Far from being as violent as the Judge Dredd story; Block Mania (although I’d squeeze in a reference to Old Stoney Face any chance I get), I’ve spent a few evenings drawing a bunch (and more to come) of isometric blocks. Isometric tile editors are usually associated with pixelart, not vectors, so my original intent was to script a tool in which I could sculpt with these blocks. I discarded that idea after realizing it would be a massive undertaking and not a very stable solution. Not really knowing what I would do with them, I continued drawing anyway, as I’m just so fond of isometric projection, as evident in one of my earlier posts.
I’m pretty sure that I’ve just experienced my most creative day/night ever. It’s strange how a little sleep deprevation, due to working the graveyard shift, can work wonders when it comes to spawning new ideas. I won’t go into any details but I don’t think that I’ve ever filled over eleven pages in my sketchbook in one day before.
Now, I’m sure not even half of the things I’ve put down today will amount to anything more than what they are now, scribbles in a notepad. But even so, with eleven pages of possible projects, all with different varations, something good is bound to come out of it.
Time to go to bed.
