"Finally get to show these! Here are some of the images that I painted for [BATMAN v SUPERMAN]. I was fortunate enough to spend a bit of time on all of the characters, but was lucky enough to be able to focus on illustrating the new Batman costume with the incredible costume designer Michael Wilkinson. This was a childhood dream come true."
Looks great -- and it's pretty close to the final design. What I like is that you can see the "armor" that's supposed to be built into the suit. You can't really see that in the actual suit that Ben Affleck wears and that's my personal petty issue with the suit. I'm not that big of a fan of the "muscle" that's clearly part of the costume design. As I said in last weekend's BOF MAILBAG, even though Affleck got big and jacked-up for the part, there's no way that his muscle definition (with striation!) could be seen while wearing a "cloth" body suit. Oh well.
