Stan Prokopenko and his team have just released a new app called "Skelly."
It's named after the virtual skeleton character from Prokopenko's anatomy instruction videos on YouTube.
The Skelly app lets you put the human skeleton into any pose and to see it from any angle. Tapping on a joint brings up a spherical overlay with directional arrows that let you drag the joint in the desired plane of movement.
It’s a useful tool for art students or professionals wondering what the skeleton is really doing beneath a life pose or for anyone wanting to visualize a pose from scratch.
The interface is intuitive and easy to use without sacrificing any of the nuances of the human body’s complex range of movement.
I tried it on my iPad, which is big enough to really see all the small bones, but it will also work on other mobile devices.
Proko made this promo trailer with his characteristic wit and sense of fun.
I recommend the Skelly app for animators, storyboarders, comic artists, illustrators, and figure painters.
It's also available at Google Play
