09 September 2004, 10:56 AM (

Title: Louvre1622-by-night
Name: Tchook
Country: France
Software: Arnold, Maya, Photoshop

This is another render of le louvre in 1622 but from a top view and with a weird early morning light
The historical background is as
fake as possible since i had no document showing
this area.
hope you enjoy it

dude how long does it take you? i think it will take me several years to develop this.

09 September 2004, 06:17 PM
seriously, great job. Love the details and lighting!

09 September 2004, 08:25 PM
ur details are awosome man:thumbsup: much time did it creat such a saga:)

09 September 2004, 08:31 PM
beau taff tchook,:thumbsup:
je savais pas que tu faisais de la 3d, en tous cas belle maitrise de la lumiere et de la compo.
Juste une ptite critique, le grain et le niveau de flou qui se détache entre le fond réel et la 3d.

09 September 2004, 09:44 PM
This is incredible! Only one thing bothers me a little bit (wich is typical for CG architectural renderings): the lack of life. It looks beautiful, but it also looks kinda "dead" to me. I would expect some horses and people in a scene like this. But otherwise it's absolutely stunning.

09 September 2004, 11:14 PM
:argh: this is really an astonishing amount of work!! but it is worth the results! :thumbsup: :applause: :buttrock:

09 September 2004, 12:36 AM

good job, u deserve a very good deal! :deal:

SALUT! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

09 September 2004, 06:54 AM
good lighting bob!! which is an image and which is modelled? but this is awesome

09 September 2004, 08:32 AM
thx everyone
m@lonet------> c est juste pour le fun pour mon vrai travail je fait ca (

HapZungLam-----> its 1 or 2 days of work for this one since i already have the modeling and texturing a lot of building you can check info on this thread

DAREONER---->Merci, ton site est tres tres bien (sp6 / zazie:thumbsup: ) le grain c est nimporte
quoi c est juste une couche d accroche pour les highlights, pour le flou....hmmmm je suis pas
convaincu mais vu que jai pas utilise de Z t as surement raison. Pour la 3 d j ai commence il y a
un an.

XTRA---->You are totally right this picture looks dead to me too, i try to fight the dead impression but since i draw character like 4 year old s quite a problem .

You can see the elemts i ve used in the attached file

Excellent work, very detailed

09 September 2004, 02:18 PM
very impressive work! a nice atmossphere in this pic!

09 September 2004, 02:20 PM

Really splendid work!! Congratulations! Can you take, some wire or shot from 3d, on board? It will be great if with wire be light and mega your description!;)

PS Sorry for my english language.



09 September 2004, 02:31 PM
very impressive :thumbsup:

09 September 2004, 02:31 PM
beautiful man!

I love the light emanating from the central square in the museum, and great compositing work!

software question: what is "arnold"?


09 September 2004, 02:58 PM
Beautiful stuff!

09 September 2004, 03:47 PM
What software do you mean with Arnold?

Beautiful Image! :)

09 September 2004, 03:48 PM
Beautiful image..

Even more excellent website... (I've never seen such well-done matte paintings, and I'm greatly impressed that you worked with Costa Gavras on 'Amen' !)

09 September 2004, 04:10 PM
wow.... dood. Well, I love it. It has amazing atmosphere. The light that reaches up the walls inside the courtyard area doesn't seem to have the rright falloff, in my opinion. Seems a little too bright. Excellent work though. You inspire me.

09 September 2004, 04:21 PM
Can´t understand why I have not seen any of your work before...your a great artist. Great detail and I like the mood you have in this pic, with the ligth and the reflections on Louvren.

fantastic work!

I´ll check your website more to go now.

09 September 2004, 04:23 PM
Wow? Best so far!

09 September 2004, 04:46 PM
Holy muffins!

Heavenly work man! Really. Awesome! :thumbsup:

09 September 2004, 04:49 PM
Great job:)
and so much detailes:scream:

09 September 2004, 04:56 PM
Whaaaa punaise ça déchire un max

congratulations (comme ça tout le monde comprend)

09 September 2004, 05:08 PM
c'est du beau travail, , mais je trouve que ton image ets beaucoup plus proche d'un rendu 3d synthese que d'un matte-painting, tes couleurs sont trop verdatres, le noir est trop fort ce qui enleve enormement de détails et de réalisme, pareil pour les teintes vertes, pour s'approcher plus d'un rendu réaliste (matte-painting) je conseilel un changement global des teintes et des lumiéres :p virant vers un mélange de violet, bleu d'outre mer, rouge ocre, blur, de mixer les effets layers dans photoshop pour que tu voies la différence.

ton rendu est trés bien comme la plupart de tes travaux que la plupart d'infographistes admirent(d'ont moi :p), mais quelques modifications au niveau des teintes ets a voir, je pense ;)

voila mon avis :p

bonne continuation

09 September 2004, 06:01 PM
j'm bien... just un detail me chagrine... une lumière matinale avec le soleil à l'ouest de la scène...
sinon bien, je ne suis pas capable de la moitié du tiers du quantième de ca8

09 September 2004, 09:24 PM
I'm new here
But this is realy crazy stuff, damm great job

09 September 2004, 10:04 PM
Nice matte..

The sky in the background seems a bit grainy compared to the foreground stuff..maybe if you mimic the noise/grain in the foreground it might blend together better

09 September 2004, 10:16 PM
Really nice! It really gives life to 16th century paris. Amazing details!
My only comment would be that the light in the courtyard appears really bright. Almost as if there's some 100watt lamps lighting the front :) And I believe they didn't have anything like this back then...

09 September 2004, 10:35 PM
:eek: wow thats amazing, very nice detail given, & agree with Thekkur..about lights
and yes english plz

Great work on the water and backround. Theyre my favorite part.

09 September 2004, 11:09 PM
Scene is wonderful. But, in my opinion, grainess of the sky spoils it a bit. And some sort of webbish crackles in the upper right part of the image (in the sky, just above the tower) hit my eye - just got confused a little while thinking what's this could be :)

09 September 2004, 03:55 AM
haha, I totally forgot about arnold,

cool stuff

09 September 2004, 05:16 AM
very beautiful lighting!
like it very much!

Mlkdesign--------->Yeah thx for checking wy website, Costa Gavras is one of my favorite director.

Imothep85-------> Ca n a jamais ete un matte painting, juste un moment de detente entre 2 mattes, je pense qu il ya plus de boulot que ce que tu decris pour le rendre "realiste".:beer:

jlef------->lol je sais.... si tu regarde bien certaines ombres sont inversees aussi.

J.Nieuwland--->You are right

Thekkur-------->Argh you got me....Yeah this thing bother me also, it is a real problem.
I ve tried to put the light in the building but it was worth, i try to put fire camps but

the image looked messy i am

Sagroth------> its a pattern i use to catch highlights, and i kinda like it....;)

a weird early morning light
hope you enjoy it Enjoy, yes! A great piece. I really like the river view you use in the 'making of' movie.

I hope you have some way of using these skills to earn a good living.

One point, though--The Louvre is on the north shore of the Sienne, so early morning light would be coming from the East--the right in your view, not the left. Or is that the moon behind the clouds?

11 November 2004, 09:32 PM
very nice...looks like a painting. CG artists don't get the respect they deserve :-(

I checked out your's just a bunch of jibberish... I wish it were in english.

Great work :thumbsup:

11 November 2004, 10:52 PM

Goodness me! This is astonishing! Everything about it - fake background and setting or not - is amazing. Definitely worthy of its place on the Front Page. Congratulations * * * * * from me. :eek::eek::applause::eek::eek:
