Resident Evil: Nemesis sculpture

A few years ago (2016 ish, probably) I was asked to make a Resident Evil Nemesis figure, but haven’t posted it up here. Time to fix that. I’m not a massive fan of Resident Evil, I like the games but I’m not totally up on the lore so had to do some research before starting.

A basic shape was blocked out in wire and milliput and then sculpted over. I wanted to get a pose that was quite solid as the Nemesis is supposed to be quite a powerful character, so went for a position as if he was walking forward menacingly.

I was using Super Sculpy firm so its grey rather than the usual pink. I was using bits of metal to make the staples, buckles and other details so they would survive in the oven. Most was just little strips I cut and bent or clipped as I went along. I also used a few pins for rivets.

I baked it in parts, doing the body first and the hands after before baking the whole thing again. Sculpey is fine to be baked a couple of times so working in stages helped me focus on different parts.

Out of the oven. I wrap them in foil before baking as it helps them to not burn. Once out of the oven, any extra work was done with milliput or green stuff so I didn’t have to bake it again for small parts.

and once the hands had been done, I slapped a layer or two of paint on him.

All finished. He currently lives with his owner and hopefully hasn’t murdered any S.T.A.R.S. recently, or his owner.
