A drawing reference for the mobile artist.

Cast drawing is a discipline that is traditionally taught in classical art ateliers. The foundation of a cast drawing study is based upon careful observation with attention to detail. Once mastered, this approach can be easily applied to many other artistic disciplines.

Like having an art studio in your pocket! Casts are perfectly lit and are shown in pure grayscale to allow the artist to focus on the tonality of the shadows created by each form.

Study a series of 7 basic forms - independently and in combinations.

• Combination studies are presented in full 360-degree rotation, with 20 photos each.

• Browse all studies easily using the thumbnail preview.

• Zoom and rotate images to view additional details.

Another great drawing reference application from EnsoMobile, Cast Drawing 1 is an invaluable tool for any artist that would like to improve their drawing abilities.

Very good


I just drew a thee shape set-up from this app and I was able to create very good modeling. I had some frustration trying to find lighting that would allow me to see the scene and the paper, but was able to work something out.

I worked from an iPod so I didn't have a huge reference image, but I could see enough shadow and highlight detail to draw the forms realistically.

Missing Cast Shadows


The app is nice. The shapes are clean and lighting is classic. Modeling a form is nice, but there needs to be a lighter background so you can see the effect the form has on its environment. Cast shadows from form to form is nice, but without the environment, this app is lacking. 5 stars if the background showed drop shadows.
