hmmm...here's my two cents, i think that there is something not right with the landscape.. i searched for some pixel landscapes on the web, and i've seen that the base lines of the bldgs, roads, houses, etc. are parallel to each other.

i can't quite explain it that much, but here is a rough draft of what i mean:

Sorry if I sound rude, but that's definitely not isometric. Look at the link that Myrddin posted on page 5 if you want to see how to make it isometric.

By the way, I made an art gallery.

Sorry, k.digennaro. That's not an isometric grid. Here, I made a grid for you. ;)

Load this into the Photo Flood Fill plugin...

... Or simply use this for your map.

Just remember: Two steps horizontal, one step vertical.

For the first attachment, try the Grass section of this page (http://www.19.5degs.com/element/835.php) and use it for the plots.

I notice that you credited me for the website; please credit Myrddin. He showed us the original site on page 5, I just posted another page of the tutorial.

Thanks, Rubrica. Although, the link on the first page is the link which I gave, the one to the Basic Lines page, not your Grass page, so perhaps it's an indirect credit... Anyway, not arguing on credit, it's a website I thought would be useful to others and further others, not to lay claims to anything. I do thank you Rubrica for your consideration, though.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Looking back on the first page, my Merlin character looks a little out of place, if you see what I mean, therefore, in light of such, I created my self in the pixel form which has now been adopted:

PixelMePNG.png

Although, I thought to myself 'that looks too much like everybody else's, why not go for something a little different, garment-wise?'. Then that got me deliberating whether I should go for a historically accurate person of the 6th Century. Which led me to think 'no. Stereotyping for the win.':

His beard doesn't show quite so well, but who cares, he's wearing slippers! And that's his cloak trailing behind him, not an extension to his slippers.

So, k.digennaro, could you please replace the Merlin figure on the first page to this one above? Many thanks.

And I dibs on the creation of a medieval castle. :D

Me too, me too! Could you please replace my kitten with this one (i made her looking little better)? And could you also enlarge a bit my poor little house upthere it is too small, Thanks!

I dibs on a 900m statue dedicated to my all-mightiness in the center of the town.

I want my statue too :lol: !

(and so, before the town was even built up, they started a bloody and vicious civil war about who was going to have his own statue :lol: )
