Awesome Art Picks: Archangel, Damian Wayne, Gambit, and More

The coolest comic book art you won't see in comics.

Throughout the week, we search and gather up the coolest comic book art that you won't see in actual comics. The reason you won't is because artists draw sketches for fun or commissions and post them on their websites, blogs, and Tumblrs. Some artists even arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out.

Philip Tan posted some more sketches on his Facebook Page.

Marcio Takara posted a sketch and colored version of Damian on his Tumblr.

Check out this POWERS pic Skottie Young posted on his Tumblr.

Dustin Nguyen posted a sad sketch of Damian on his Tumblr. It's sad to think of him being gone.

Paolo Rivera posted this Daredevil commission on his blog he recently did for the Hero Initiative.

Here's a Nightwing pic Rod Reis posted on his Tumblr.

Brett Booth posted some new sketches on his blog.

Here's an Avengers pic Sean "Cheeks" Galloway posted on his Deviant Art Page. It was painted by Brian Lawva.

Ryan Stegman posted this 5-MINUTE sketch of Punisher on his Tumblr.

Here's a sketch Chris Giarrusso did for our Cosplayer friend Eddie.

Yildiray Cinar posted this Iron Man pic on his Instagram page.

Here's a Namor commission Mike McKone did at Motor City Comic Con and posted on his Twitter page.

Peter Nguyen posted some more X-Men pics on his Tumblr.

Joel Gomez posted some new sketches on his Tumblr this week.

Check out this LIFE Magazine "cover" Gene Gonzales posted on his blog. He even posted the non-textured version so you can see the difference.

Agnes Garbowska posted some commissions from Motor City Comic Con on her Tumblr.

Daniel HDR posted some more commissions on his Tumblr as well.

Mahmud Asrar posted some TGS Springbreak 2014 Pre-Show Commissions on his Tumblr.

Todd Nauck posted some more glorious X-Men sketches on his Tumblr. Did you read NIGHTCRAWLER #2 this week?

That's it for this week. Hope you dug these selections. If not, no need to let us know. We'll have more awesome art next time.

I like Nightwing's costume.

That archangel is freaking epic. The Elongated Man/Sue Dibny cover is bad-A$$ as well.

FF She-Hulk is awesome. Agree the Archangel is another knock-out. Lots of excellent picks this week.

I like the She-Hulk pic, because it looks like the 4 is actually distorted by mega-boob, but I just cant support the idea of other people ever joining the Fantastic4. Except for Thing, they are a family, so its different than a regular team.

I think of it like this: once they put the name out there, it became a marketing angle. If one of the original group left, they had to have a replacement so there were still "Four." Otherwise, their public would question the name. <shrugs> That's the why of replacing people for the comic too.

I wish I could follow Phillip Tan on facebook but it won't let me. Great stuff this week.

Me too!

I also liked the first Flash sketch, I could feel the intensity coming out of that drawing. But of course that Nova drawing brought the biggest smile to my face.

So much great Robin art!

Amazing art!

That Damian piece by Takara is beautiful! I love the watercolors

Posted by Pokeysteve

Does it piss anyone else off that he did this in 5 minutes!? I like it!

Edited by G-Man

@g_man: haha yeah I was the one that helped him. Sent him a message last night. Thanks :)

Dustin Nguyen's sketches of the X-Men are beautiful and the Alpha Flight rendering is gorgeous. Mahmud Asrar impressed me too, especially with his Sif creation.

@pokeysteve: couldn't do that in 5 hours. This was my favorite of the lot.

Posted by Pokeysteve

@doomdoomdoom: It would have been amazing to watch. Youtube has a lot of quick draw videos. I like watching people draw. I'm the same way. Couldn't do that in 5 days even haha.

These are cool I should look at these more often.

I'm jealous of his quick-draw.

You guys gotta check out Alan Quah here:

He did a noir style commissioning for a lucky guy. Amazing work!!!

IMHO, Alan > Frank. Just saying..

Peter Nguyen has such a beautiful style. It's a shame though, because his artwork could be the next big thing like Larocca, Madureira or Jim Lee even, if he just practiced more to get solid structure and anatomy in line.

My last p­ay ch­eck w­as $9­500 wo­rking 12 h­ours a we­ek on­l­in­e. My ne­ighbour's sister has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out.
