View Full Version : Louvre 1622, Tchook (3D)

09 September 2004, 10:15 AM (

Title: Louvre 1622
Name: Tchook
Country: France
Software: Arnold, Maya, Photoshop

Hi guys long time no see
this is le louvre in 1622 based on T.G.H hoffbauer's work and some painting in le "musee carnavalet" (jean baptiste Raguenet, Reinier Nooms etc...)
I began with basic shapes (cubes/ cylinder) to find a good framing, then came a lot of extrude work, then uvs.
the final work is done with photoshop

hope you enjoy it

Must have took a long time to create.

I like your idea of using simple shapes to find a good compositiion.

thx everyone
it take me like 2 or 3 weeks do do it ...its quite a long time but i m still learning maya so

i will put a hd version of it on my website in a day or 2

for those who like it here are some detail from a 3k version.

09 September 2004, 08:12 AM
and an another detail

09 September 2004, 08:13 AM
and a last one

09 September 2004, 09:19 AM
Very impressive work!!!, i love the mood and the balance between the rainy clouds passing by and the sun rays that come through them, it gives it a sense of movement to the scene,and the lighting is pretty accurate too since it gives a relly good sense of volume to the building.And bring the foreground and background together.
I was just wondering if the water is made with the fluid effects on Maya,i've been trying to achieve a good water texture but it always looks kind of fake when i use the fluid effects,so could you please tell me how you achieved it ?. Also, did you create you model using NURBS and polis or is it just polis for the entire scene.


09 September 2004, 12:40 PM
thx everyone
for the water, its (only) a custom shader , with a fractal noise tweak in photoshop.
and there is no nurbs to model this ( i still dont understand nurbs, they seem to have
a mind of there own)
as i said previously its only very basic poly shapes with a lot of extrude

09 September 2004, 02:50 PM
Amazing! Everything about this is great! Keep up the good work.

09 September 2004, 12:13 PM
Beautiful work. I love the muted colors and how they balance each other out. Are the clouds painted?

09 September 2004, 01:59 PM

09 September 2004, 09:50 AM
Localisation, Asnieres!! ahahah trop drole,
bon ces quelques mots pour te dire que ton visuels évidements mais des claques "aïh, aïh"
Moi j'adore le Louvre et cette vision est vraiment super, tu t'est inspirer d'un tableaux type, ou tu à crée l'angle de vu?
Ont dirais à en voir la facture qu'il y a un gros travail de peinture sur photoshop, peut tu donner le format et le temps passé
sur ce visuel, je suis très intéressé par le matte, ce un milieu est pas trop fermé.
Mais encore bravo.....

09 September 2004, 10:14 AM
Merci (tres jolie chat par ailleur)
je suis partie d une vue de tgh hoffbauer qui ressemble plus a ca

Apres j ai fais bouger la cam pour trouver un cadrage qui me plaise
Sinon jai ete chercher des ref au musee carnavalet et au louvre.
J ai du passer 3 semaines dessus dont 1 semaine de photoshop mais vu que
j avais un "vrai" travail je sais pas trop.
c est du 3k (3056 X 1528).


09 September 2004, 10:29 AM
Merci pour les infos, et bon courage pour d'autres matte......
Aussi terrifiant.......

11 November 2004, 11:55 AM
What is Arnold software?

04 April 2005, 07:49 AM
Obviously the companion to Louvre By Night this, for me, is just as good. I love the detail of the models and the sheer threat of the impending weather. The foreground too has been expertly handled and the whole scene is full and very tense. Fabulous stuff.:applause:

Yeah , the work very great !
the model , the textrue and the light are all very great !
