Awesome Art Picks: Aquaman, Iron Man, Judge Dredd & More

The coolest comic art of the week that you won't see in comic books.

It's time once again to check out some of the coolest comic art on the internet that you won't see in actual books. The reason is artists often draw sketches for commissions or for fun on their personal blogs and Tumblr accounts. It gives them a chance to draw characters they want to and may not normally get the chance on their assigned books.

Let's start out with Nightwing. Joel Gomez posted this on his Tumblr. As usual, it's pretty cool stuff.

Phil Noto is back on Awesome Art Picks with one from one of my favorites, Battle of the Planet (or if you prefer, Gatchaman). Check out his rendition of Princess.

Phil also posted an image of Finn and Jake from Adventure Time on his Tumblr. I still haven't seen the show. I'm intrigued by the commercials and also a little scared by them. Seems there's always some freaky stuff going on.

Ready for some Dustin Nguyen artwork? This week he posted an image of Aquaman.

Imagine if someday we could see a crossover with Dustin's art and Agnes Garbowska. She recently posted a piece she did before and it has Kitty Pryde, Lockheed and Magik!

Those were pretty dang cute. How about we turn it around a little? Who's the law? Why it's Judge Dredd, of course. Last week we saw a really great piece by Francesco Francavilla posted at Comic Twart and there's some more Dredd coming our way.

The first is by Evan Shaner, followed by TWO from Mr. Hawthorne with the last by Dave Johnson.

This week at Comic Twart there was also a pic of Chun-Li by Ron Salas. Perhaps we'll be seeing more Street Fighter images coming.

Peter Nguyen was busy and posted a sketch of Justice League Unlimited on his Tumblr.

Duncan Fegredo posted a couple commissions on Twitter of Poison Ivy and Hellboy.

Finally, you might recall a 3D art image of Baby Magneto by Victor Hugo posted back in June. Check out his Tony Stark pic. Is there any way we can get Disney to get this guy to do Marvel shorts in this style before their feature films?

That's it for this week. Be sure to check back for the next installment of Awesome Art Picks.

Also the Justice League, Hellboy and Tony Stark pics are very good.

I would like to see them as movies.

A 3D Marvel short would be amazing!

Posted by Jolt92

That Hellboy is f'ing amazing.

Posted by TheOptimist

They're all pretty sweet this week... my tops are the JLU, the Ivy and the Aquaman... the Nguyen and Garbowski art really makes me which we had a more expansive children's line at the big 2.

I really liked the one with Kitty Pryde, Lockheed, and Magik!

Joel Gomez is a delight every week. Coolest pic I've seen of Nightwing in his new costume. I actually just saw the Aquaman one on a fansite the other day.

The nightwing, dredd and hellboy pics are awesome. And I'd love to see a short done in that style of tony.

Fedrego should draw at least one issue of Hellboy.

I can`t believe it, but I`d guess that Poison Ivy isn`t thinking of anything malicious in that pic.

Posted by The Impersonator

Love that Chun-Li kick. :P

Posted by NyxEquitis

@G-Man: You have a right to be scared by commercials for "Adventure Time." Crazy, pointless show.

Posted by StarKiller809

I really like the Nightwing one. The other ones are cool to but Nightwing is my favorite.

Aquaman got in a shark fight and lost is leg. He should get an eyepatch and be a pirate.

Posted by EdwardWindsor

that Ironman pic is quality , a short using that stylewould be awesoem. Somebody needs to make it happen.

Posted by Decept-O

Good God all of these are incredible! The Judge Dredd pieces and the Chun-Li are fantastic but the work by Duncan Fegredo is just exquisite.

Posted by allison_scag

Great artwork guys. I especially like the Hellboy and Poison Ivy drawing.

Posted by fables87

Some of these are really good.

Posted by AlKusanagi

Everything needs more Lockheed.

Posted by AwesomeAquaman

Aquaman and Adventure Time!!!

Posted by Havik86

I love the Aperture Science label on the beer bottle of the Iron Man 3D art. So cool.

Posted by haydenclaireheroes

All the artwork this week were really great my favorite were the Aquaman picture and the Nightwing picture.

I'd totally be down with some Pixar Marvel shorts animated in that style.

Great stuff all around as usual. Lot's of Dredd of late.

Is that Static in the left of the JLU picture? That would be awesome.

Posted by Miss_Garrick

great pieces!

Posted by WobblySnake

What time is it?


Oh man Adventure Time is probably my favourite show at the moment, and Phil Noto is one of my favourite artists. The two together? Pure gold.

Also, it's good to see Chun-Li's thighs in proportion for once..

Posted by AlwaysBeClothing

I really like Phil Noto's stuff, but I am excited people still care about Batman Beyond

Posted by Lezama

Posted by blueninjapanther

Justice League Unlimited and the 3-D Tony Stark pic looks awesome.

Love, love, LOVE Phil Noto's art - always! - but adore that he's done one of my all-time favorite characters from my early childhood (that I *still* love!): Princess/Jun!!

Also adore the Poison Ivy --- Very, very cool...

I love this feature and look forward to it everytime I come on - Thanks ComicVince :D

I was gonna say that Nightwing is truly outstanding and the best of the bunch...but I just felt in love with that Princess from Battle of the planets/Gatchaman!! <3

She looks gorgeous! Great art from Noto, as always^^
