Last Friday, former Insomniac artist Xavier Coelho-Kostolny revealed in a now-viral tweet that he was the only man alive to have sculpted Spider-Man’s nipples for a video game.
Now, in a set of interviews based off of that revelation, Coelho-Kostolny has detailed the process behind his artistry – which also extends to Spider-Man’s butt and bulge.
Marvel’s Spider-Man’s nipples can of course be seen when wearing the game’s unlockable “Undies” outfit, which presented its own unique challenge to developer Insomniac. Peter Parker – like Mario – is very rarely seen in the buff. And he is also owned by Marvel, which is typically protective over its legendary library of characters.
