Create a “personalized sketch doll” and make it pose!
Design Doll is a software program that can freely manipulate human body models in 3D space.
A completely new, next generation sketch doll
This will support your life as an artist
To the maximum effect
A myriad functions prepared for artists
Design Doll can create postures and compositions that artists demand, with easy, intuitive operations.
Most of the built-in functions are based on requests from our customers
Reproduce your favorite head to body ratios
Design Doll uses a blending method, where forms and sizes of various parts to be changed freely, allowing models to be reproduced with head to body ratios that intuitively suit the drawing
Reproduce any perspective at will
With various perspective functions, deformations resembling hand drawings or emphatic expressions that cannot be represented with other 3D software are possible. Along with parallel projection, false perspectives, real perspectives and lens perspectives, functions such as eye level displays and change of camera perspective (viewing angle) are also available
A dedicated controller for moving fingers minutely has been made available. By creating the rough shape in simple mode, then moving on to detailed mode, hand shapes can be created quickly
Create multiple figure portrayals with ease
Design Doll can set multiple body models within the same scene, allowing complex compositions in which sketches tend go askew to be drawn easily. By observing from every angle, the breadth of possible expressions is increased
Build your own pose collection
Data you create can be used repeatedly, reducing creation time, by simply dragging pose and body shape icons onto new models.
Manage with fewer controllers
In pursuit of pose creation speed, Design Doll is designed to manage postures with minimal controllers. Minute adjustments can even be made by directly dragging points on the 3D models.
Import external 3D models
With its bone adherence function, Design Doll can link items created with external software to specific parts. No need to go through bothersome processes such as fitting a sword to a hand after deciding on a posture
Design Doll can create in-between faces and body shapes, by synthesizing the difference between two existing models into one new model. By repeatedly synthesizing, growth process of a character can be created easily
Share poses and models
Used together with the pose and model sharing website “Doll-Atelier
Design Doll users can share designs to be used freely for anything, commercial or non-commercial
A myriad of effectss
Design Doll can apply pre-set or customized effects with a single click. By setting-up effects that suit you, you can focus more attention on the relationship between your models and their environment
Free from perspective lines
By creating box shaped items along grids, Design Doll eliminates the bothersome task of drawing perspective lines
Paint directly on models
Painting directly onto 3D models has now become possible. By drawing auxiliary lines such as the location of eyes or hairlines onto each character, you can create personalized sketch dolls, in a manner which is difficult with actual sketch dolls
Shadow and shade reference
With Design Doll, you can freely set light sources to create your envisioned image. Since this fosters greater comprehension of three-dimensional objects, it is an optimal tool for illustration practice as well

More impact with false perspective function
When using viewing angle adjustments for impact, your degree of freedom within the composition is limited, and the results often don’t feel right. By using Design Doll’s “false perspective function”, you can easily and freely make perspective distortions to attain a natural fit for your artistic vision
- Specific parts can be emphasized
- Because the false perspective function uses camera manipulations, there is no need to re-edit the head to body ratio of the model or the pose
Softening tools that help create a hand-made feel
The camera perspective functions of Design Doll are ideal for creating “compositions with a natural, hand-drawn feel” instead of the computer-generated feel of other 3D programs. We know you’ll enjoy this convenient function that brings your compositions closer to the images seen by the naked eye, while maintaining the integrity of your illustrative vision.
- Real perspectives that can adjust to natural curves
- Lens perspectives that can reproduce wide-angle and fish-eye lens effects
- Eye level or camera height display functions
Unlimited usage of a huge volume of poses and models
You can download any poses and models uploaded onto the user website “Doll-Atelier”
- Import your favorite poses from the website with a single click
- Significantly reduce model creation time by synthesizing pre-set data and creating elements from it
- Imported poses can be used freely, for commercial or non-commercial applications
And there are many more convenient functions!
