Underwater 2 - making of

Start with blank document. Fill background layer with gradient going from light blue to dark blue.


In Layer effects, use very large (250px) black Inner Glow, with blend mode = overlay.


In new layer, select very large brush, set color to white and put a single dot.


Transform layer (Ctrl-T) to make dot width less and height more.


Move white dot to top of image (so that only bottom half of  it is visible) and set its layer blend mode to Overlay.


Duplicate this layer and make it about 50% smaller.


Next step is  to create nice light rays. Create new document, with square size (width = height), and width is about 200% of your original image width. (if you design wallpaper at 1024x768, create 2000x2000 image). Fill it with any color, and in Layer effects, check Gradient Overlay. Open dropdown list of gradient selection, select Noise family of gradients, and select any noise gradient. Then, set Style to Angle.


To convert Layer effect to editable image, flatten image (from Layer menu). Desaturate (Ctrl-Shift-U).


Crop image as shown here. Example: if entire image with gradient is 2000x2000, crop to 1024x768.


Copy all (Ctrl-A, Ctrl-C) and paste into our original image.


Then, simply set the blend mode of this layer to Overlay. Voila!


Next step is some bubbles. Select 19px hard brush, and set its spacing to very large value (500-700%).


Also, check Shape Dynamics, and set size jitter and minimum diameter as shown here.


Make some chaotic btush strokes.


Set layer blend mode to screen (this will make black dots invisible). Then, use layer effects (such as inner glow, drop shadow, bevel and emboss) to make dots look like bubbles. Registered users can download PSD file from Downloads page of  my site, and see what exactly effects are used.


Repeat bubble-making steps 3-4 times.


...and here is the result!

I have been an advanced user of PS, but never the "creative" type, your tutorials have inspired me to move in a more fullfilling direction rather than just photo composition and retouching. A big THANKS!

I started using Photoshop when I saw your tutorials and I've using nearly all the tools. Now I feel more confident and I can make more than few things by myself. I can't find a word big enough to say THANKS! Your creativity and talent have touch many of us and inspirated to "try" to make beautiful things too. Thanks again for sharing.

I was hoping you could help me. I'm kind of stuck and don't see what I am doing wrong. Love your tutorials, and they are so easy to follow but it may be something on my end though. I'm trying to make the single white dot, and then put an overlay on the layer after resizing and moving it to the top. But the white dot disappears, you can barely see it. Am I using the wrong colors as far as the background goes, or why is it that my white dot is barely seen but yours is there? Here's what I'm talking about: Why is my dot not showing up as good as yours? Am I missing something? Great tutorials by the way!! :D

Hello, happy to get some tutoring about Photoshop and the explaining is in a simple, understanding way. You have a gift of teaching, why don't you teach as well?

Marnie Wright 25 Agosto 2013 I am thoroughly astounded by your imagination and the creativity and inventiveness that goes into your work. I wish that you lived nearby and could teach classes whereby I (and everyone else of course) could ask you questions as we go along. I would probably be so shaken by your presence I wouldn't be able to draw or work at old were you when you started and were you doing it for years before you took off to be the icon and inspiration you have been (and are). You should go down in history!!!! I know I will never forget your work and I would recognize it anywhere! Take care, Marnie
