Power Pose Sketching Models

Art Manga

It seems like Bandai really wants us to get better at drawing since they’ve announced that they will be selling life-like poseable figures for all of your human-sketching needs.

And what’s more, these figures come with dozens of sweet accessories, making it easier than ever to draw someone wielding a sword, a deadly cellphone, or their own awesome lightning fists.

Now, some great artists can rattle off drawings of people no problem. But for the rest of us, it helps to have a model to work off, especially if you’re drawing something that doesn’t typically happen in everyday life.

What sets these figures apart from other poesable art models before is that these ones are built to only bend in natural human ways. This means you can’t accidentally put the figure into an unnatural pose, which could potentially mess up your sketch. And since they bend in over 30 places, you can get a lot more detail than from other similar products.

The figures also come with a variety of accessories and interchangeable parts, making it much easier to see what certain hand positions look like when interacting with objects.

If you think the male Body-kun and female Body-chan would make good additions to your artistic arsenal, then be sure to check back in April 2016 when they’re officially released. The models range in price from ¥4,320 to ¥6,480 depending on how many accessories it comes with.
