Artist's Eye

Artist's Eye


Surprise your friends by becoming an excellent artist just like that. Unleash your creativity.
Artist's Eye is utility that helps you to draw or paint with real pen or pencil to paper or canvas.
Choose model picture (e.g. photo) and while you draw watch your drawing or painting through the phone or tablet (that need to have camera).
Model will be shown semi-transparent on the top of your ongoing drawing helping you to outline the contours. A bit same way as with camera lucida obscura already hundreds of years ago ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camera_lucida ).
It is best if you can attach phone to some kind of support stand so that it stays still and both hands are free.
This is not cheating but a new way of working and learning as well.

This app got Honorable Mention in the Most Innovative App category in Best App Ever Awards 2013 ( http://www.bestappever.com/android/awards/2013/winner/iapp ).

This is full version without ads.

Tested in Samsung Galaxy S II (Android 2.3.3), Samsung Galaxy 10.1" tab (Android 3.1), HTC Flyer tab (Android 2.3.4) and Sony Xperia Z2 compact (Android 4.4.4).

Artist's Eye is nominee in the Best Art App category in 7th Best App Ever Awards competition. If you like the app please support by voting here http://www.bestappever.com/android/v/rtst

It works It does exactly what its supposed to. I liked it and will keep on using it. A bit more functionality and flexibility would be nice, like being able to rotate the image so you can view it in portrait mode, and also so you can rotate the phone180 degrees so the phone can sit on the artist's left hand side instead of just the right. It would also be very handy if the zoom control was easier to get to and had more zoom. It is a handy app, I hope it keeps on improving.

Need a version for Amazon Fire HD tablet This is a great straight forward app with no hassles. However, there is no version for the Amazon Fire version of Android. How about it?

Horrible on phone, great on tablet I'll try this review again. I got this for my mother, the artist. She paints from photographs in her art class and doesn't do well with proportions in her work. This app works GREAT on my older tablet, but not on my Galaxy S4 phone. It's easy to figure out ways to support a phone (such as on a cardboard box on its side with a hole for the camera), but will take quite a bit of ingenuity, which is hard to come by in a "non-handy" family, for the tablet. Plus my tablet is really heavy for her to carry to and from class, along with all of her supplies. I can't get the app to recognize and import photos on the phone. It only "sees" 2 (identical) photos. I emailed the developer some time ago, but have yet to hear back. This actually rates 2 stars because of that. I really want to love this app, because when it works, it's terrific; otherwise it is a waste of space and $. Since my mother can't figure out a smartphone, she would be using one of my devices. I was even considering getting a no contract phone for her, just to use this app, but without any developer support, that's not going to happen.

Love this app Absolutely the best drawing app, especially as it allows you to zoom in on small detail
