How do I buy your pdfs?

First you have to purchase Deviantart points. You don't need to be Premium to do it. Simply click on the shop link, on top bar, right side of the search field (not available on mobile App, only from a browser).

There you can purchase DA points.

When you have enough DA points, go to one of my buildings page and in the right column you will see a button "Purchase", with the amount of points needed. You will then be able to download a PDF file with all the layers explained.

Each building is really time-consuming. I worked 10+ hours on most of them. Some of them take weeks to be done.

Paved and dirty streets I already made, but I was waiting to create a bunch of decorations to publish them as instructions. I think I cannot wait anymore. Here they are: HUM - Street sections

By the way, I'm really looking forward to those paved streets and lamps. I'm trying to get my village going, and it's hard to plan without them! Love the work!

amazing designs, it's very difficult to make constructions that are good looking. How did you become so good at it?

Thank you! I saw a lot of videos on Youtube with suggestions on how to design better buildings, with ideas, with suggestions, and I'm constantly trying to mix all this together.

Holy crap! How in the hell do you do stuff like this? What program do you use to map out stuff like this (I've been looking for one for a long time)! Keep up the very good work and I'm definitely subscribing ;)

My process is a little complicated. I'll try to explain it.
I created a folder, in my drive, containing all isometric minecraft blocks, in any possible orientation and configuration (you can see almost the whole set here: Standard Texture Showcase).
Each PNG is named with a three-letters code. For example, the classic ground block with grass on top is named GRS, the dirt block is named DRT, the stonebrick block is STB and so on.

I created also an HTML page, with a javascript engine that read a javascript archive where, manually, I inserted all blocks in a tridimensional array, layer by layer, block after block.
An example of a row of this file is "GRS,GRS,DRT,DRT,STB,GRS".
The HTML page read this array and visualize the whole creation in isometric. Each layere can be visible or invisible pressing a button.
With the same information it shows also the top view, using thumbnails I created apart.

I then proceed to take a snapshot of each layer, then I page them all together to create the final PDF.

You could perfectly do a low-poly RTS with these. Wonderful job!
