Isometric Dungeons

Telecanter, of the awesome silhouettes, has a couple of recent blog posts about drawing isometric dungeons, which give the illusion of depth to your maps.

Very cool, and it seems like the basics of this technique would work when done by hand, or with layers in a GIMP/Photoshop sort of way.

The aptly named Fantastic maps shows some of the basic steps involved:

1: Draw Map, 2: Rotate Map, 3: Magic!

This may be what I need to get me to finish the semi isometric tomb map I have been idly sketching on a post-it for a few months.  Then I can get on to trying to kill the players with it.
