You know those wooden mannequins you find in art supply stores that are supposed to be used as reference for poses?
I've always thought it'd be nice to have one but at the same time i never wanted to spend my money on them. every time i'm in the store thinking about buying one i end up deciding against it because they miss a fair bit of motion that a real body has and they honestly aren't really all that great as far as proportions go.
well problem solved! this guy has created a much better poseable mannequin than those wooden things for the same reasons that i always decided against buying them.
he's created different versions with proportions to match various age ranges as well as mannequins for dogs and cats so it isn't really a one size will have to do for all kind of thing.
he started this kickstarter to help him be able to produce enough to actually get them into stores and i think they deserve to be there instead of just letting the terrible status quo mannequins remain the standard.
check out his kickstarter [Armature Nine Kickstarter] and help spread the word so he can get funded.
