In this weeks tutorial we’ll create an isometric house with roof and learn how to add some neat shingles. You’ll learn how to create two types of roofs, a tin roof and a terracotta style roof. We’ll be working with an isometric grid, the Blend Tool and the ? Appearance Panel (remember, the Appearance Panel is your best friends) and a neat red/blue color combo (download link below).
