Photoshop Tutorial: Pretty Bubble Wallpaper Effect by thundybear Photoshop Tutorial: Pretty Bubble Wallpaper Effect by thundybear
WARNING: big file size!

:bulletpink: I was playing around with photoshop brushes, and I accidentally discovered how to make a spray of circles-like brush. So I messed about a little and finally discovered how to make that really pretty bubble-art effect I see in a bunch of desktop wallpapers I love! :bulletpink:

:bulletorange: So, of course I had to make a tutorial to show everyone else how I do it (or how I did it, at least!) And sorry if there is already a better tutorial out there for this--this is just my method of going at it! :bulletorange:

:bulletyellow: SOME ADDITIONAL THINGS YOU CAN DO: :bulletyellow:
- Try locking the transparency of your bubbles layers and then using the gradient tool to turn your bubbles into rainbows or any other gradient you want
- Add another layer of bubbles under your first two, and blur it twice to add more depth
- Try adding a drop shadow to your bubbles layers or an outer glow by double clicking the space to the right of the layer's name in the layer dialogue box, and toying with the layer styles box

:bulletpink: If you use this in a work on deviantart, totally put it in the comments below so I can check it out! :bulletpink:

EDIT: I fixed the spelling on a few parts

EDIT: CHECK OUT MY NEW Rain Effect Tutorial for photoshop!

Fav and comment if you like, lots of love, :iconthundybear:.
