About this app

Create scenes with multiple characters, manipulate simple 3D shapes or add predefined objects like: bicycles, furniture, weapons and much more to visualise your ideas. Now you can quickly develop storyboards to plan your comic books and mangas.

MANNEQUIN
The classic wooden doll was used as an interactive reference for human anatomy to help with challenges like proportion and depth. We improve the experience of drawing the human figure with various 3D models and features to help you with shape recognition, shading, perspective and stance.

WORK FAST
Often 3D apps need a lot of actions for even the simplest of goals. This is why we wanted to make the creative process in MANIKIN as intuitive and simple as possible without losing complexity. A straightforward and intuitive design keeps all functionality without drowning you in options. We want you to spend more time drawing and less time preparing.

ANIMATION REFERENCE
Even for experienced artists it’s not easy to imagine how the body moves, which is why we added the animation references that offer an extensive selection of figure studies on motion. Every animation can be viewed in detail and can also be sued as a starting-point so you can reach your desired stance faster.

CAMERA & LIGHT
We also give full control over camera and light. Use rotation mode to work and the point of view mode to get complete control over your camera angle. To ease your shading needs the app offers 4 adjustable lights that allow you to create dynamic shadows and realistic depth.

SCREENSHOTS
Take screenshots without background that can immediately be used in all digital drawing software (Photoshop, Coreldraw, Procreate, Paper,...) From now on you don't have to remove the background from reference material.

Easily can be the best app on the market. There are few problems that make it frustrating to use. 1 - locking doesn't seem to lock anything in place, making the use of multiple objects a nightmare. . Also, there isn't a way to lock the camera. 2 - exporting your frames isn't working. I have to restart the app often because it will only export the first successful exported scene.

This app is very underrated! Just some suggestions: I didn't realize that there were 3 sliders for xyz, since they were all on the same vertical position. Also, I didn't realize that the "field of view" slider was for changing the sharpness of the angle of perspective, because you only really see the difference in perspective when you zoom in/out after. So maybe add those to the tutorial text. I would also like if "copy scene" also saved the camera's FOV, orientation, position, and zoom.

Love the app and that it doesn't have any distracting details on the figure, but rather just shadow and lighting. The movement system is a little finicky and takes a little bit of getting used to when looking at the figure from different perspectives, but overall very useful. My only problem (which might be on my end) is that it very quickly overheats my phone and depletes my battery, so I can't use it for too long. I use it on a Galaxy Note 9 if that may give any insight.
