Male ecorche

Male ecorche is an excellent aid in anatomy studies for artists and the very first model we uploaded. Although it’s one of our most valuable assets, you can always access it for free.

Female ecorche

Finally, there’s a female ecorche! In the golden age of ecorche-making, the male was the focal point of art. We created a 3D model of a female ecorche – now available for subscribers on 3D Reference Tool!

Visible from any angle

Ever found the perfect image just to realize there are no references of the same posture from a different angle? 3D REF has 3D anatomy references for artists, which you can view from any angle and zoom in on the smallest details.

Anatomy reference for artists

All our 3D anatomy references are made with artists in mind. We don’t include excess information in our models, focusing on explaining the surface forms – so they’re helpful references when creating your art.

Anatomy for animators

Anatomy for animators is challenging to demonstrate using static media, so we’ve added animations to 3D REF. The anatomy for animators section illustrates the changes in surface forms during various movements.
