Hi Maru,

Thanks for your answer. It's very nice to hear that, sorry I took it that way, it's hard to realise the tone in writing. Yes, I totally agree we need to be clear about licencing, I saw you asked the same question to other people that shared free scenes on the forum and it's only fair.

Anyway, thank you for clarifying and for the kind words you said about the girls in the community. I'm a supporter of other girls in the field because they're very few and tend to have self-trust issues more than guys.

I'm always happy to share work with the community every time I can and try to be more active on the forum. This forum is absolutely vital for corona users and I always check here first whenever I need to create a new project and every time I have a technical problem.

Thanks
Cheers,
V

Communication over internet is hard... I recommend visiting some of the archviz conferences, you will see that almost everyone in the field is really nice person when you talk face to face. Additionally, Total Chaos had a panel with discussion about women in archviz, and I think there will be also one at this years siggraph.

Hi Juraj,

Quote: "Definitely continue to post, perseverance is most important, most people here can't tell stranger's gender and even the most interesting posts might not stir attention. You could post the most beautiful archviz work and some grumpy cat would come tell you "another building ? I would have liked more star wars ships". Just post away and don't give slightest fuck."

I like your spirit (lol)
You are describing quite accurately what's out there... I suppose I wasn't very aware of the situation on forums because it seemed to me people are still quite active, especially on the archvis ones... but yes, almost everyone seems to be self-centred on his own work and not caring about other people's work... it's also an oversaturation of images as more and more people are doing this, but it's normal, the number of people choosing a career in CGI (or related) will continue to increase because the population is increasing overall and also it becomes easier to use software, etc, we already know the reasons.   

I understand it's not necessarily a matter of gender but maybe you know the guy who owns CGarchitect, Jeff Mottle, he created "Women in ArchVis" group on fb and since it started we had quite a number of trolls posting stuff like "women shouldn't do this... because of various reasons (from biological differences between genders to professional incapabilities, etc) really upsetting stuff...and so on..." so... someone creates a group to encourage a certain segment of professionals and what you get is also a number of haters... so I was rather under the influence of haters... when I mentioned gender...

I'm sorry I'm out of topic again, maybe this message will be erased but I just meant to say thanks to Juraj for replying!

cheers

I know the series as articles on website, but didn't know it had FB group, that's new!

8 years ago, when I first went to SOA Academy Days in Venice, the most popular Archviz event, I swear I remember it correctly, there were 2-3 women attending out of 150 guests, including my studio co-partner (and now wife) Veronika. But as years went by, I would say solid 30perc. attending now are women. So it's not parity yet, but I would say much better than many technical industries. Archviz is unique blend of creativity and technical proves, but so is Architecture itself, and when I attended Architecture College in Prague (CVUT), 60perc. were women, so I believe it will not be long before it's much more than my guess-timated 30/70. (I know Jeff does industry questionaries, but this never reaches enough people).

I am never one for stereotyping but I would fully agree there definitely is currently a soft influence among many best women Archviz artists. Same timeframe, 8 years ago, Alfa Smyrna known as Pixela (she was also speaker at that first SOA event!) was respected to the same degree as Bertrand Benoit and Peter Guthrie were and not only was she as technical as Bertrand (that is achievement in itself) she did had that "soft touch" to renderings that was pointed to me back then by Veronika on example of her bedroom rendering, where (outside of perfect light, materials,et..) she also painted the wallpaper on wall, positioned blanket and coffee mug. Plus perfect technical knowledge, I remember seeing Bertrand asking her for BruteForce settings of Vray ( I remember all sort of odd stuff...rather perfect longterm memory, zero short term sadly).
This is the rendering I am talking about: https://forums.cgsociety.org/t/my-bedroom-design-alfa-smyrna-3d/1403992

6 years ago, Veronika and I worked on personal project of Parisian Bedroom. Back then, every bed looked super CGI but also boring, it wasn't paid any attention to. Veronika loves fabrics, sewing and knitting, so she tried to make that better, took her 10 days but the result was something different. And yeah, we had guys ask us (some former classmates from architectural school), why bother with something like bed ? But it proved revolutionary to our studio. Up to this day, we have clients who just come and ask for that messy bed. We literally wouldn't be where we currently are in business if Veronika didn't brought her unique perspective as woman.
( Awkward self-promo for illustrative purpose https://www.behance.net/gallery/7009863/White-Bedroom-MarvelousDesigner-tutorial-for-3dArtist )

If I were to start naming some super talented Archviz individuals, few women would easily come straight to my mind without much trying as well at least. Britta Wikholm, Lucia Frascerra,..in Lucia's work particularly you can see the soft influence, Nefeli Kallianou, Ewelina Lekka, etc.

I would say women definitely have solid foothold in the industry. Maybe not yet where it could be, but definitely on path there.
