In Screen Rant’s exclusive Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse clip, Art Director Dean Gordon breaks down the inspiration for Gwen Stacy’s world, citing her comic books. He also explains that in her world, Earth-65, the primary colors, cyan, orange, and violet, are different from those in our world, yellow, red, and blue, which instantly differentiates her world visually on the most basic level. Visual Effects Supervisor Mike Lasker describes the world as wet and brushy with dripping paint.

Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse explores a number of universes beyond what the first movie offered.

Seeing how these characters blend together even in worlds so vastly different from their own is one of the most impressive elements of the movie’s animation.
