I’ve been practicing digital coloring lately, and also applying texture without making things look to filtery. Often times Photoshop filters produce less than satisfactory results so I scanned a bunch of random things at my house to hopefully get less cheesy results. (wax, metal, toilet paper, fabric, wood) Often times people new to PS take images and run them into the ground with effects and filters. This is bad, and you are bad if you do this. Use Photoshop as a tool not a crutch, even though it has a great range of features, sometimes a more subdued approach is best.
