Figure Anatomy is a great reference and learning app to help draw human characters for both beginner and expert artists. This app works on both iPad and iPhone.

Choose from a number of poses from 3D scanned models, and create your composition by adjusting lighting and the camera view. Just like in a real figure drawing session, move the lights around the model to create an interesting interplay of lights and shadows, or to match the lighting of a specific scene.

Sketch using standard view as reference or bring the models to life by utilizing the Augmented Reality (AR) feature to put the model in a real environment. Check your sketch proportions with the reference model using the Sketch Alignment Camera feature. Share your work with your friends on Facebook.

Meto awesome ,

It’s fantastic but...

I love this app and I can see something extremely excellent coming from it, i mean, the poses are vary well done and the way you can move them like that is completely amazing...but the thing that you only get so many poses and even when you pay for all of them it’s still only a few and I think I speak for everyone when I say that as an artist the limits of inspiration and something to use as a base for your work is something they prefer not to have and though the idea of it is great I think that it lacks something that would give it the full potential of this fantastic app so...
So First I think you should give it a little more rotation options because though it’s cool that you can move all most all of the character with just one slider it also means that there stuck the same pose. What I mean by that is let’s say (name) is using this app and all of the sudden wants to draw a man with one hand out and the other on his hip, well, (name) could simply take the character’s hand and put it on the hip with a simple slider. This can be done and you could even add it so it’s like the light adjuster and this could also be handy if you wanted to move the head.
Second thing is that you need to add more poses. The ones you have now are great but after a while people will get tired of the same poses
Here are a few ideas that would be really good to add:
Running pose
Jumping or feet off the ground and hands in the air
Hands on hips siting crisscross or on legs
A high kick
Arms folded
Some sort of yoga pose maybe
Hugging self (as if crying or the character is sad)
And these are just some ideas! You can change anything if you want!
The third is that if your gonna have to pay for all of the modeled poses at lest add one or two characters that are free because though it’s cool that you made it so your not having to pay for every one of them it’s still good to have at least some of it free so they can get the idea of the app.
Thank you for reading out my prospective of what you could improve on the app and I hope to see this app grow!

Poor resolution for some of the images you buy

Ironically, the free image is one of the best resolution of the images I have. Two of the three I’ve purchased of the female model are poor resolution (images #4 and #6). The images I’ve purchased of the male model seem fine, but the images I bought of the female model were a waste of money.

iOS 11.1 required

Wants to install an “older version” when trying to update, saying it requires iOS 11.1 or newer.

Last update required 11.03 and wanted to install the “older version” too. I was hoping this update would have fixed the issue.

This is on an iPad Air 2 with iOS 11.1 installed.

Used to be a great drawing reference though I agree it needs a little more unlocked (free) content. Kind of a teaser.
