André Cantarel created this stunning faithful representation of the White House as a result of his work in the VFX industry. According to André "the White House has been part of several movies I worked on so far but there was never a model available that included the level of detail needed for the shots. That’s how I got started making my own with the goal that every ornament, window detail and rain gutter is at its right place as well as making sure it matches the White House of today."
That kind of attention to detail takes a while, particularly on the painstaking research required to ensure accuracy. Andre estimates research took about 50% of the projects total time. Moreover, all the trees, bushes and flowers were built from scratch and without even using a procedural plant generator.

After modelling all the buildings I went on creating the entire garden with all its diversity of greenery. As so much of the large surface area is lawn it was clear to me that I have to use Forest Pack Pro for this. The setup was very easy. After a few hours of setting things up and painting all the distribution maps, the whole thing was ready to render. Interestingly enough, I also use it at work almost every day now as I did on Aquaman, Justice League and Tomb Raider among others.André Cantarel
