Marvel's Spider-Man Designer Reveals How They Made the Magic Happen

There can be no denying that it takes a lot of work to create video games, though when a developer studio sits down and really puts in the time and effort, the results can be truly breathtaking. One such example of excellent video game craftsmanship is none other than Marvel’s Spider-Man for the PlayStation 4, a product of years of work by the folks over at Insomniac Games. Now, one of the studio’s graphical designers has pulled back the curtain to reveal how they created some of the half-tone texturing for Spidey’s suits.

The breakdown is actually in a response to a fan that noticed that Insomniac had created Spidey’s suits using a specific half-tone design, and as such the fan reached out to the developer to ask how they went about doing it. The original tweet can be found below:

Insomniac Games graphical tech artist @jbtuason answered the request in glorious fashion, not only explaining the process, but drawing actual descriptive pictures to illustrate how the process worked. Here’s the full breakdown by the designer:

As seen above, it takes quite a lot of work to design suits for Spider-Man, something fans may want to remember the next time they go demanding specific suits from the developer. Thankfully the designer was extremely informative, and was more than willing to pass on their know-how to aspiring artists.

Marvel’s Spider-Man is now available exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
