In this Speed Art I’m creating an isometric ice cream truck based on the isometric grid. You can setup isometric grids in Illustrator in several ways, either by creating lines on a different layer and then locking this layer, or by creating an isometric grid pattern.
I created a tutorial on how to make such an isometric grid pattern and how to set it as guides. (Isometric Grid Pattern in Adobe Illustrator – How to Create Your Own Custom Pattern)
Once you setup your isometric grid, make sure to turn on the Smart Guides (View > Smart Guides). Now your are ready to create your isometric art 🙂
Here is a quick tip on how to create round isometric objects. Create your shape and then go to Effect > Stylize > Round Corners. By applying Round Corners this way, the isometric grid will be respected and we’ll get the proper look.
But let’s get to the fun part :). Below you can watch:
