One thing is (at least for me) the prime thought I always have when working on low poly designs. I want them to look as “real” as possible.
So when working on these food Shots that was my main goal too. Make it recognizable. you should not have to think about what it is, but just know it. That´s what makes good design in most cases – it should just be there, completely unnoticed.
And it should be yummy of course, at least in this case anyway.
