"Now everyone can channel their inner Dutch master with the LUCY drawing tool."
Michael Borys, Boing Boing
"The LUCY will make you feel like you have special abilities by letting you look at two things at once – and have them converge in the same spot for you to draw on top of."
Eugene Conway, Dublin Ireland
“The LUCY Drawing Tool opens up a whole new world of possibilities. This instrument, requires a degree of patience and skill which rewards with truly amazing results which are genuinely astounding. The LUCY reduces the time it takes to measure a subject thus enabling rapid progress for the artist.”
HOW DOES THE LUCY WORK?
The LUCY uses a series of optical mirrors to place a live image of your subjectonto your drawing paper!
The LUCY is an improved version of the classic camera lucida. Watch the 85 second video below to learn more about how it works.
ENLARGE Photos with Your LUCY!
The Photo Enlarger is an optional accessory for the LUCY that allows you to enlarge photos, pictures or small objects using your LUCY up to 4x enlargement for the LUCY pro and 3x enlargement for LUCY flex.
LUCY pro vs. LUCY flex
You may be thinking, besides the cost, what is the difference between the two LUCY models? Well, the biggest difference is the size of the image. The LUCY pro’s image goes up to 20×37 inches, while the LUCY flex has an image of 19×27 inches, which is still large, just not as large as the LUCY pro.
Along with the size of the image, the LUCY pro also has a larger magnification when enlarging photos with the Photo Enlarger: up to 4x enlargement for the LUCY pro, and 3x enlargement for LUCY flex.
The LUCY pro is also just nicer in all aspects as you might expect from the cost difference and the way they look. It is supported by a solid mechanical arm that is steadied by a second diagonal cross support arm, which gives you the most stable image possible.
Most people get the LUCY flex because it is a great deal for what you get and the added flexibility of being able to use it while standing, sitting or at an easel. But if you want the absolute best, or you need the larger image, then get the LUCY pro.
