I was wondering if anybody might know of some good resources on making isometric tilesets? I have an idea for an isometric game, but I can't really find anything on creating isometric tiles without using a 3D program like Blender. Granted, I might go that route anyway for the pre-rendered look, but I really want to try creating them by hand first!
If anyone knows of some good tutorials or articles on the subject, I'd be very happy to see them. Google just isn't doing much for me right now, so I'm hoping someone here can help me out!
EDIT: I did some more intense Googling, and found some decent stuff. http://www.angelfire.com/rpg2/vertexnormal/tutorials/tile_tutorial.html looks good, as well as this ridiculously easy one in GIMP! http://www.stankirdey.com/content/how-make-isometric-tile-using-gimp-28-moment

I love video games and movies. For as long as I can remember, my dream career has been to work in either of those fields. More recently, I've wanted to work in game development, because I feel that you can be a lot more expressive in games than you can be in movies.
I love being outside, but not in the winter - in Wisconsin, when it's cold it's COLD, and so I do most of my game development in the winter, but sometimes I work on projects a lot in the summer, too. It really depends on how motivated I am!
I also love the Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide series, The Twilight Zone (original series), Star Trek (old and reboot), Star Wars, music, writing, Minecrafting, hanging out with friends and playing Magic: The Gathering, and generally enjoying life.
