I think this post would go here in the reference spot as the program I am refering to is version of Poser for artists which I think is for reference purposes.
This question is for any one who has it or has tried it.
What I would like to know is if it is worth the money or should I just purchas a full version of poser.
Is this version just a shortened version of the full version.Does it have any thing better(for the 2d artist I mean) than the other versions.
Any thing else you can think of would be handy aswell before I buy one of them.
Has no body heard of or used this program???
Does any one know where I could find out a little more about it??

Thank you for the reply Ronin.
I havnt heard about a special version for artists. :/
Ive have Poser 3 (is it up to number 5 now?). The Poser gets better and better all the time, and theres plug-ins for even better bodies and stuff, hair seems to faschinate people very much:
However I think the poser program in general is a bit "stiff" and cannot be used so good for references, except of maybe rough drafts for poses. When it comes to more lively things, the posermodel, well its a manikin of sorts. It lacks "life" its very stiff.
I sometimes use it for templates though - U can make one pose and turn it, that makes a good template of the same guy in different angle.
I would go for a digital camera and a friend instead of Poser for references...

I have to agree that the Poser output is a bit stiff. Frankly, Poser is a complex toy. It's more trouble for artists that it's worth, considering the time needed to learn the program and then manipulate a very static mannequin into a correct pose. And, since the program doesn't simulate weight-bearing in the figure, the poses all look like the model is hovering in place. When a person just stands there, they sag a bit under gravity and assume a natural pose. The program doesn't address this, so I think it's useless even as a guide.
Learning to draw the figure is a far better use of your time.
