    Yes, I found it difficult to explain
    As for the interest, well, you kinda reminded me of cool iso-videogames of old, Amiga style, like Heimdall or Darkmere. And, I also kinda owe you 'cause it was from your tutorial on youtube that I came to know this site!
    Can't wait to see the result! Happy mapmaking!

    I'm going to steal your isos once you're done and do something with them

    Really! That is so cool, I have always wondered if the tutorials helped others to find this great site.

    I will make sure to post a set of tiles once I finish figuring out how I want them to look

    -------------
    Now that I have the tablet I can't stop trying to add hand-drawn to what I am doing. Here is a test of that.

    I want to make a finished map in this iso style but can't seem to get the right look... I guess the "tests" will keep going until I find something I like.

    It did! I'm living proof!


    Your test is cool, I like the hand drawn style. The only thing is that perhaps it appears to be too "cartoonish."
    You should try reducing the opacity of the outline layer, and/or perhaps add a little color. That is, not painting everything black, but a darker tone of the color on which you're drawing (for example, a dark blue/grey for the outlines of the floor in your image).
    I'm taking inspiration from old-school iso games, as in these images:

    Even in the second one, that is definitely cartoonish, the borders are more morbid, and I think that improves the overall effect.
    Given the choice:
    wheter to rule a corrupt and failing empire
    or to challenge the Fates for another throw, a better throw against one's destiny...
    what was a King to do?
    But does anyone truly have a choice?
    One can only match, move by move, the machinations of Fate.
    And thus defy the tyrannous stars.
