Animated Isometric Ocean Waves

Inkscape Tutorial

Another request from a reader of the blog – how to do ocean waves in Inkscape in an isometric view?

It had me puzzled for a moment but sparked the curiosity right away. Isometric views have their unique challenges. It’s not a real world view as the the projection has no points of perspective. This view makes it hard to add animation, especially to characters or animals due to the number of directions needed.

I think I found an approach that rather easy to follow. Hopefully, it also makes for a helpful tutorial.

I hope this video does help with the creation of isometric elements in general and isometric waves in particular. Have a look at the earlier tutorials on isometric creations here.
