I often see 3D model portfolio stills like this, the standard white for more light and dark for more shade. Ambient Occlusion

what I am sharing is another alternate way of showcasing that 3D model.

This idea came from taken ideas from concept art "strongest silhouette" and also the idea that white often attracts the eye to a that particular location.

My question is whether if there are other people who have considered this style before and whether it is kind of blasphemous to break the tradition of Ambient Occlusion

while i wouldnt call it blasphemous to break the tradition I do think the ambient occlusion looks far better ,it shows details in a more natural light,

Rather than a black dark color, can you change it to a blueish/scifi color? That is sure to make it pop out more.

Personal taste apart, I doubt any employer would appreciate that. Also, the normal way makes you see details properly.
My two cents
