If you're an artist and ever wanted to use decent hand reference without having to awkwardly pose your hand in front of a mirror, this app is for you!

HANDY is an artist's reference tool consisting of a rotatable 3D lit hand with a variety of poses useful for drawing. The 3 point lighting rig is also rotatable, so you can rotate and light the hand as necessary for your reference. NEW in 4.0 - edit and make your own poses!

HANDY ALSO includes several heads and animal skulls you can rotate and light- great for getting basic lighting or angle reference or creature study!

Also having trouble with feet? Well now in there's a male foot available to help you out!

Amaaaaazing stuff

As a sequential artist at SCAD I have to draw hands a ton! It was so hard finding specific hand references. Also feet! Boy do I have to draw lots of those. Man it was a pain, but not anymore! I tell all my friends about this app (plz sponsor me lol) anyways, I’m a huge fan. This has been so helpful with anatomy. The lighting features are also super cool and let you adjust both day, night, and artificial light around the body piece.

Getting better all the time

The developers keep working on this app adding new content and improving the app overall. I started with the first release and have grown more impressed every year since.

Worth every penny if you are an artist or just enjoy looking at hands and feet, disembodied heads or various skulls...

I have found it invaluable over the years for reference and for practice.

Indispensable. A must-have for all artists.

I got this app way back when it was just funky hand poses, and I’ve enjoyed all the updates with various heads and the amazing new anatomy models. The lighting and positioning are as versatile as they are easy to use, and i cannot recommend this app highly enough for artists looking for specific quick reference in a pinch. Get it. Now.
