Book Overview

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...

Great reference

For those of us who don't want to have to find out when the local art school has models coming in, or don't want to look at tons of porn trying to find something for reference, this book and its predecessors are perfect.

Great product, great value

There seems to be a lot of banter about a VERY small issue - blurring some body areas. I choose to concentrate on the whole product - great models, the amazing abillity to change poses, rotate poses. A bargain, lovely models, easy to use and draw from. When is the next version coming?

Great Product and Customer Service!

I love this product, great customer service (not too many authors bend over backwards like that to solve technical issues, and sometimes, they DO happen). I don't mind the modest amount of cleanup (on both male and female models)... There are certain things that DO distract from the beauty of the pose, including...pimples and come no one is complaining about those? True artists shouldn't care... In addition, and in a recent newsletter Chakkour sent to those who registered through the web site, he explained why that was and it made perfect sense and it made me realize how different the USA is than, say, France, in terms of tolerating showing "everything" on bookstore shelves openly. I read the review where someone had to click a...zillion...times before launching a pose... I wonder if the matter was resolved at all before the disgruntled customer proceeded to blast such a quality, and dare I add, highly affordable product!

Near Perfect, and Here's why...

I love this third installment! The resolution is more than adquate. Some pictures are vertical, other horizontal. The vertical ones seem to be around 1000 pixels in height and will resquire resizing down of the window. The horizontal one really fill up my screen (set at 1280x960 pixels). The lighting varies between high contrast and even. I suppose, that way, both painters and sculptors are happy. Still, I think the goal here is to show the form, rather than to impose an interpretation. All the poses are in color! And, we get 2,520 images in all... I cannot imagine anything else of such great value. Printing is easy--right from the QT Movie Player (included on the CD. By the way, yo don't need to upgrade to QT Movie Pro, unless you want to manipulate the color and contrast of every pose on the fly. Projecting it on the wall is FANTASTIC! Simple... Plus, easy to use. Now, to Zoom in EXACTLY where you want... In other words, say you want to see the foot and the zoom put you on the belly button by default, just consult the book for all the Keyboard commands (rumor has is that due the HUGE size of these poses, an interface like VP2 was not practical. So, we need to use the mouse and keyboard commands (all that info is clearly laid out in the beautiflly printed hard cover book): If you are on a Mac, to zoom, Press the SHIFT key. To zoom out, Press the CONTROL key. Now, pay attention to this... To move the image (in ZOOM mode) to the particular detail you want: Press the OPTION key, and drag with the mouse/tablet. To fit image to screen: Press the COMMAND+3 keys. If you are on PC (which I am are the instructions from the book and read me file on the CD) To ZOOM IN (Increase Magnification: Press the SHIFT key. To ZOOM OUT (Reduce Magnification): Press the CONTROL key. To DRAG image (in ZOOM mode): Press the CONTROL+ALT keys, drag with the mouse/tablet. To FIT TO SCREEN: Press the CTRL+3 keys. Again, thank you for a great product that keeps getting better.
