Surprise your friends by becoming an excellent artist just like that.
Artist's Eye is utility that helps you to draw or paint with real pen or pencil to paper or canvas.
Choose model picture (e.g. photo) and while you draw watch your drawing through the phone or tablet (that need to have camera).
Model will be shown semi-transparent on the top of your ongoing drawing helping you to outline the contours. A bit same way as with camera lucida already hundreds of years ago ( ).
It is best if you can attach phone to some kind of support stand so that it stays still and both hands are free.
This is not cheating but a new way of working and learning as well.

This app got Honorable Mention in the Most Innovative App category in Best App Ever Awards 2013 ( ).

    It does exactly what its supposed to. I liked it and will keep on using it. A bit more functionality and flexibility would be nice, like being able to rotate the image so you can view it in portrait mode, and also so you can rotate the phone180 degrees so the phone can sit on the artist's left hand side instead of just the right. It would also be very handy if the zoom control was easier to get to

    This is a great straight forward app with no hassles. However, there is no version for the Amazon Fire version of Android. How about it?

    I'll try this review again. I got this for my mother, the artist. She paints from photographs in her art class and doesn't do well with proportions in her work. This app works GREAT on my older tablet, but not on my Galaxy S4 phone. It's easy to figure out ways to support a phone (such as on a cardboard box on its side with a hole for the camera), but will take quite a bit of ingenuity, which

    Absolutely the best drawing app, especially as it allows you to zoom in on small detail

    Just what I needed for thumbnailing digitally and going to paper for a nice tactile finish. Plus I get the power to refine my proportions on my phone, then draw at a large scale in my sketchbook.
