Well, the clearer deadline didn’t work. Still just two.

1. I love seeing alien species, monsters, etc. Both of these guys are enough to make me homesick–I mean–happy.
2. Both entries did use at least one item in an innovative way. Props to NHA for belt item as paint holders–magnetic?
3. Both good illustrations in general. Subjective illustration issues were secondary. (NHA? Where’s the white paint spray can? Keric? I’m having trouble with trajectory–can’t figure out where the horseshoe tosser stood. Both have possible explanations.)
4. Emotional effect. That’s what decided this one.
