The concept for this image started off around the idea of alchemy, of having various pieces of apparatus scattered around a lab. However, it was suggested that I add a face to the scene, which suddenly changed the image to one of necromancy (dealing with the dead).
All of the objects were made from scratch, with the exception of the heads, in Lightwave's Modeler. The head was borrowed from scans done of real heads using a Cyberware scanner, cleaned up, and trimmed to suit the scene. My thanks to Mark Powell for the inspiration and help with other aspects of the image.
