Representation matters. The World is not European. I’m sick of seeing white-washed product pages all over the place.
This post aims to highlight and bring attention to those 3D figures and characters that are not white, because diversity & inclusion matters, and the World is not European. Young 3D artists from around the World deserve to have access to products and see promotional images that are representative of themselves or their culture.
Unlike my other post which aims to highlight those characters and products that are anatomically correct, this post doesn’t care about that. What matter is if the character or figure is non-European. If you know of a figure or character for sale that is not European, please let me know by replying below or sending me a PM! I want this to be an open and collaborative effort.
Also, I can’t do this alone. There are simply too many products and too many marketplaces for one person to keep track of. So if you’d like to help out I’d greatly appreciate it! Feel free to PM me or reply with any contributions, suggestions, or corrections.
Last, this post is not aimed to be discriminatory or exclusatory in any way. It’s simply meant to highlight non-European characters for those artists looking for more diversity in their works. And hopefully to encourage a little more diversity in the 3D marketplace because quite frankly there’s many more flavors of ice cream other than vanilla.
Note: Non-human characters are not included.
Thanks to @bytescapes for the generous contributions!
