There were so many times I'd see art growing up and it seemed like magic how someone could recreate a texture or impression of a surface. Ultimately it's a matter of understanding 3 dimensional form and then having a formula that you keep consistent over the surface. Thought it's a bit demystified, I do enjoy trying to find out new techniques and formulas for textures I'm not as comfortable with. Always learning!
