ArtStudio is just too good not to leave a review for. I’ve been using Photoshop on my PC for drawing, photo editing, and professional work for the past six years and when I finally got an iPad with Apple Pencil support I was really hoping Procreate or one of the numerous other drawing/editing apps would be able to replace the feel of PS. Unfortunately, even though Procreate is indeed an amazing drawing program, it still doesn’t really satisfy my need for the familiar feel of photoshop and drawing with photoshop brushes. ArtStudio Pro solved all my problems. It’s got everything you could need and MORE (I especially love their amazing smoothing/line weight algorithm and pressure customization). It’s basically Photoshop, but without having to pay the ridiculous Adobe subscription every month. The price for this app is perfect, in my opinion (and honestly it’s even a bit low, for all it’s able to accomplish) and I really want to give a huge thank you to everyone who worked on/is working on this app and updating it. You’ve saved me so much money and frustration. Hats of to you!

Assassin's Creed Can Help Rebuild Notre-Dame
16 April, 2019
News

A fire on Monday almost destroyed the legendary Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. The structure remains intact with its two main towers being safe, but the main spire collapsed, so the city needs to repair the icon.

Here is a statement from French president Emmanuel Macron:

“We will rebuild it. All together,” he tweeted.

One potential source of help is quite surprising and it’s Assassin’s Creed Unity set in Paris.

The thing is that Ubisoft level designer Caroline Miousse spent two years of her life setting up details of the cathedral to create an accurate version of the cathedral, brick by brick.

“I made some other stuff in the game, but 80 percent of my time was spent on the Notre Dame,” she stated back in the days.

The cathedral is the main structure in “Unity with the ability to explore both inside and out. The designer used tons of photos to get the architecture just right, and teamed up with texture artists to make sure that each brick is just perfect.

French representatives didn’t respond to this offer, but the move seems quite logical, right?

There are other resources for restoration, of course. For example, an exact digital replica of the building was captured by a architectural historian, Andrew Tallon, in 2015. You can learn more about the replica here.

P.S. Check out this amazing model of the cathedral from Sketchfab:

I have a feeling this is somehow going to circulate back to me via my mother, leading to a level 0 explanation to why that’s not the case. Cheers in advance.

Actuallly i have read a French interview of Antoine Vimal du Monteil, Producer at Ubisoft that’s saying otherwise.
And he clearly says that the reproduction is not accurate enough to really help, they have made “artistic” changes (proportions for example) to fit their needs. He believes, as it’s the most visited monument in France that there are way more competent people to help for reconstruction that what they have done to model it.
They are ready to help if they are asked though.

I’m sure they have blueprints too…. and probably scans.
