Also, if the effect will be in unwanted places, simply convert layer into Smart Object (Right click on layer > Convert to Smart Object), add a layer mask and remove unwanted effect. Clip this layer on model layer (Cmd/Ctrl + Opt/Alt + G) to hide the sticking out part of the circles.


Duplicate the model layer (Cmd/Ctrl + J) and place it above the layer with curves, hold Cmd/Ctrl and click on curves thumbnail to select them. Go to top model layer and delete (Del on keyboard or Edit > Clear) selection. To Deselect use Cmd/Ctrl + D or Select > Deselect. Add a "Bevel & Emboss" style. Set the settings, as shown in image below. Clip this layer to previous.


Now I added a texture to fill the space inside the model. Do to File > Place and add image "cables_01_by_ribot02-d55feku". Move this layer between two layers with cyborg effects. Hold Cmd/Ctrl and click on curves thumbnail and add a layer mask to remove all texture except on curves. Be sure to clip this layer (Cmd/Ctrl + Opt/Alt + G). Use Soft Round brush with Size: 35px to remove on a layer mask a part of texture from edges of big circles.


Step 11

Now create a big bubble, where we will place our model. There is nothing to search and download, I'll show you how to do it yourself. First, we need a new document (Cmd/Ctrl + N or File > New) 600 pixels wide and 600 pixels height, resolution 300 Pixels/Inch, Background color: Other (black). Merge all model layers into one (Cmd/Ctrl + E).


Go to Filter > Render > Lens Flare... Set Lens Type: 105mm Prime, Brightness: 100%. Position highlight in box so that its edges have been cut off, and all parts of flare not be the light source and click OK.


Go to Filter > Distort > Polar Coordinates... Set "Polar to Rectangular" and OK. Rotate image on 180 degrees (Image > Image Rotation > 180 degrees).


Again add a filter "Polar Coordinates" but in this time set "Rectangular to Polar" and your bubble done! It remains only to cut it. Use Elliptical Marquee Tool (M) and hold Cmd/Ctrl + Opt/Alt to create proportional circle from the center of the image. Be careful and attentive. Make sure that you have circled the entire bubble and it did not get excess. To make it easier to use - right click > Transform Selection. Take Move Tool (V) and move bubble into document with photo manipulation.
