    Lightbulb Resident Evil 6 Piers Nivans (Normal & C-Virus Infected Version) BONUS PIC ADDED



    Since the last RE6 project building Chris Redfield, I have been planning to do his sidekick - Piers Nivans. The biggest challenges were to find a suitable head in the market as well as obtaining 2 sets of identical accessories to build the 2 versions of Piers. At the end I did not find the perfect head and I did not find 2 complete sets of accessories. But I tried my best to build the figures anyway.

    (I know the head doesn't really look like Piers. Unfortunately I do not have the skill to re-sculpt the head. Also the design of the infected arm is not faithful to the game setting. It is more based on the comic picture)

    The figures are based on both the game setting and also other reference images found from the web.



    Photoshop CG's
    The CG's are based on the game storyline.

    The BSAA team is arriving Lanshiang


    Chris and Piers are leading a BSAA team to search for BOW in the Walled Kowloon City


    Fighting mutated J'avos at the roof top


    C-virus mutated Piers fighting Haos, the final boss


    Piers: "I did it for BSAA..." Chris: "We are both getting outta here, all right?"


    Heading to the escape pod chamber


    Piers sends Chris away in the escape pod


    Piers sacrifices himself at the end - he is a tragedy hero!


    The Figures

    Normal Version
    Head: ACI Matt Damon, hair style modified
    Body: HT TTM2
    Shirt: Unknown make, trimmed to fit body better
    Vest: HT Barney Ross
    Pants: GML SDU
    Knee Pads: Soldier Story Repainted
    Boots: BBI
    Accessories: Unknown make, some are repainted
    M200 Sniper Riffle: Zytoys




    C-Virus Infected Version
    Head: ACI Matt Damon, hair and wounds customized
    Body: HT TTM2, infected arm customized
    Shirt: Unknown make, trimmed to fit body better, repainted
    Vest: HT Barney Ross, customized
    Pants: GML SDU
    Knee Pads: HT Repainted
    Boots: BBI
    Accessories: Unknown make, some are customized & repainted





    Work In Progress

    1. Original head (looks like young Matt Damon)
    2. Sculpted hair with Sculpey
    3&4. Sculpted details of the infected version head with Sculpey
    5. Painted the flesh base
    6. Painted the eyes and lips
    7. Use plastic and epoxy putty to sculpt the ear piece
    8&9. Painted the flesh base for the infected head


    1. Customizing the base for the infected arm. Foam is used to reduce weight
    2. Dissolve glue into water. Soak scarf into the liquid
    3. Scarf left in open area to get dry
    4&5. Customizing drop pouch
    6. pour plaster inside the head to make it more rigid, otherwise the sculpey may fall off
    7. repainted knee pads
    8. customized drop pouches


    1. Design sketch for planning the details sculpting
    2. Sculpting the arm muscle texture
    3. Use brass robs as base for sculpting exposing bones
    4. Brass robs as base for sculpting the claws
    5. Claw sculpting
    6. A close up of the back with exposing rib bones
    7. Eproxy glue to sculpt the "melting" effect


    This is by far the biggest sculpting work I have ever done. The arm has 4 limited articulation points. The transformation, from left to right below:
    1. Eproxy putty to form the base
    2. Sculpey to fine tune the shape
    3. Sculpey to produce the muscle and vein details


    Thanks for watching! I hope you enjoyed my work. All comments are welcome!

    Nice! Very good job overall, but also showing the wip pictures were really great. Stiffening the headsculpt with plaster? Just genious - I have to remember that for the future.

    That was mentioned in the post. On normal version is Soldier Story's. On infected version is HT's. Both were repainted.

    Epic CUSTOM! You should recast all your custom parts for sale. I would buy it!

    FYI - The HEADSCULPT is ACI's old Saving Private Ryan's Matt Damon. Its cheap here if you know where to look.

    Those urban camo knee pads are specially for Piers. I think the BSAA soldiers should use something more general. I used the HT SDU ones.

    I have never seen those pads in the market. Maybe that's a game setting.

    Amazing stuffs Ray. Your skills has reached another level.
    The infected arm are superbly sculpted yet retain the level of articulations.
    The mutated portion from the right shoulder joining the chest is superbly done that it looks naturally gradual instead of an abrupt switch.
    Overall an A+ piece of custom in my book.

    Impressive accomplishment, I usually hate to see a sculpt "mutated", but this is pretty powerful. On the level of Sharlto Copley's Wikus van der Merwe in District 9. Terrific stuff..
