CGTrader partners with the Women In VR Facebook group for #WomenIn3D initiative.
CGTrader has partnered with the Women in VR/AR Facebook group to bring more awareness of how women are represented in the 3D industry, and are calling on all designers to create and upload more female characters to CGTrader.
According to the communications team at CGTrader there are almost 25% more male 3D models available for developers to use on the CGTrader platform. Even with the female models available, over 20% are adult content – ten times the percentage of male models (2%).
CGTrader believes the demand for non-sexualized female models is growing and related to the rise of VR, where at least 40% of users are female. CGTrader has started a initative along with the Women In VR Facebook group in order to address these issues.
The Female Character challenge is open to all designers, no matter their field: both high poly and low poly models can enter the competition.
Submit your female model to the corresponding category:
- Realistic character (regular women, historical figures, girls, etc., representing various professions, including everyday people)
- Imaginary character (sci-fi, cartoon, fantasy, stylized, etc.)
Submissions deemed to be adult content are not eligible to participate in the contest.
Share your submissions to the challenge and other favorite 3D models of females on social media by adding #womenin3D #cgwoman and help us bring more awareness and inclusiveness to the 3D world!
