The ornate thing gets into the characters too, it's really odd. His work has a presence on page, but seems too "look at me, look at all the stuff I and my costume are doing" for the screen, it's very... thick in a way, very full to the point where it distracts from the forest simply to show off the trees. How would Sio Bibble have looked on the screen if this is what he was meant to be?
I liked Iain McCaig's work, but I do see what you mean about being too ornate. Which again seemed to be more about design than practicality.
