Virtual Pose 2 is the second volume in what is fast becoming the ultimate visual reference series for drawing the human figure. For the professional and student artists, it's the next best thing to working with a live model - and a convenient option for amateur artists who have no access to studio sessions. Each volume includes an interactive CD ROM with 54 full-figure poses that the artist can rotate 360 degrees around the axis. The artist also has the ability to zoom in on the pose, thus presenting the human form in a way that allows deeper understanding of shape, form and gesture. Ranging from action to classic, from standing to reclining, these carefully selected poses were designed to offer visually pleasing as well as challenging drawing subjects. Furthermore, there is a choice of male or female models to draw from, music for inspiration and drawing tutorials, making Virtual Pose 2 an invaluable tool for every artist's reference library.

When people can't help but feel compelled to caress my sculpture, when they move the palm of their hand over the smooth curved surfaces, or when they scan the rippling texture with their fingertips where shadows are trapped, I enjoy their response and the glances between us. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

Virtual Pose 2 is a must have for all artists! 10. Juli 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This product is a MUST-HAVE for all artists! Life drawing skills are important for all artists... I work in the game industry, often 60+ hours a week; There just aren't enough hours in the day to make it to a life drawing class. And that's where the Virtual Pose series saves the day!
Thanks to Mario Chakkour's Virtual Pose series I am able to improve my life drawing skills without having access to live models!
It's a quality product all around, but it's really the CD-ROM that shines. You open up a model to draw, spin him/her into the position you want - and draw! AMAZING. GENIUS. And what a great deal! There are other companies selling inferior product for 10, 15 times as much.
TIP: If you're a beginner to computers, there's a nice interface to help you through and gives you nice music to listen to while you draw... But if you have any computer skills at all, open up ("explore") the CD-ROM and you can double-click the .MOV files and enlarge them to full screen! That's one more massive plus about this product, you're NOT forced to go through a custom interface to view the models unless you choose to.
I highly recommend this product. It is truly rare these days to find such a high-quality product for such an affordable price. Get it now and build your life drawing skills!

An outstanding visual reference 9. November 2002
Von M. Gondek - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Any artist interested in portraying the human form knows how expensive model fees can be. Traditional pose books are often very good, but naturally show only one or two angles of the same pose. This can be especially frustrating for artists working in three dimensions, like I do.
In this book/CD set, Chakkour has compiled 34 female poses and 18 male poses, some in color and others in black and white. The model is posed on a "lazy susan" type turning platform, which is turned a few degrees for each still shot. This means that the very good lighting is constant at every angle, allowing for clear veiw of the body's curves and cast shadows. In those poses where the model is extremely "exposed" (legs overhead, for instance), there is very faint, tasteful shading that does nothing to detract from the usefulness of the shot.
Each pose is given one full page of the book, with six views of the pose displayed on the page. The companion CD-ROM (PC/MAC compatible) then displays each pose in nearly seamless 180 degrees. Using the mouse, the user can rotate the model the full 180 degrees, backward and forward.
I have a few very minor quibbles that I hope Chakkour will address in the next volume. First, a top-down view would be extremely valuable for sculpture work, but I can see how setting up the shot may make this unfeasible. Second, some of the poses aren't very dynamic, or the models look stiff and unnatural. Third, in a very few occasions, I've seen the pose change slightly as I rotate the model. That is, an arm or head drops a little more at each turn of the platform, until it's several inches lower than the starting pose.
None of these quibbles are serious deterrents, however, and the book/CD remain my single favorite tool for working at my home studio. Now if I could just figure out how to rotate the model without getting clay on the mouse...

Very nice - but could use some simple improvements 14. April 2001
Von Kindle Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This product is very much worth its price- a keeper for someone learning life drawing. The models are beautiful, and the variety of poses is very nice. The ability to rotate the models around in 360 degrees allows selection of the exact pose- choosing the proper lighting and shadow, and allows an infinite variety of poses for drawing practice- or perhaps even sculpture creations.
Suggestions/Negatives: The creators of this software should add some classical background drawing music into the program, or scrap the cheezy MIDI music all together. What would be really nice would be a SAVE feature to return quickly to the model, pose, and degree of rotation that you were previously working on. What really irks me about the program is the long startup and shut down times- the producers/authors force you to watch their intro and exit credits & bells and whistles- wouldn't it suffice to only see this during the (one time) installation? A single splash page during startup of the program would suffice- let us artists get on with drawing! Another nice feature would be the ability to import additional models from the producer in the future. Perhaps these suggestions will occur in version 3 or 4 if enough users pester the producer to incorporate them into future versions. More instructional movies than the 4 that come with the program would add to its features.

Too small 20. Januar 2005
Von Aspiring Artist - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Virtual Pose is a great idea but could have been executed better. There are six photos to a page with a large margin so the photos are pretty small. More than two thirds are in black and white. Every other page on the left is a sketch so there are no photos there. The photos on the included CD are very small and can not be zoomed in without getting fuzzy.

All color, less blank space, and high resolution on the CD would make this much better.

If you want full color and high resolution, try other books. For example, check out "Art Models" instead. You can get it with a disk that has all the photos and they can be zoomed in so they are HUGE.

GREAT Idea, But Needs Fine Tuning 23. Juni 2004
Von Colorgirl - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is a great idea. For those who do not have access to live "in person" classes with models for figure drawing, this book is an adequate substitute.
I love the idea, but I have some frustrations with this book.
First of all, some of the female models are very skinny. There is not enough variation of bodies in the female section for truly interesting drawings/paintings. Also, the poses are kind of awkward at times.
The most frustrating thing about this set is that the photos are not very clear in the book, and on CDROM screen, they are better, but the shadowing is not defined enough. I would like more intense lighting for more defined contrasts to draw from. More beautiful drawings would be spawned with more intense lighting contrasts to bring out the contours with more definition.
That being said, this idea is a very good one. I appreciate what this book is trying to do, the modesty with which the models are handled, and the efforts made to make the models accessible from many visual perspectives.
If some of these other issues were to be addressed in further editions, it would be a fantastic series even more useful.
