Six months ago I did some shitty renders of my 3D zbrush modeling of the fantastic illustration "Papy Soup" from Jean-Baptiste Monge.
Now I did again using renderpasses + Affinity Designer. To clarify, renderpasses are 2D images with splitted infos of an image (just shadows, just color, just shinning, etc)
Besides having achieved better results, I enjoyed and played a lot with this fun workflow with Affinity easy use. I have strong feelings about using Affinity Designer in future projects.
