I just received my drawing figures on New Years Eve and they are exactly what I was hoping for! I ordered two each of the male and female figures in gray so that I could make compositions for illustrating a fantasy novel I am working writing. They are small, but that is what I wanted as they don’t take up a lot of space. Best of all, they are the perfect size for my Breyer model horses, which should help me draw better proportioned horse and rider scenes and one of the main reasons I wanted to get these. The figures come with a variety of accessories and changeable hands. Be careful when removing the hands from their original packing. I gently took them off using a sideways motion and had no issues. Just be patient They also come with a stand that is adjustable and movable, so the figures can be held in a variety of positions. They can also stand alone, depending upon the position. While I prefer to draw by hand, they can be scanned using your smartphone to create your character in photoshop or illustrator. If you are looking to order these figures, definitely order them from Aeternis. Their customer service is excellent! My original shipment was lost, but Don, the founder replied to all of my inquiries within hours and arranged for a reshipment which arrived in perfect condition and within three weeks. So you can order these with confidence from Aeternis
The Male figure is really good in terms of the joints and everything, however the female figure's hand are very loose. They took a very long time to arrive, however this is due to international shipping issues. The packaging was also very beat up, but i assume this was also a shipping problem. IMPORTANT ISSUE: Make sure when taking off the extra hands to be very careful. I would twist back and forth and pull lightly because i had a couple of the pegs for the plastic holding all the hands snap off and get stuck inside the hand when taking them off. This doesn't necessarily destroy the hand, but its nearly impossible to pull out and very frustrating. Some extra hands actually came already snapped off, but most of the pegs were fine and pulled off fine. I do, however, believe that this issue was mainly due to SHIPPING problems and the box being mishandled, as i haven't seen much else relating to it, and my box was in pretty bad condition. If anyone else gets this problem, especially with a normal box, please leave a review. Overall good figures for posing despite the looseness on the female figure. Just be prepared for your package to be mishandled, especially if you are ordering during the pandemic with all the shipping delays and such, and take the hands off the pegs with caution.
It is such a great help in learning anatomy and helping me with poses. It’s a bit smaller than I thought it would be so it makes it a little hard to use at times, but otherwise I love using it and anytime I want to do full body poses I break them out!
I was very pleased with this product! No more endless searching online for the perfect reference picture. I can now do couple art as well. This makes everything so much easier. The only downside is it is shipping from China, and took roughly a month to finish going through customs and being delivered. The trip was bumpy as well, and the male figure’s left arm had popped off. Thankfully its meant to be removed and could be popped back on. If you don’t mind a wait though its a very good product!
The male figure is just about perfect but the female figure's limbs fall off really easily.
