Good but LIMITED


This app can be very helpful however there are several things that drag it down. The amount of options for lighting and pose are near limitless and completely open for you to manipulate. The preloaded poses are varied and dynamic enough that I find very little need to ever pose one of the 3D models manually. I can usually find a preloaded pose easily enough and move it around a little bit to get what pose I’m looking for. In those respects the app is great however its limitations rear their head soon enough. You are very limited when it comes to body shapes, a problem that is very noticeable with the women models which don’t really mimic any body shape except the classic “superhero” shape. You cannot alter the face/expression and there are only a few options for hair (all of which are nothing near realistic). So any drawings you do from this app quickly begin to all look the same, same body shape, same proportions, same face, same hair. For the price the app is good enough, just wish you could alter actual appearance of the 3D model more. It’s fine if you’re gonna crank out canned drawings of superheroes but if you want to explore drawing actual figures you’re gonna be left wanting. Oh also for the male version of the app always turns my music waaaay down when I open it and won’t let me turn it back up, super weird cuz the woman version doesn’t, I dunno.



I absolutely love this app! Definitely a life saver... I bought it, after many hours of debating it and looking at all the other art reference apps (which cost more) but this one seemed much more appealing, and worth more than the price. If you're an aspiring artist, or a professional, this app is a must have! Worth every penny, and more. I did notice it was hard to use on my iPhone 5c, but works beautifully on my iPad after I got the hang of the mechanics. Has so, so many poses. Both silly, serious, and sexy. Jumping, sitting, standing, lounging. There are also plenty of hand poses to get the job done, so don't worry. However, it would be nice being able to manually pose the fingers. May be a little hard posing something so small, though.
I love the ability to choose the body type as well! Made me happy to see there was a small chested super thin pose, as well as a heavier type.
I would love a facial app, to add to the two apps you've created. Or incorporating that into these.
Keep up the fantastic work! And if you're someone looking into buying this app, don't hesitate! I'm cheap, and I'd buy this beauty all over again.

Amazing for the price


Stick with the controls. You'll get the hang of it. I've become very proficient at posing the figure despite a few quirks in the joint controls. There's nothing else like this on iOS, and even on the Desktop this is unique, especially for the price.

For a few more features I would gladly pay a bit more. Added articulation of the upper thoracic; more hand poses (or even better, posable fingers); more hair styles; the ability to export and import pose data (to get around the 20-pose limit); IK posing; more variety of body shapes and proportions; a selection of basic facial expressions (to really complete an expressive pose); better skinning at the extremes of joint position and rotation.

There appears to be a minor bug. I've filled all 20 slots. When I lock my iPad and then unlock it while ArtPose is open the app reloads and all the labels in the Save To slots have disappeared. Luckily the labels and the data in the Open From slots are preserved, but I have to systematically open and again save every pose and retype the label in the proper numbered slot. This is minor and worrying, but annoying, too.
