2D game art Isometric ocean wave tutorial in inkscape

Another request from a reader of the blog - how to do ocean waves in inkscape and in an isometric view?

It had me puzzled for a moment but sparked the curiosity right away. I think I found a rather easy to follow approach that hopefully makes a helpful tutorial.  


I hope this video does help with the creation of isometric elements in general and isometric waves in particular.

  1. I don't think I've ever tried making isometric elements, now I can't wait to try this! Great tutorial as always!

    1. Thanks... I will try and record the basics isometric tutorial as a video as well - there is a similar one on youtube but it would be nice to revisit the old step-by-step tutorial and update it.

  2. is it easy to animat the wave? i want a animation of water becomming a wave
