I’m a semi-realistic digital artist and I have been using the ArtPoseFE app for about a month. Overall, I am happy with my purchase. Will recommend using app along with other references. Pros 1. Ability to change the pose and lighting of the figure. 2. Option to see the skin or muscles underneath. 3. App works best with other photo references. 4. Great for double checking anatomy, perspective, lighting. 5. Useful for artists who need to brush up on technical skills. Cons. 1. A little difficult to control. (I had a hard time posing arms naturally.) 2. Model comes with one blank stock face. App is good for poses only. 3. Wish there were color skin tones. (White, African, Tan, Asian, etc.) 4. You have to buy both male and female app separately. 5. Buying both apps is a little expensive...
This is a great modeling tool for difficult poses. I love that you can freely articulate every part of the body, change lighting/light source position and choose to show muscle structure on the model. The only thing I would like to see in the future is more control over the body type. The range provided through the single slider is great but would love to be able to adjust different characteristics individually. Overall this is THE BEST art model app for Android
Fantastic app! I've been drawing for 22 years and some poses are still pretty difficult to picture in my head and draw accurately. This app is a tremendous help. It was a bit tricky to use at first for the more difficult poses but it's pretty easy to pick up. Highly recommend this app for any artist!
Great app, with a few problems. 1. There is not enough flexibility in the lower torso. No matter how I pose the chest or legs, I can't get the lower back curved properly - it stays straight (compare to a real person sitting and hugging their legs). 2. Toes look weird when curled downwards. 3. Have a point indicator for a light source that you can move anywhere (underneath the model, or in the model's hand) instead of a vague light that can only move from overhead to the side. Otherwise, a useful and well made app. Worth the money.
Great Overall, but could be improved The anatomical accuracy of the female model is good and provides great reference if you want accurate poses. However, like the male version it would be better if there was a greater variety of body types (heavy set, muscular, elderly etc) instead of just a range between lean and the hourglass shape (still using the slider of course). Another nice thing to have would be the ability to have greater control over the red point adjusters in order to make more slight adjustments in the pose (like in pose tool 3D)
I don't understand whether it's just me and my phone, but the app is so laggy to the point it's unusable. Shame because I really need it as a reference to draw and I'm already spend money to buy it. Now it feels like a waste. My phone is Samsung Mega 2 and other apps on my phone are still working just fine.
