Step 12

Now continue in the working document. Change Blending Mode to "Screen". Place layer with bubble above model's layer and resize it with Free Transform tool (Ctrl/Cmd+T or Edit > Free Transform) slightly larger than model.


Add some texture on bubble. Load in Photoshop "Hexagons textures" brushes and on a new layer with Brush Tool (B) (Size: 300 - 500px, Opacity: 70-100%) draw texture which you like (I use "Sampled Brush ...” 16 and 17). Use white color and clip layer with texture on bubble (Cmd/Ctrl + Opt/Alt + G).


Now, create a volume for the texture, because the flat it cannot be. Hold Cmd/Ctrl and click on bubble thumbnail and return to the texture layer. Go to Filter > Distort > Spherize... and set Amount: 100%. Here is the volume that makes realistic bubble.


Step 13

So, part of the central sphere is ready, but now I am focusing on the creation of small spheres with cyborgs to revitalize a little picture and vary background. I will be able to create a more harmonious other elements (wires from the central sphere, bubbles, etc.). First group all the layers of the central sphere (Cmd/Ctrl + G) and duplicate it (Cmd/Ctrl + J). Duplicated group merge in a single layer (Cmd/Ctrl + E).


Use Move Tool (V) + Opt/Alt to make more copies of sphere. You need a depth of field, so first start filling picture with several larger spheres. Use Free Transform tool (Ctrl/Cmd+T or Edit > Free Transform) to change the size and rotate sphere. Rotate the sphere considering that bright flare should be towards the central sphere. Do not worry that the spheres have become dark, just change the Blending Mode to "Screen". When place spheres in the right places, merge these layers into one by converted layer into Smart Object (right click on layer > Convert to Smart Object).


Duplicate resulting layer (Cmd/Ctrl + J) and reduce it to get small spheres. Repeat the technique in the previous paragraph, only taking into account that you have a lot of spheres and that they need not much overlapped one upon the other.
