Bubble Reflection Tutorial

I couldn't find a tutorial on how to do convincing bubbles with proper reflections ... so I thought I should share how I did mine

I have shown two ways to make a bubble reflection ... the part in green is for PS 3 and lower

Here's what I made:

The bubble brush I used in the tutorial is this one (the first bubble in the set): [link] ~elestrial

This tutorial was painstakingly and lovingly made by me! You do not have permission to post it on other websites without my permission ... you are however free to use the "share" buttons to pin and tweet and stuff this tut.

Please feel free to browse my stock account :iconre--creation:

EDIT 01:
The 3D menu is only available on Photoshop CS4 Extended edition (and above?) ... so I added another method to make up for that. Now you have 3 methods to create the start of the reflection: 3D Sphere (blue); Liquify: Bloat (green) and Warp (purple).
