I've been developing a flash game which is a top-view table top game. I'm trying to have a go at the art myself and need the table to look kind of smooth and not photo-realistic.
So far I tried to import a wooden texture to photoshop (which I have very little knowledge of) and apply a few filters to the texture but it ended up looking photo-realistic while the objects on top were clearly vector graphics - sleek and shiny.
I'd like to create a table-top that looks like the background table found here.
Any ideas how to do it?
