Modeling with 2d isometric images?

Hello. I'm a bit new to 3d modeling, and I was wondering if it was possible to create a model using these images for reference:

I've noticed, when attempting to model, that the arms are longer in the side view, than they are in the front view. I can't seem to get it right. Any tips?
I am working with blender3d, by the way.

They're only helpful to get a sense of proportions, there's too much perspective distortion to make them you've found out. You can't rely 100% on rotoscoping anyway, there's always going to be something off, that's why you stick with 1 reference and let your skills correct the orthos that don't match. You could tweak them to match in photoshop but that won't help with perspective issues.
