'Extremely useful!'

'I use this in tandem with photo references and it’s helped my art look so much better! I love being able to rotate to whatever
angle I need and set up the exact lighting situation I want. The only limit is that you really only have the four options for
faces, but that’s why I use it in combo wi

'Literally the best art reference app I’ve ever

'Art is something that truly helps me out in life, but recently, I had been struggling to find the drive to finish anything I
started. This singlehandedly fixed that. If you have any interest in drawing humans, I suggest you get this app immediately. The
only issue I can think of is that it’s pret

'Get this app!'

'Look, I’m a professional artist, been published in comics for over 20 years. THIS app is what it’s all about. My greatest
weakness is hands and feet. I get by, but this app helps me do more than just that. If you’re an artist and want to spend a
couple of bucks on an app, make it this one.

'The best art reference app you could ever get'

'This has to be the BEST reference app I’ve EVER bought. I just wish you could position the head in different poses instead of
it being at a natural pose. It still has amazing varieties of hands, lighting sources, etc. I highly recommend!'

'Every character illustrator needs this.'

'The ability to move the models in space is an incredibly helpful tool. (Everyone hates drawing hands, and I have even more
trouble with feet, so this is a game changer.) I’d say it’s reasonably priced too.'

ability to adjust light source, and make your own poses, is fantastic for references or just for simple study sketches. Highly

'The amount of features this app has is amazing and they’re all beneficial. I love how much depth it has too it and I wish there
were more apps who had the same vision in mind as this one. It doesn’t focus on monetization it just wants to help artists and I
love that about this app.'

'A godsend'

'Not to be dramatic or anything but this app singlehandedly saved my life. I mean I still hate drawing hands, but at least it’s
slightly less terrible now. I would love an update that expands the amount of preset poses, but that’s just because I’m
usually too lazy to customize the poses myself

'It’d be nice if you could adjust the skin tone as well. Lots of artists forget that people with darker skin have lighter palms.
Also, artists would be able to see how different lighting situations affect different skin tones. Other than that, if they’re
