Displacement Maps > 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

Displacement Maps are useful for making 2D patterns "wrap" around fold or curves on an object with a perceivable depth.

I was studying Intron Depot 2 and noticed Master Shirow uses displacement maps a lot when texturing clothing or monsters.

I'm no master Shirow and this art to the left was a bit rushed but hopefully it will be enough to help you unlock the secrets of this advanced photoshop technique.
