I create this image for the cover of a japanese magazine : Cg world (http://www.wgn.co.jp/cgw/).
It is the second of a series of 3 images with the same Idea : The building we made are now growing by themself.
This idea is already use in a short film we made with friend, you can see this shortfilm here : http://www.aokistudio.co.jp/movies/musicien.htm
For this images, i begin by shootingNotre Dame de Paris with a good camera (Nikon D3). I choose a good picture and i began to draw the layout in photoshop.
When i was satisfied, i began to work in max.
Compositing and paintover are made in photoshop.
Hope you like it
