You can use MDF or poplar and get an excellent finish. The work is in the priming. Sand, prime, sand, prime and if need be, repeat. Get as smooth of a primed surface as you need then do your top coats.
I’ve used oils, lacquers, and acrylic latex (top coat) on both and optained excellent results. In my case they were all sprayed.

This is all MDF and poplar.
