Marmoset has recently shared a new guide by Mark Knight to creating isometric art in Hexels.
Here is a short piece of the tutorial:
When launching Hexels, start with Trixels template. This uses vector mode and is designed for isometric art.
The document will load with the default ‘Trixel’ grid (circled top left). Over on the right side of the screen is the ‘Shape’ tab (Ctrl+6). This tab presents an array of isometric grid presets.
The presets change the grid aspect ratio as shown above. There is also a ‘custom’ option which allows the user to define their own aspect ratio. The following demonstrations use preset Isometric (1:1).
Before drawing, take a moment to think differently about the grid. Although the grid is made up of triangles, consider it as squares rotated in a 3D space.
