So I'm putting the finishing touches on a Namor custom and I'm a bit torn. He's a shirtless character so the question is add nipples or leave them off? Also for shirtless characters are you pro nipples, or anti nipples? I know most Hulk and wrestling figures leave them off, but it still seems weird leaving them off.

Yep. This thread was not what it promised in the title. Since I'm here...many shirtless Hulks do have nipples. Planet, King, FO, Savage, etc and can be, due to the larger size, a good reference for sculpting a comic male nipple. The key even in anatomical accuracy, when sculpting said appendage is subtlety. Too much nipple and Namor will have man boobs.

Thanks guys. Decided to go with the nipples.

If you're going for anatomical accuracy, I'd add the nipples. The only thing I don't like about putting nipples on a figure is that it can be tricky to get them perfectly aligned symmetrically.

The nipples add to the overall shirtless look. If he doesn't have them, he's like wearing a skintone leotard..... I love nipples.

I tend to just finish a paint job then decide of I want to paint them on or not. I think if there's some kind of armour on the chest it's ok to leave them off but if he's completely naked up top I'd put them on. So in the case of namour, I guess I'd be pro nipples too.

whenever I've done a shirtless custom I always add nipples so yeah I guess I'm pro nipples but its completely up to you.
