    Wip June/July 2012 Lite Challenge Entry: Isometrimorphosis

    "Isomorphic projection? What am I going to do in an isomorphic projection?"
    "wait -- doesn't Inkscape have an isomorphic grid setting? Ah, yes, here it is..."
    "I'll just play around a little here..."
    "Hmmm.... I wonder if I can do an arch?"
    "How about a row of arches? And what's on the other side of the structure? More arches?"
    "Doodling some paths between them..."
    "Oooh, if I make some of them into stairs, and they can go over and under each other..."
    "ooohhh, this is WAY too much fun!"

    I'm going to have a lot of fun with this one.

    Ah, oops -- I just noticed that I let some two-point-perspective slip into my isometric projection. I'll correct that with the next upload.

    OK. I've excised the accidental two-point perspective, but haven't fixed the paths yet (since isometrizing it made all the angles shift).

    Edited to add: OH! I could have fixed it without flip-flopping the angles by adjusting the top of the arcade rather than the bottom.

    (Lots of possibilities. I'm going to have fun with this one.)

    Oops, just noticed a spatial error -- hope I can fix it without too much re-working

    Reminds me of the Never-ending-staircase, except this one doesn't APPEAR to be completely impossible.

    I think my brain just died, trying to sort out the twists. Very cool idea!

    LindaJeanne appears to be M.C. Escher's long lost granddaughter. Coming along nicely.

    My brain is getting tangled up in Gordian knots, trying to keep these paths straight!

    Why don't you just map out some DNA while you are at it?

    I liked the first couple better than the subsequent "fixes" ... but then Escher has always been a favorite :-). Nice stuff!

    Actually, I'm starting to think I may agree .

    I've got a couple of different ideas of where I want to go with this -- so I think I'm going to play around with the possibilities a bit before I post the next update.
