This image is to portray the struggles that some go through to achieve high success in schooling. Some are scared of failure and will go to any measure to succeed.
I blended 4 images together for the background and table and flattened those together. Then I added another image on top of my self. I then darkened the edges and used some brushes to angle in the light from the computer to go across the table. I also then painted in and brightened the pills to stand our more heavily.
