I know one who is up and coming. She is amazing and i'm sure you will see her thunderdome pic soon. I wouldn't be surprised to see her on the cover page one day. I think she is registering here soon so she can speak for herself.
They're rare, but they DO exist. We have a few on this forum, but some of them just choose to keep their genders anonymous. I'd be happy to PM you some female concept artist's names and emails in the industry. I'm sure they wouldn't mind saying hi and sharing some of their work and experiences with you.
PM is private message. It's like email, but only on the forum. Every member gets an account. Just go on the main page of the message boards (http://www.conceptart.org/forums/) and scroll to the bottom. Look for the Private Message heading in bold letters. click on that and you access your PM account. Cheers!

Haha, I didn't know that...I think I'll reverse that theory...to find the babes, I just have to go look for great female artists. Easy enough.
*walks away to look for female artists*
Hi Eshara, im a gurl and an artist for a software developer. i was wondering the same thing, kewl to see there are others around. i have an old webpage full of old stuff (cant seem to get in to update it ), im working on setting up a real site soon. have a look see www.rubygenesis.filetap.com
OH!! We have another sexy kitten who has join up.. None other than RubyGenesis. Ohhh.. an English gal, eh? Boy, you got to love those english accents...:hearts:
Oh my.? and she can draw better than I! Wooh! This is love at first sight, boys!
We are told so often to use the search tool instead of spamming the forum with the same topics over and over that I couldn't resist reviving this decaying corpse of a topic.
Actually I was wondering what was the male to female ration on this board. Are females so few or is it just that we don't know who's male and female? I mean, my nick might not be obvious but my signature and avatar should be a cue (I really do look like that!), I get called 'dude' all the time in this board. People must think Chantal is some exotic scandinavian guy's name.
As for the industry, I know quite a few ladies who work in videogames or have worked in videogames. We were 4 out of 20 in my 3D class (and I was the only one who wanted to be in the videogame class, the others were reject from the cinema class and didn't know how to turn on a playstation.) Most girls I know in videogames came from traditional tv animation actually.
hey! this is a great Thread. I am always thinking about my place in these fields. I am wanting to do what I do because I love it , but I do get discouraged at times because it is hard to be the minority in any situation. I just keep doing it though because I love it and wouldn't want anything else.
One of my all time favorite artists is a women. She is from France and a kickass comic book artist. She has also done work for warner Bro. I think her work is just amazeing!!

Never figured out what gender had to do with art. Considering my age, I SHOULD be one of those misogynic assholes who thinks women are around in the art world just to pose and steal your coffee, but I'm not.
The artists I know personally that I respect have no obvious gender in their approach to art, and the females outnumber the males by a slight bit. Personally, I think it's a bit sad that any serious field would bias itself against anyone whose mind works the way it should within that field.

Your mother must be so proud...

When I'm posing and stealing the other artist's coffees, I sometimes splash some ink and paint on a canvas to expressed my tempestuous soul and inherent female emoness. Sometimes people even pay me. I'm hopefully doing animation at uni next year, and fully intend to steal coffee and pose with the best of them.
Merekat (sp?) from sijun.com
Amazing digital work...she works now for Valve if i remember well <_< could be wrong tho...also forget her real name...i firstly have seen work from her in a Art-magacine from Germany/Austria but i borrowed the mag to someone

Personally, I was never bothered by the skewed ratio of guys to gals in animation...more to pick from. j/k, happily engaged...I think there are just certain things guys and gals gravitate towards. In general, mind - there are always exceptions! Of course, my laissez-faire attitude probably has to do with the fact that I always got on easier with guys than gals...I'm sorry girls, but we are darn confusing!!
btw, I work for an animation company, and I think the work force is about 50/50. The times, they are a-changing...
hey do any of you girls live in NY?
I just moved here and I don't know a lot of people, especially girls. It would be nice to have some female energy around. PM me if any of you ladies are into hanging out.
I get called "dude" an awful lot around here too. I guess the name's sort of ambiguous and the vulture avatar looks a tad masculine, but vultures kick ass whether you have a penis or not.
I'm in a fine arts program and women outnumber men tremendously. I think my school's about 30% male, and most of them are taking design degrees. But when I'm around here, it seems pretty overwhelmingly male-dominated. Maybe it's because it's hard to determine gender online and everybody's mostly doing subjects that are things that men stereotypically do.
It's all good though. I like hanging out with guys, so it ought to work well.
