I created two versions of my object. One high poly and one low poly. I sculpted the high poly one and plan on baking a normal map so that my low poly one can have more detail.

My question is, once all the sculpting is done and I get everything ready to create a normal map. Which object do I begin painting on the high poly (sculpted) or low poly(non sculpted)?
