Draw like the masters!

AR Lucida is the perfect drawing app for new and seasoned artists! AR Lucida isn't just some drawing app where you draw on your screen, it is an app that allows you to create REAL beautiful pictures!

For thousands of years artists have used devices to help superimpose a real image on a piece of paper, essentially allowing them to trace it. This has allowed them to create beautiful life-like paintings and drawings.

The AR Lucida app does the same, except with your phone or tablet. AR Lucida uses an image on your device, and superimposes it over a live view of your camera. This allows you to see your hand AND the image while you are drawing!

Along with superimposing the image, AR Lucida lets you add a variety of different filters to assist you in drawing. It also allows you to change image opacity, rotation and size.

To use it, simply open the app, select an image, position it, and click draw! From there you can change the opacity, add a filter, turn on the flashlight to light up your drawing area, or start over with a new picture! The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.

Whether you are a new artist, professional artist, or even a baker, AR Lucida is for you! The AR Lucida app makes a great addition to any artist's toolbox.

IMPORTANT: To use AR Lucida, you need to fix your device in place above your drawing. We use a stack of books or a flower vase to do this, but you are free to make your own contraption! See for more.
