Is it possible in photoshop to adjust the line tool while holding SHIFT so it could create a 26 or 30 degrees line angle ?

Sorry, no. Not possible. Shift will only constrain to 45° angle increments.

  • So no posible way to make it easier in PS heh! :(

  • Nope. I'm not really certain why you'd even begin to use Photoshop for isometric drawing. Illustrator or any vector-based app is much better suited for it.

"Isometric" pixel art, as per Eboy uses lines with a 2:1 horizontal:vertical ratio. As far as I am aware, these are constructed from copy-pasting pixels rather than using Photoshop's line tool - here's a tutorial.

This is a 26.66° angle (arctan (1/2)).
