How will Écorché assistant help me?
Many people who tries to construct an écorché encounters annoying issues like:

- Flipping between several large scale anatomy books with one hand while at the same time trying to sculpt with the other hand.
- Carrying heavy reference material back and forth between the home and the studio.
- Texts saying one thing but the illustrations showing something else.
- Lack of consistency regarding the illustrations.
- Lack of necessary views of the bodyparts, bones, individual muscles, muscle layes, cross-sections etc.
- Takes too much time to find specific information like origin, insertion and action of individual muscles.
- To not know in which order to add the muscles.
- Anatomy texts written by people who never build an écorché themselves.

All these issues has been ELIMINATED WITH THIS APP!
