Awesome Art Picks: Batwoman, Doctor Doom, Batman and More

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

Each week we run around the internet and search for the coolest comic book art we can find. Artists often draw sketches and commissions and post them on their blogs and Tumblrs. This allows them to experiment a little or simply have fun drawing characters they might not normally get the chance to in their regular assignments. The art is way too cool to go by unseen.

Let's start out with some art from Michael Walsh. He usually posts several pieces on this Tumblr each week. Check out his version of Gambit.

== TEASER ==

He also posted a classic Superboy pic.

Here's the Planet of the Apes pic posted last week but colored by his friend, Adam Metcalfe.

While we're on the subject of Planet of the Apes, check out this Dr. Zaius pic David Cutler posted on his Tumblr.

Cutler also posted this sketch of the New Warriors.

If you're still hungry for more apes and gorillas, you should know that Gabriel Hardman will be at Emerald City Comic Con. He posted on his blog where he'll be and information on commissions. Here's a couple examples of what he can do.

While we have Batman on our minds, check out this sketch Rafael Grampa posted on flickr via his Twitter.

But that's not enough Batman, is it? Here's the Jean-Paul Valley armored version Robert Atkins posted on his blog. He also posted some Venom and family.

Peter Nguyen changed tried some new things at WonderCon. Check out this Batwoman commission he posted on his Tumblr. He also posted a pic Psylocke and Magneto.

Paolo Rivera continues to post recent commissions he's done on his blog. Check out his Iron Man and Nova.

Phil Noto has been posting a lot of non-comic book art. This week he did post an interesting Wolverine-ish pic on his Tumblr. He wrote, "Logan, Laura and Charles -there’s a story in there somewhere…" Can someone make this happen?

I recently came across a Fantomex action figure (I'll showcase it soon). Check out this sketch Joel Gomez posted on his Tumblr last week.

Daniel HDR does a lot of sketch card commissions. Check out his Tumblr for more information. He's a great artist and a nice guy. Check out his (Iron) Spider-Man, Thor and Taskmaster & Deadpool.

Last but not least, Gene Gonzales keeps winning me over with his sketches. I'm a big fan of Death (from SANDMAN) and he posted this sketch on his blog entitled, "Death. London, 1968."

That's it for this week. Just a little tease for next week. I did do another Mystery Art Challenge at WonderCon. I should have the video up during the week and full scans of the sketches in next week's installment.

Ahh. So very good to see an Azrael pic. Few and far between. Many good selections this week.

Posted by BoyWander

Is it even necessary to say batman anymore? He's always there.

Posted by Purgy

Agree but i do love the Arazel and Gambit pics.

Posted by Maniac2312

Doom and Batwoman prevail this week.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

The Az-Bat was the best! I want all of these though...seriously.

Posted by ArtisticNeedham

my FAVORITE this week has to be Wolverine with an eye patch and a mustache chops beard thingy (what are they called?), and he and Laura are wearing uniforms. (But I do not know who Charles is.) I would also like to see this story happen.

I recommended DeviantArt's pros to you in the Podcast comments a few weeks back, whether you saw it or not, but this week, Terry Dodson has added another beautiful piece to his DevArt page:

Posted by Shawnbaby

I like the New Warriors Pic...looked very Bagley

Posted by KRYPTON

Great, super great!

Posted by MyraMyraMyra

I love that Death picture so much.

Posted by azza04

You missed this piece by Adi Granov

MJ & Gwen
Posted by ChocolateBatman

@ArtisticNeedham: Can't believe that no one realised that "Logan, Laura and Charles" is a take off of The Walking Dead

Posted by longbowhunter

I love the Dr. Zaius and Fantomex. Gonna try and score that Fantomex Marvel Legends figure myself pretty soon.

Posted by clemj

gambit and Azrael are the awsomest

Posted by cacarl

Venom & Family!

Posted by SpidermanWins

Seriously nice art on Batman and the Venom family.

Posted by fables87

Doctor Doom, Batwoman, and Death I like the best.

Posted by Black_Lantern_Bison22

Does anyone else think Rivera's Ironman is making a face and saying "You Have Got To Be Kidding?"

Posted by Decept-O

Robert Atkins' work is astounding. Wow. Again, all of these are great by the artists posted.

Posted by pspin

Phil Noto, your pics of X-23 are... like... something painful... I will miss not seeing your art in that fantastic series every month.

Posted by Omega Ray Jay

Top stuff as ever

Posted by LordRequiem

Go TOXIN!

Posted by Man of Lengend

Deadpool and Taskmaster are sweet

Posted by Miss_Garrick

Nice work this week.

Posted by sora_thekey

I saw Peter Nguyen's Magneto as he drew it at Wonder Con. Another great selection of art pieces!

VERY nice seeing Azrael here. JPV is awesome.

Posted by cracker_jack

Ugh. I've been trying to forget Superboy's classic costume.

Posted by The Impersonator

Great art as always!

Posted by Makkaar1984

Dr Doom and the symbiotes aren't half bad! And way to go Daniel HDR!! My favorites of the bunch

Posted by ArtisticNeedham

@ChocolateBatman: I don't read or watch the Walking Dead so thats why I didn't know. Still like it, I guess in the Marvel world it would be... well probably Marvel Zombies but what about the Brood infestation or something?

Posted by _Redbird_

These are awesome, I really like the Dr.Doom one!

Posted by Solarflare32

Superboys classic costume reminds me of super sabre

Posted by jemckinn214

Daniel HDR is my favorite from this batch. His Iron Spider is very striking to me. Peter Nguyen comes in at a very close second, Magneto looks like a boss.

i think you guys should consider adding a small section to Awesome Art Picks by adding some of the amazing art the comic vine community post themselves in the artist show off section!

oh..and Fantomex was definitely my favorite :)

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat. That Death is insane! Oh, and Psylocke and Fantomex. Cool. ^o^

Posted by TheHT

That Rafael Grampa Batman is one of the coolest depictions of Batman I've seen. I wanna read a comic with that Batman.

Posted by azza04

@sora_thekey: Adi has been putting out some awesome pieces lately, you can really see how his work has improved.

Third!

@azza04: I do have to say that his art is very good but my critique was always that the poses he used seemed too stiff... That particular piece is amazing!

So many good artists in this week's picks. Phil Noto is a beautiful genius and I don't care who hears me say it! @nahadef Absolutely love that piece by the Dodsons. They produce some greatness on a regular basis.
