Did my first set of Magic: The Gathering cards about a year ago and have been working on em since :). Always wanted to work on the cards so it was pretty cool to see them finally get released. Even though I'm not really feelin them as much as I did when I finished... Still fun though :D.
And yes, the second one looks totally like Alien. I was given a silhouette that looked alien like so I just ran with it :).
