Heber Alvarado, a freelance character artist who has worked in numerous Gears of War games and Destiny 2, has recreated Resident Evil 5’s Sheva Alomar in Unreal Engine 5. This new character could give us a glimpse at what a remaster of Resident Evil 5 in Unreal Engine 5 could look like.
As Alvarado said:
“I love Resident Evil it is my favorite series, wanted to do an updated Sheva Alomar for a long time now, mainly as a means to learn a few different tools: Xgen/Arnold/Unreal etc.”
The end result is great and stays true to the original 3D model. Moreover, it looks even better than the character models in Resident Evil 8 or Resident Evil 3 Remake.
It would have been cool if Alvarado had also remade Chris Redfield. After all, I’m a big fan of the “boulder-punching” Chris 3D model. And while we are at it, I’d also like to see an updated 3D model for Wesker.
But anyway, enjoy the following screenshots and video!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
