About this app

If you're an artist and ever wanted just quick and easy drawing reference for hands, heads, or even feet (IAP) without having to awkwardly pose your limbs in front of a mirror, this app is for you!


HANDY is an artist's reference tool, consisting of several rotatable 3D limbs with a variety of poses useful for drawing. You can also customize and edit your own poses for hands, feet, and skulls.


Fully adjustable 3-point lighting means you can get easy lighting reference when using any of the 10+ included 3D head busts. Handy if you’re painting and need to know what shadows the head casts from a certain angle!


Also available is the Animal Skulls pack. With over 10 different animal species, it's great for anatomical reference or creature design inspiration.

[Foot rigs and Animal Skull pack require additional purchase]


NEW in Handy v5: Edit the materials of models! Selectively turn off their textures, adjust their specularity, or tint them a certain color.


Perfect for comic book artists, painters, or just casual sketchers!


Featured in ImagineFX's Top 10 Must-Have Apps!

I don't usually write reviews, but Handy absolutely earned it. With brand new (free!) features being added such as subsurface scattering, new high-resolution models, and ability to load multiple models in a scene, they've established themselves as one of my essential tools for digital art. I recommend it to anyone who is starting out drawing or rendering and needs that solid anatomical/lighting foundation. Can't wait to see what features they will come out with in the future!

There is not a better made artist assistant app than this. You can bend at every joint! They have heads, animal skulls, feet! You can move the lighting, change colors of the lighting, set shadows! The 3d models are incredibly intricate, and the coding is sublime. You people working on this app, thank you! P.s. a tiny thing that I think might just be with my phone, the opening selection screen is now sideways, it no longer fits along my screen normally, still works perfectly though! Oneplus6

This app is literally so... handy. Just having this as an option has convinced me to draw more, easy access to references and being easy to customize. Sometimes it can be hard finding refs of exactly the pose I want. Only used it for hands so far but it's great. I love that you can modify the lighting as well. Really recommended!
