View Full Version : Isometric House

10-30-2011, 05:55 PM
So I've been experimenting with isometric building mapping on Inkscape. I developed a technique where I first draw normal top-down floor plans on a rectangular grid, then apply transformations to make them conform to the 30-degree iso grid. Using this technique I created this model of a two-story house in a mixed classical Greco-Roman styled architecture. The floors are shown in a cutout view, with the ceilings and foreground walls removed, and the interior walls shortened. All the surface texturing was done in GIMP.

One place where I cut some corners was with the walls, which is why they look paper thin. I considered making them properly "boxy", but ultimately decided that it would be way too much work.

very nice... did you draw the furniture yourself as well? :)

Very nice and detailed, and definitely not something I could do ;)

Yes. Surprisingly easy to do in Inkscape but still more work than I'd like. There's no way I'd attempt anything approaching a complete furnishing, but just throwing a few pieces here and there is still better than leaving all the rooms empty.

agreed, it doesn't take much to give it a small lift :)

I'm going to stick to "empty" myself :D
