Title: Environment: Notre Dame - 3d
Name: Luciano Neves
Country: Brasil
Software: 3d Studio Max 6

I try to do like a Cathedral of Notre Dame from Paris but I can't to do exactly the same because I have just a little reference photos. The Cathedral of Notre Dame from Paris was built in 1163 of Gothic style.I made the 3D inspired in your wonderful style... between other things.

I hope you like that images and feel free to be critic ;-)

Nice and with very good details!

Is it supose to lean?

08 August 2004, 10:10 AM
Great job on modelling and texturing! I especially like the high amount of detail you've put in that model. :thumbsup:

The only two things that I noticed are that the perspective of the cathedral doesn't seem to fit the perspective of the buildings located at the border of you image. And the shadow direction on the cathedral seems to be slightly different than the shadows casted by the people standing in front of it.

Again Luciano, you rock ! WO :bounce: OW

Wonderful work, and details are amazing. Congratulation.


08 August 2004, 10:51 AM
I was never there, but i believe THIS IS IT!

08 August 2004, 11:03 AM
Well done: )
Man...You are really good!

08 August 2004, 01:52 PM
The model is very detailed, and the textures great, but you need to fix the perspective. Create a dense grid in layout, put it at ground level, put the camera at viewers level (lets say 1.7 meters) and try to match the ground grid with the pavement lines. You may already did that, but it doesn't quite look right yet. Also i think it needs some color correction, especially in the shadows. But thats just my nitpicking. :)

edit: Saying to put the camera at viewer's level, requires of course that you did the model in 1/1 scale. You could probably find the dimensions of the church somewhere on the net.

this link you can see more images of Notre Dame: (

Great Work !!!
E ai Luciano. Cara acho que vc tem um ótimo modelo, mas a primeira composição não está valorizando muito seu trabalho ... bom não sei como a catedral é de verdade, mas ela está muito inclinada para a direita, e isso acaba tornando a imagem um pouco estranha ...

Para mim, essas imagens do arquivo "all.jpg " estão bem melhores ... talvez se vc fizer uma composição nova usando umas dessas vistas, mas com as cores da imagem da esquerda abaixo, ficaria perfeito. Mas claro isso é gosto pessoal.

08 August 2004, 04:28 PM
the cathedral itself seems a bit bright compared to the rest of the image. in itself it looks fine, but i think the image may have been washed out, so you might want to adjust the cathedral itself.

that said, this is a wonderful model! i'm tempted to print this out and show it to the art history professors here at CU.

08 August 2004, 05:49 PM
Awesome stuff , I thought for a while thar the first pic was a reference .


08 August 2004, 05:52 PM

Probably the best building model I´ve ever seen :thumbsup: Incredible detail... how many polys did u used here (1 billion? ;))

08 August 2004, 06:40 PM
you must show us your wireframe budy. Or else tonz of ppl will suspect that is a photograph.

08 August 2004, 06:54 PM
Great work, very nicely lit, gives the feeling of a real photo from the high contrast.

Perspective really needs fixing though, I find the lines along the side of the door and the top of the door really off-putting - they should be going up from the door, not down... Hope that's explained ok.

08 August 2004, 09:24 PM
Beautiful model and very nice textures!

08 August 2004, 09:27 PM
Photorealism at its finest.

08 August 2004, 11:39 PM
Thanks, later I will put one real photo here.:thumbsup:

08 August 2004, 12:11 AM

here we have one reference of sun light

08 August 2004, 04:17 PM
You must have no life! That must have taken forever to model!

I've been there. You've got too much orange in the actual model from the looks of things. This is actually a white/gray stone. The orange in the photos is from the sun. Make sure it's not in the model.

This would actually be a good project for SSS. The stone is slightly translucent. Enough so that the light scatters internal to the material. That would help explain why in the evening sun it would scatter the orange light and become more orange.

I have some really high res images of ND at home. I'll try to upload them later for your reference.

08 August 2004, 08:09 PM
Wow! The amount of details is just incredible. How long did it take to model the cathedral?


08 August 2004, 09:40 PM
That is insane detail! This deserves front page! 5 stars from me.*****

08 August 2004, 11:22 PM
Hi friends here we can see the sun light that I taked..... original photos from Paris (Notre Dame).

08 August 2004, 12:05 AM
Here is a page of some smaller sized ref pics of inside and out. PM'ed you about the high rez if you want em!

Note that the last pic shows more of the TRUE color of Notre Dame. It's white. It's the light that makes it orange.

Oh, and if you go back about 10 years... It was black! Paris is a much cleaner city now. The Seine still stinks, but the rest of the city is spotless.

I wish I would have a computer powerfull enough to model all that detail.

Great work man !

mama svae my soul

08 August 2004, 09:09 PM
When i was downloading the first image i thought i was the reference. After a few seconds i realised that was the 3d render :). Amazin work, the textures are from the original photos or you made new ones? How many days you work on that project?
it is a 5 star and must be in front page.
Great work !!!

08 August 2004, 04:57 PM
Just Wooow, wonderful i know how hard it is to make good models like that. Your a master at your art. The texturing is awsome, just perfect. I bet it took you a while to Render the whole scene.

Did you go for completly NURBS or did you included Polys to all of this ?


08 August 2004, 05:32 AM
wow! great job,it looks like a real photo.the model is so elaborate,the texture is good too. :thumbsup:

08 August 2004, 02:25 PM
Hey friends

I made that model of Notre Dame sometimes the Splines with the Modifier Bevel Profile and sometime I converted that model in Editable Poly to can more details.


08 August 2004, 02:40 PM
!! when i see for first time i think that the Notre Dame its real :eek::eek:

08 August 2004, 06:30 PM

08 August 2004, 11:53 PM

08 August 2004, 03:54 PM
