Spider-Man: Miles Morales Alternate Suit Design Details Shared by Artist
One of the most anticipated PlayStation 5 launch titles is certainly Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, in which the young hero can wear several different suits. One of them, the so-called TRACK suit, was unveiled in advance and shows a black and white suit with a red pattern. The designer of this special costume of Spidey now went into more detail about its creation.
The designer of the T.R.A.C.K. suit (Time Response Activated Circuit Kinetic), Javier Garrón, spoke to Marvel.com about his ideas for the Spider-Man: Miles Morales suit. The site also released a concept drawing of the costume, which you can check at the top of this article, as always. When asked what particularly inspired him to the design, Garrón said:
“You have all the classic elements from the Spider-Man lore: the webs, the pointy-shaped big eyes, the spider logo. I wanted to have a new take on the mythos, design-wise, but always trying to keep it coherent and part of the larger picture.
There are those elements that make Miles unique as a Spider-person. Black and red colors. The sport accessories and vibe in some iterations of the suit. I tried to be as aware as possible of how design in games is now in. Try to make it current and vibrant. Unique but definitely Spidey.
As I played with the spider logo on Miles’ chest, I realized it could be interesting to make it one element with the one of the back, connecting their lines through the trapezius muscle. I was always keeping the webbing in Miles head and shoulder but as I started joining the symbols it kind of started creating zones in the costume, little frontiers. And that zonification is the perfect composition set of lines to make shifts in color and texture. I definitely wanted to keep the black color and as I finally did bleed it to the hands. But trying to make the whole thing more straightforward too, since I tend to complicate things too much and I need to edit myself down constantly, I found it interesting to reduce the webbed area.”
We will find out how well the suit looks in the finished game from November 12, 2020, when Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be released for both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5.
