On my pursue to teach myself how to create isometric graphics for my Facebook game in the very small amount of time I have I contacted one of the best artists of isometric art in the UK: Rod Hunt. and contacted with him on Linkedin. Fortunately his response was very thorough and informative.

First off all let me tell you that I was amazed when I saw your art, really spectacular work but I guess you’ve heard that a lot before 🙂 I’m a web and interactive designer myself. Now I’ve been working on a concept for a Facebook game and also I’m designing the game graphics. I found that images in isometric projection are the natural choice to go. As a very beginner I’ve started to explore isometric illustration and so far I’m quite satisfied with the results (I’ve attached a screenshot in case you want to check) Anyway back to the topic I’d love if you can answer a couple of questions about your workflow or reference me to a place or article where I can read it 🙂 I was interested do you use isometric graphics in most of the cases or that vary? As well, do you use Illustrator? And how long roughly takes to produce an image. As I noted I’m glad with the result but takes me ages to produce everything manually in Illustrator…well, the fact that I’m very beginner with Illustrator is a factor inevitably but still I feel the process it’s kinda too slow…
Would be great if you find time to answer these 🙂
And all the best. Keep making great art!
