OVERVIEW How many times have you been drawing a portrait for hours only to realize that the nose or the eye is in the wrong place? You can use Da Vinci Eye to layout artwork before you begin or even check your work as you progress. Having a hard time seeing where lights or darks go? Breakdown images into layers by color value. Then virtually project those layers on top of your image. You can see exactly where to place the darkest darks, mid-tones, and highlights. CAN'T THINK OF WHAT TO DRAW? Check out our inspiration section for user uploaded reference photos. If you have a great pic, you can even upload your own content for other artists to draw. LEARNING HOW TO DRAW? We have lessons using our unique patent-pending learning method. You can also turn ANY photo into a step by step shading drawing lesson. HOW DOES IT WORK? Based on a tool that has been used by artists for centuries, this app is a digital version of a Camera Lucida. You suspend your iPhone or iPad above or in front of your canvas with a stand, tall glass, or other objects easily found around your house. When you look through your phone, you will see both the image and the canvas simultaneously. It's similar in functionality to an art projector or light box, but with the ability to do so much more. You can draw on any surface, zoom in to draw micro details in your drawing, and you don't have to draw in the dark. WILL THIS HELP ME LEARN HOW TO DRAW? Using Da Vinci Eye, you will be training your eye to recognize proportions and draw with shading while training your hand to translate precise lines and strokes on paper. You’ll learn faster and more efficiently using our proven techniques compared to any other app. AR MODE REQUIREMENTS To use AR mode, you must have an A10x or A11 processor and above. We recommend using: – iPhone 8 and newer (iPhone 7 and below will not work) – iPad Mini 5th Generation and newer – iPad Air 2019 and newer – iPad Pro 3rd Gen (Any pro made after 2018) and newer AR & CLASSIC MODE AR mode anchors your image to an object in the real world. This lets you move your canvas or phone, and the drawing and projected image will stay aligned. Classic mode is like a normal art projector, where if you move your phone or canvas, the drawing will no longer be aligned. AR mode is especially useful for drawing or painting on an easel. However, in most cases, Classic mode will achieve the same result. TAKE YOUR DRAWING TO THE NEXT LEVEL Download Da Vinci Eye today! No one ever regretted sharpening their drawing skills.

    I just received it and haven’t gotten to draw much yet but what I have done just by holding my iPhone by hand is awesome and I can’t wait to get set up and really enjoy it.

    By LogicDrivesMyVoting
    Valuable tool for self-taught artists, for inspiration, and for seeing the works of others. Love this app.
  • Not Practical

    By DrGhaedi
    Unfortunately, there is no reliable way to shift the live camera view by 90 degrees henceforth limiting possibilities. IOS has started incorporating similar features natively fortunately.
  • Great

  • When it said “projector”, I assumed it would “project”. Silly me.

    I think, perhaps, with time and a ton of patience, I’ll get used to the “non-projector” method of super imposing a camera pic onto paper. I was looking for a light box and remembered this app. Sadly, I should have saved the $10 I used for this app and applied it to the light box. For me, drawing and my artwork, is a peaceful time. With this app, I spent most of my time wrestling with my phone, the app and the paper to make it fit correctly. It wasn’t at all what I had hoped for and I’m out 10 bucks. There really should be a trial period on this app. Live and learn, I guess.
