How To Make Bubbles

This is a basic tutorial video on how to make bubbles similar to mines on Adobe Photoshop. You can use what you learn from this video and your creativity to make your own bubbles. In this video I did the 68 x 68 bubbles but the process is the same for all of them, only the image size changes. If you start-off with the biggest size first you can just shrink the same bubble to the smaller sizes, the other option is to redo all sizes from scratch.

This is fantastic. After watching this twice and having some hands on help from my cousin I've finally made my own!

Any tricks to making the 112x138 bubble(zoom in 2) and the 125x208 bubble (bubble foldec)?

Haven't figured that out totally yet lol and you didn't go over it in the video

zoom effects can be as big as bg1 and bg2, so you can basically use anything for zoom effects, for different style of zoom effects see these themes: The Joker, Wiz Khalifa, Rich Yung, and Bape.

When I resize bubbles big to small OR small to big they seem to change and look weird. Any advice?

The usual thing to do will be to make the bigger bubbles first and shrink them to smaller sizes but if you want perfect round bubbles I would recommend re-doing every size separately, you can resize the reflection but make a new circle for each size. The other option would be to use vector shapes, that way you can make a perfect resize but it is harder to make realistic looking bubbles with only vector shapes.

Thanks a lot... I was hoping it didn't have to come down to that but I would like it to look uniform. I'll just make each size seperately :)
