HELP! trying to get a watercolor rock texture
working on textures and really having trouble getting across an "artistic" watercolor style. Been using Pohotoshop's Watercolor filter in combination with some other techniques. Justwondering if any of you have a cool way to add a watercolory look to say for example: a cave wall

filters suck ass. Especially the 'artistic' ones.
they just ruin photos. bad idea.

Filters will never replace painting but you can use both in combination if you are careful to keep your filters subtle and never use them to replace hard work. I would paint the colors and rough shadows on the surface then duplicate my layer, use some 'noize', 'cristalize' and 'craquelure' (in that order) on the top version of the layer, then fade the layer (make the opacity lower) and use and eraser to remove parts of the texture you don't like. You can then merge both versions and paint on top.
This will never remove the need to paint the volumes of the rock but it might give a little humph to some parts.
If you want a real watercolor look, you outta use either watercolor or Painter.

Have you considered painting some traditional watercolor by hand and then scanning it in to use as a texture?
