the last two are wrong, the first ones are right depending on the light source

Yes i think the same. The first are correct (comprobate).

But the other two the "look" for me is incorrect.

Well if you or anybody can make a edit to correct shadow, or... ¿Any tutorial that isometric shadows?  ;D

You were almost there,
I've done a quick edit on the second two shadows. Nothing too complex with shapes like this, all you need to do is make a projection line for each of the casting corners. I've illustrated this by leaving the red lines in I used to figure out the shape. then just copy the shape of the top surface.

Obviously it does depend on your light source but only using 30 degree lines for shading isn't technically true. A few places i have seen they do there ISO shadows like this...



I hope it helps.
