CG Software lets us go crazy with our imagination, so this week I want to challenge you to tell a story inside a room. The only rules are that you must make two walls and a floor for your scene background. Then fill it with objects to tell a story. Your isometric room could be a winter wonderland, a bedroom, a space station or even a doctor's surgery. You can even upload your model to Sketchfab if you want everyone to take a closer look.

Note: Make sure to render using an isometric camera (not perspective).

Here are some amazing examples of isometric rooms for inspiration by Roman Klčo

#WeeklyDrills 034 - Isometric Room | The Rookies
I had many ideas for this week’s topic, but I settled on a bedroom. I had a lot of fun creating all the props and little details to make this space look like someone lives there.I used Maya, Substance Painter, Affinity, Arnold, and Nuke.

How many entries can I submit?
As many as you want.

How do I tag my project?
During Step 2 of the project building process, you will see a tag input field in the right column under your project title and description input fields. Note: Do not include  "#" with your tag (e.g. #RookiesWeeklyDrills), the tool already handles that for you. See below for example.
