Film Sketchr just posted a new Man Of Steel interview with costume illustrator, Phillip Boutte Jr.. It also includes artwork that Phillip created for the film, including: Lara Lor-Van's (Ayelet Zurer) "Mourning" and "Pregnancy" robes, costumes and accessories for the Kryptonian Elders, and an early concept for Faora's armor.
An excerpt from the interview:
Film Sketchr: It looks like a great team to work with. Was there any challenge you had to overcome and how did you overcome it?
Phillip Boutte Jr.: The biggest challenge I faced was helping to figure out what was special about the Kryptonian Tribunal members. Specifically, their ornate headdresses and steel cage crinoline-like bust plates.
Our designer had a very specific direction in mind that he wanted to go and it took me a while to get there. The initial point of inspiration, believe it or not, were the Skeksis from the movie "The Dark Crystal". We wanted to capture their pompous attitude.
