We originally had only a handful of images of coins with which to build this scene. But by adding light and shadows, we created a treasure chest of immense wealth built up with many layers of coins. The wood around the edges and the metal fittings were also created in Photoshop out of ordinary images of wood and metal with various effects applied to the surfaces.
 The images for each weapon came from a number of image libraries. As a result, they were all lit differently. After constructing the background wooden box and paper labels, the weapons were placed in the scene and then individually colour edited to ensure they all had the right lighting and shadows to bring the scene together.
