Hi!
I want to practice isometric perspective, so I decided to do a building that I can see from my window. I want to be very careful with all the detail, so this will be a long term work.
Here's the basic shapes (I actually can't see the roof)


In the lower floor you can see some detail, but I will redo that  ;D

This is the real building:

Looking great on the first balcony.  The only problem I see is with the banding on the roof.  Try not to have long lines of pixels going parallel to each other.

Thanks! You're right about the banding. I will fix it  :)
Edit: I've added a photo of the real building.

Detail on the bottom balcony does look promising. So far, I like where you're going with it actually. Windows inside each division of the balcony don't seem as wide as they are in the actual picture, but I'd recommend only widening them if you want to stay true and accurate to the original.

EDIT: But it might just be a trick of the light.

I love the way that you made it I was just wondering why you didn't continue onto the picture. So that is exactly why I'm posting this because I would love too see the outcome of it being like if you added the parking lot and street lights. It's just an idea, but to tell you the truth I would love to see the outcome of the picture. (Also maybe add a little more detail)
Pixels make my head work. Not hurt

Thanks guys  :)  I will not be too much strict about real proportions or colors.
I made this set of borders, and added a little green square to mark which ones I think are correct. Please tell me if I'm right  ;D
