What can I use this for?
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 this app to layout your artwork before you begin or check your work as you go along.
Do you have a hard time recognizing where different color values 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?

For Business Owners:

Give anyone a professional hand-painted temporary tattoo.
The possibilities are endless!
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 lightbox, 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.
Does this help me learn 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.

AR Mode Requirements
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.
To use AR mode, you must have an A10x or A11 processor and above in your device. 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
