At the moment, working on a crypto-currency token and these are some experiences with modelling, trying to figure out displacements, light, shapes and other elements.
The Foundry Modo can be a very interesting tool for designers willing to quickly give shape to this kind of project (and not only). Render sometimes is time consuming but results are really interesting providing a good way to show and correct things on your model before getting into the prototyping phase.
I wish I could share the the real coin...maybe in a few months from now :)
