3D modelling is a man’s world I think. Anyone here to prove me wrong?
no. infact i think i proved u right in an earlier post.
Well last time I looked I was female, but that might have changed since I woke up this morning.
I have been 3D modeling for over 3 years, the last 2 with blender.
And while I think 3d modeling is still geared for the male mentality, I don’t let it stop me.
Does that answer your question?
I’m whatever you want me to be
and? Did you change?
I mean, after visiting that fate thread, one cannot be sure of anything anymore
Nope, just checked, still female. My fiance will be so relieved.
Hey I’m a girl too. I’ve been using Blender since the end of the C-Key era, I don’t remember how long ago that was… I think that 3D in itself is great for girls or guys, but the community is very male-oriented… I guess I like 3D because it appeals to my logical/mathematical side as well as my creative/artistic side. I see no reason why being a girl should stop anyone from doing 3D…
hey, did I have a point? I don’t remember… I can’t think of anything else to say… oh well… I’d better stop talking now… goes to sleep
Me Girl, Kib_Tph, scare me!
I don’t know either. Why there are so few women? This forum isn’t geared toward males, the whole industry is male dominated. I have artist girl friends who just don’t find the computer interesting?? I’ve tried to get them interested??? :-? Also, as an example, my nephews love Blender, my daughter is not interested, except to play the games created on it. My son loves to watch me, but is a little too young to do anything yet (6) but I wouldn’t be surprised if he starts soon on his own.
All I can say is that I’ve always “hung out” with the guys and found women to be annoying, LOL. And I find the same is true for my fellow co-workers (we’re in a male dominated field too). So it might just be that it only appeals to a certain kind of female?
I’m happily married and otherwise “normal”, er… I think… naw, come to think of it, I’m not the least bit normal and totally a black sheep in my family…
So what’s the answer? Has anyone else tried to recruit females? What happened?
Interesting situation, eh?
hee hee, I like these happy faces
Ingiebee… I don’t know why Kib would scare you…
I like the fact that he’ll be anything you want him to be…
Not that I’ve tested that theory… I swear… even tho a hole is a hole is a…
Actually my 9 year old daughter is already interested in animation. She creates animations in a Disney program I have loaded on an old laptop for her. And here last week she expressed interest in blender so I loaded it on her laptop and gave her the Tutorial Book #1. She is currently figuring out keys and what they do.
I think it has a little to do with how young you introduce them to the possibilty. (LOL although that sure as heck doesn’t explain me.)
Oh, I always thought that my cousins, boys, had the best toys, so when my daughter was a tot, I got her some super cool construction equipment stuff, and… she never touched them!
I think it’s the throw of the dice. I sure hope my son likes working on cars, carpentry and sailing along with his seeming interest in art and Blender. And I sure hope my baby daughter is going to love dolls (my older one says my dolls “freak her out”)
Boy howdy! I love that girl, but we have practically nothing in common!!!
What does one do? LOL
P.S. looks like you got lucky!!!
I notice that on CG Talk as well (few Females) and that is a much larger community than this one. Computers in general seem to be a male-dominated world (for some reason).
No wonder most of the CG characters are girls! Not many guys want to stare at another guy for hours on end!
Actually I am very lucky, even though my daughter is definitly her own person, she enjoys alot of the same things I do.
drawing, reading, computers, modeling, animation, etc…
On the other hand, my 12 year old son often times seems like an alien. Most the time I don’t understand him at all. (LOL, lately he seems like an alien with a very bad attitude)
It’s because he’s morphing into the dreaded teenager!! :o
