control) on the group you want to "recolor". so you can copy/paste that effect easier to other elements (especially if they don't have the exact same shape.

    ps: great that you're back on tutorials. I've missed those sooo much!

    Really cool… I'm looking forward to trying it out myself. One quick suggestion, it would be cool if you called out any keyboard shortcuts that may apply when you are doing things. For instance ctrl/cmd+g for grouping etc… You could say the shortcut or just have it pop at the bottom right corner of the screen when you do the action.

    Great tutorial. Is there an easy way to get the realistic cast shadows, all at the same angle like in your original example, or were those created by hand?

    I'm all-in with Affinity. The Photo/Designer/Publisher trifecta is AWESOME. The only thing I really miss from Photoshop is the timeline for doing gif animations. But I have an old copy of PS CS6 for that when I need it.

    Holy schnikes! These are some amazing tips! Currently taking your cartooning in procreate class as well.

    Been wondering when you're going to do some art and not just product reviews. Great stuff!

    How's it been since you've been going back to art school?

    Hey Brad, nothing wrong in this method or not here to show-off or something
    but, in AI or PS, you can map actions to function keys with Isometric Actions, making it way easier in just one click.

    Opens 3D app, press a button and creates cube, which takes seconds. This seems to be a very protracted way to make 3D objects, plus you can only make flat planes and square objects.

    If you learn basic Blender, you'll probably make this kind of thing very quickly.

    Thanks Brad! I'll watch this so I can compare with the Experience of Isometric design between Affinity and Illustrator!

    Loved this tutorial 😀 😀 I'm just wondering do you use the same technique when creating characters in isometric view?

  18. SockBot says:

    This is so cool! What a useful feature for game design

    One if my projects uses isometric. TBH, I'm stuck. It's not easy being green.

    I have no idea why the quality of this video is garbage. Hopefully Youtube is processing a better version now. The original video is 4k.

  21. Dopa Min says:

  22. Toxin says:
