I have a couple of full-body apps I enjoy for art (particularly Magic Poser) but I find the hands and feet particularly lacking in these. This app fills that hole wonderfully, I can get the hands and feet into better positions and get a better view of them to work into my drawings. The movement isn’t 100% perfectly, real-life accurate, but it’s better and more realistic than most other apps I’ve used.
Don't like hands? Find drawing heads from different perspectives difficult? Have issues figuring out how fingers would logically be positioned? Find lighting difficult to predict and figure out? Then this app may just be for you. Seriously, this app lives up to it's namea very well. I honestly would have so many more issues with hands without it and it helps a lot with heads and lighting as well.
As a sequential artist at SCAD I have to draw hands a ton! It was so hard finding specific hand references. Also feet! Boy do I have to draw lots of those. Man it was a pain, but not anymore! I tell all my friends about this app (plz sponsor me lol) anyways, I’m a huge fan. This has been so helpful with anatomy. The lighting features are also super cool and let you adjust both day, night, and artificial light around the body piece.
The developers keep working on this app adding new content and improving the app overall. I started with the first release and have grown more impressed every year since. Worth every penny if you are an artist or just enjoy looking at hands and feet, disembodied heads or various skulls... I have found it invaluable over the years for reference and for practice.
Ah yes I am so grateful that because of my illustrious Kroger career I am now able to afford luxuries like this. This is what I call two dollars well spent. The feet cost extra but fear not my children the mutilated hands are completely free so if you ever want to add something more interesting to your drawings you can. I am disappointed that there are not many face models but that’s okay. I think “Caucasian male” and “Erin” are good enough for me.
