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.
If that wasn't enough, how about little Robin to bring in the holiday season?== TEASER ==
Who's the law? Judge Dredd is. And Francesco Francavilla is breaking the law with how great these renditions are posted over at Comic Twart. It's great seeing the penciled and finished versions of his second piece.
We talked a little about John Byrne on the podcast yesterday. Kind of funny since I found these two sketches on his message boards this week. The first is a classic tweak on the second generation of X-Men. And the second is an alternate reality of Fantastic Four meets X-Men.
When's the next issue of Ultimate Spider-Man. It feels like we were getting them on a less-than-monthly schedule and now maybe they're getting back on a normal schedule. Here's a sketch of Miles Morales Chris Samnee posted on Twitter.
You might have seen these earlier this week. Imagine if comic book covers were like animated gifs. These (and a couple others) are from Kerry Callen's blog.
That's it for this week. Be sure to check back for the next installment of Awesome Art Picks.
