Magic The gathering_ Vampire Concepts

Hello, my last post was almost 2 months ago already. Unfortunately I haven't really had any time to work on too much more personal work because I have (fortunately!) been getting fairly regular freelance work.
The art I am posting is from the first wave of concept art done for Magic the Gatherings Zendikar release. I did a bunch of concepts for the 2010 releases that I will eventually post here. Below are only the concepts I was doing for the neo vampires. The direction was to make them less monstrous but still keep them in the natural world. The chosen direction was more tribal then what I have posted (which to me is a bit more Egyptian) but you can still see some of the below art influenced in the cards (none of which are posted because I didn't paint any vampire cards). I was pretty happy with what I ended up with even though it wasn't really used.
The art at the bottom of this post was the art that I did on site which had to be done very quickly because we had to concept a lot of stuff out in the two short weeks I was at the main offices.
Thanks for looking.
