I'll be brief on this one: This really caught my eye http://www.tafn.info/TAFN/commandos/siteimages/artwork/large/csf/CSF_art019.jpg I am wondering where to start when it comes to 2D isometric drawing. I am fairly skilled at doing sketches.. straight lines.. all that jazz; however, I want to start specializing in this area :). If anyone has any good websites, readings, please!

gnomon is full of good stuff if you have the money, but I wouldn't bother with cheap crap it will show in your art. I bought the vehicle sketch DVD and the guy is freaking amazing, its takes practice to use the skills but its well worth it.

Hope that helps

Yes. Look Here: World Creator 1.5 Freeware or World Creator 2.5 Commercial http://www.inet2inet.com or their Forums for Loadsa Isometric Stuff, coding and resources.

Rhino3D also has a "Sketch Rendering Mode" among other features, if you have the Penguin module. The blurb about it on their site:

Quote:
Simulates hand drafting. It allows you to create images in styles that look like drawings using pencil, ink, chalk, pen marker, watercolor (and others).

Configurable parameters for the wavy or straight lines. Control over line width, intensity, and color.

Texture fill. Simulating pencil, watercolor. User definable texture fill styles.


Its on the expensive side, but you could make some cool stuff with it.

Try looking at some books on line drawing and perspective, or any technical drawing books (not the mechanical ones, but the buildings one), typically used by 1st year Architect & interior designer student.

I used them before back when I was in college. There were tutorial on how to make isometric drawings in it but I forgot what the book called.

ANyway, from what I remember, typically that kind of drawings are made using an angle of 45/45 or 60/30 or 30/60.
