LostArtPress on InstagramTo create an iso view: 1. Draw a horizontal and vertical line. Use a compass to mark off four divisions. 2. Set your compass point on the last mark and scribe a circle. 3. Use dividers to step off our front, side and top views onto our perspective lines. This is helpful because we keep our proportions intact and see how they relate in space. Iso views are a handy way to walk around our design and see it in perspective. — from “By Hound and Eye” by Geo.
