Create various face and clothing variations inside a single file, then export every variations in one click.
Various templates available, and every future content updates will be available for free.
Create your own custom templates for a truly unique character design (coming soon).

Early Access

Mannequin is currently in development, which means that some of the features are still incomplete and/or unpolished. By making it available now through early access, we're hoping to gather as much input as possible from end users regarding how well it integrates to their workflow. If you're still unsure about supporting this project and wanted more info before deciding, you can try out the Lite (free) version below!

For Mac users, the only way to install Mannequin  for now is via the itch.io desktop app. Furthermore, the Mannequin app is not signed and/or notarized yet, so you might find it incompatible with macOS 10.15 with the Gatekeeper enabled (which is the default settings).
