LostArtPress on InstagramThe trickiest urinal yet....To 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.
