We all love comics and that mean we all love comic book art. It's always amazing how much talent today's artists have. We're used to seeing them draw on their normal monthly assignments but there's something about seeing them draw other things as well. Artists often do commissions and sketches for fun and post them on their blogs, Tumblrs and Twitter accounts. These pieces are so good they need to be seen and enjoyed by all. Each week we search high and low (and most places in between) to find the coolest art on the internet.
This week we'll start off with Marcio Takara. He's been posting a lot of DC characters on his Tumblr and they look amazing. Check out his Wonder Woman, Power Girl, Tim Drake, Dick Grayson, Barbara Gordon and Batman.== TEASER ==
That's not all Dustin posted this week. He also posted a sketch for Where the Wild Things Are (in honor of Maurice Sendak, who passed away this week), Brave and The Avengers.
Robert Atkins has been posting Avengers sketches on his blog for all of April. There's still more to be drawn. Be sure to check his site out if you're interested in owning an actual piece from him. Take a look at his rendition of the Avengers and Mockingbird.
Robert sometimes gets his friends to color some of his work. Check out these pieces colored by Mark Roberts.
Looks like Gabriel Hardman did some sketches during Free Comic Book Day. Take a look at these sketches he posted on his blog. Gabriel will also be at Summit City Comic Con in Fort Wayne, Indiana today! Check out his site for commission information. If you plan on being there, be sure to say hi to him from Comic Vine.
Skottie Young also did a piece in honor of Maurice Sendak. Check out what he had to say about him and the book on his website. I'm not gonna lie, it got me a little misty. The proceeds to the sale of this sketch and the rest of the week's Daily Sketches are being donated to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Skottie also posted a Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands piece. The guy is brilliant.
Also, be sure you swing by Michael's Tumblr on Mondays because he's going to start doing "Sketch Request Mondays." He'll take requests, give you a shout out and also put the piece up for sale.
You should check out Paolo Rivera's blog. He's always posted DAREDEVIL sketches along with the reference photos he uses to capture what DD would look like in different action shots. He also posts past commissions he's done such as this Captain America.
Cliff Chiang was contacted to do some Captain America propaganda posters for Captain America: The First Avenger. It didn't happen but imagine how cool it could have been. Check out his Tumblr for more information on them and who he would have worked with on them.
Todd Nauck did a little Twitter contest and let the winner chose who he sketched. Can you believe someone chose NFL Superpro?!?
That's it for this week. If you catch any cool art during the week, feel free to send me an email or pm.
