PoseMy.Art: Your Ultimate 3D Posing and Animation Tool

Imagine a place where you can get all the posing references you want, not only that, you can pick between hundreds of animations where you can stop it at any frame you want to take a screenshot from any angle you want. 

Well, today, we are going to take a look at a great platform that allows you to do just that and more. Posemyart or PoseMy.Art is a platform aimed precisely at people who need a lot of references. It can be a great resource for both 2D and 3D Artists, and it can even be used to generate high-quality images… but we will get to that in a bit. 

We all know creating believable poses and animation is very difficult, and that can be true for both 2D and for 3D. There is actually a whole market built around selling references when it comes to anatomy and posing for references. But with this platform, you won’t be needing any other pose reference again. 

PoseMy.Art has a lot of things going for it. The website is so easy to use. It is free to use for the most part, and It has a ton of very useful features such as a huge animation library, and a list premade scenes. It even has the ability to export in open poses format to use with stable diffusion, along with various other features.

Essentially what the website offers is a simple yet powerful online 3D posing tool that lets you create 3D scenes for reference with its extensive list of high-quality poses and presets, as well as a huge animation library jam-packed with tools and features to allow you to create as close of a reference as you want to match your vision.

How to use:

/// To start using the platform, you don’t even need to open an account. Head to app.posemy.art and Click “Open PoseMyArt”. You should see the PoseMyArt editor. 

The Interface:

The interface is fairly straightforward. You have your character in the middle, and the light source is the yellow arrows at the top. You can adjust any object parameters by selecting it. Which will make its properties available at the bottom left of the screen. 

On the top left, you have multiple buttons. From the left to right you have:

  1. “Add Model”, where you can add any number of characters to your workspace. There is here an extensive list of mannequins and different characters that come  in all sizes and shapes, like Zombies/Aliens, Teens, Males/Females, Skinny, muscular, realistic, and even skeleton models.

  1. Add Props. Even though PoseMy.Art is mainly for characters, you have here a library of simple props that you can take advantage of to add to your scene. You have your basic shapes, like a cube or a sphere, but you also have different furniture, guns, kitchen appliances, and so on. And if someone asks, what am I going to do with that? Just remember, you can put a dancing skeleton inside a pot! Do I have to say more!? Now you might say I would never neeed a reference for that, but the fact is you never know. All am saying is the possibilities are endless.
  1. Premade Scenes where everything is set up for you. You can, of course, use these as is, or you can adjust everything about the scene to make it work for you. I like this because it gives you a basis to start from firstly. And secondly, it showcases what you can achieve with this tool.

  1. Add Image: Additionally, you can import images to your scene. This is a great way to drop a reference image. But wait! Why do you need a reference image in software that allows you to generate reference images?! Makes you go, “hmmmm.” Jokes aside, this is a great way to quickly get a frame from a video or a movie to match the pose effortlessly. Although I think they should add Wireframe mode.
  1. Next is the “Screenshot Button”. This one screenshots everything in your scene from the point of view of the camera.

  1. Lock Camera: is for locking and unlocking your camera position. When this option is clicked, you can’t change your viewport camera.
  1. Camera Position: which is this Camera with the plus Icon for saving all your camera positions for easy access. Having multiple camera positions to switch between them will help you a lot when conceptualizing your reference.
  1. Lastly, there is the new Export option. Here, you can export your scene from the POV of the camera. But the difference between this and the screenshot option is that you can specify additional export passes compatible with stable diffusion: Open Pose, Depth, Canny, Normals, or just regular images. In addition to the ability to specify the resolution of your exported image.

For workspace navigation, you can use the middle mouse button for zooming in and out, left-click for rotating the view, and right-click for panning.

On the bottom left, you’ll get a list of all the objects in the scene. Clicking either will show a list of parameters specific to the selected object. For example, if I selected my character here, I would get multiple options, like Apply Animation, Move, Rotate, Scale— a really neat feature that allows you to flip the character from side to side and change the model. So, if you like the pose, but you want to try a different character, you can totally make it happen! Now, you can also use the “save and load pose feature” to save your favorite poses and apply them on your future projects, and not to forget the “Hand Pose” feature, which allows you to control the right and left hand and apply different hand gestures like throwing and object, Boxing, Clapping, Hitchhiking, Hand on waist.  However, the Hand Pose will only affect the hand and not the whole arm.

Last, on the top right, you can adjust some settings and save or load your saved scenes. 

Back to the animation tab, there are a staggering more than 2400+ animations, divided into many categories like Adventure, Combat, Dance, Fantasy, Sport, and so on. All these animations can be applied to any character. You can also enable In-Place animation, and you have even an option to mirror the animation.

Next to the Animation Tab, you have the New Poses tab where you can easily apply all kinds of poses with one click to your character. Here, there are more than 100+ poses divided into categories like Dynamic, Emotions, Lying, Sitting, Standing…etc.

Pricing:

Now for Pricing, the platform does offer a premium subscription at $9.99 per month or a one-time payment of $99.99 for a lifetime membership. The premium subscription will allow unlimited usage and access to props, the ability to add images and custom props, as well as the option to save and load scenes in addition to other things. However, the free subscription is more than enough to work with the platform. 

Conclusion:

The app is also compatible with all devices, so you can use it on any PC as well as on your phone or tablet. One of the most interesting usage of this tool is people using their posed character to generate epic artwork with stable diffusion, and it works shockingly well. So, if you find this interesting and you want to try PoseMy.Art for free, you can click the link right here.
