hi, I've been dabbling in all areas of photoshop and I'm really trying hard to master the program. first I started with simple filter art, and moved into piecing images together and what not. Now I'm getting into digital painting.

as the title/subject of the thread states, i'm having trouble adding texture to what I'm drawing. the stuff I draw usually comes out looking like a balloon animal. I read most of the digital painting thread already in here, and while it gives clear instruction in color blending vs smudging it doesn't really say much about texturization (atleast I haven't come across it yet).

I've googled alot for some texture techniques but the only things that come up are some crappy grunge tutorials involving filters..
