    Those aren't isometric, they are perspective projections.

    Those are really cool! And, uh, could someone please explain for my artistically challenged self how Iso/Perspective are different? I'm not trying to be snarky, I'm just genuinely confused.

    Hey Gidde, Iso is an orthographical view, so unlike perspective there is no vanishing point and the dimensions of the object viewing don't change (i.e. there is no foreshortening). Isometric is (I believe) at 45 degrees on the x,y and z axis. At least I think that's the difference!
