Graphic Design -> An Explanation of the Drawing Systems: Isometric

Isometric

Image - Isometric drawing

This is one of the most used paraline styles, as it defines an object with little distortion and it includes three faces of the object.

You must work from a corner view for this style. The lines that project from this view are angled at 30o to the horizontal.

When undertaking this and other conventional drawing styles, remember to apply other criteria simultaneously. This may be through exploring a rendering technique to enhance the form of your object; making subtle design alterations to your object in each drawing; or including some freehand sketches, using the convention as a starting point.

In this example, the student has clearly labelled each drawing and has chosen a common rendering scheme that is linked to the colour of the labels. These drawings were created using a drawing board, onto cartridge paper and then cut and pasted onto the black ground.
