Move Over, Wooden Artist’s Mannequin. There’s a New Model in Town!

Dubbed as ‘The World’s Most Poseable Freestanding Human Figure’, Stickybones is a product by husband and wife and stop-motion film animators Erik Baker and Lauren Wells Baker, made to make illustrating and animating dynamic posing incredibly easier! The product is live on Indiegogo for pre-order and has reached its crowdfunding goal of $85,000 in just ten hours; and now it’s at more or less 300% of its original goal.

 

 

An improved version of the traditional artist’s model which is made of wood, the Stickybones super-poseable human figure is made of industrial strength materials with interlocking parts with pre-tensioned, snap-to-fit ball and sockets. It has magnetic pellets on its hands and feet that allow the figure stand freely on a metal plate without support. It also allows for more dynamic posing with the help of a high precision, patent-pending joint system.

Stickybones has been engineered to withstand anything your imagination throws its way… It can hit the most expressive poses quickly and easily. Drawers, painters, sculptors and photographers can all push their art further by exploring many poses and expressions quickly before committing to one,” said Erik Baker.

Even if you aren’t an animator, just an artist who wants to make traditional and digital drawing easier, Stickybones is for you!
