Sketch fast with MANIKIN a 3D posing tool containing a collection of models and tools aimed to help professional artists and amateurs alike in drawing anatomically correct figures with respect to light & perspective.
Create scenes with multiple characters or manipulate simple 3D shapes to quickly visualize the outlines of your sketches, generate storyboards with screenshots or frame your comic book illustrations and mangas.
The mannequin was born out of the need for an interactive human anatomy reference to tackle problems like foreshortening, proportion and depth.
We expand upon the wooden mannequin for figure drawing with various 3D models and tools to help you with shape recognition, shading, perspective and stance.
Moving things in 3D often involves a lot of interaction for even the simplest of goals. This is why we wanted posing to be as intuitive and simple as possible with a bare minimum in menu diving and without losing complexity.
A straightforward and intuitive design keeps all functionality close without drowning you in options.
Our goal is to let you spend more time drawing and less time preparing.
Even for the most hardened artists it’s not easy to imagine how the body moves. In MANIKIN all animations can be viewed in detail. Use them to get faster to your desired stance or as use them as a figure study for motion.
CAMERA & LIGHT
We also give full control over camera & light. Use 360 mode to work and use "point of view mode" to get the exact camera angle you had in mind.
To ease your shading needs you have up to 4 fully adjustable lights at your disposal to create dynamic drop shadows and realistic depth.
SCREENSHOTS FOR DIGITAL PAINTERS
MANIKIN also features cutout screenshots so you can immediately use them in Photoshop, Coreldraw, Procreate, Paper or whatever digital drawing software you use. No more hassle with editing screenshots.
