I've just started using Adobe Dimension to block out my artwork. I'm finding it much easier to use for staging than most 3d apps I've tried.
Original block out. It was pretty 2 dimensional and I didn't really like it much. Initially I dropped the piece as I couldn't get what I wanted.
I went back several months later after completing The Moon to Mars competition on Adobe Dimension and tried again using Dimension, Photoshop and Fuse.
Painted up in photoshop. it changed slightly.
