Awesome Art Picks: Batwoman, Spider-Man, Daredevil and More

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

Each week we gather up the coolest comic art on the internet that will never appear in actual comic books. The reason is, artists often do sketches for fun or for commissions and post them on their websites, Tumblrs, Twitter pages and blogs. They're too good to go unnoticed. Many of these artists even offer commissions through their websites so be sure to check them out.

New York Comic-Con is almost upon us and Marcio Takara is working on pre-con sketches. Here's a few he posted on his Tumblr this week.

== TEASER ==

Michael Walsh will also be at NYCC. He posted a pre-con sketch and a 'Sketch Request Monday' on his Tumblr.

Skottie Young has been posting new sketches on his website and it looks like some older pieces on his Tumblr. Check out this cute "Hi Monkey" sketch. Check out his website to find out story behind it.

Gabriel Hardman has opened up his pre-NYCC commission list. Check out his blog to find out the pricing and to arrange for your own pic.

Paolo Rivera is getting ready for NYCC as well. Here's a Daredevil pic he posted on his blog for a St. Jude Children's Research Hospital charity auction. You can find out more about it HERE.

Philip Tan is continuing to post sketches on his Facebook page.

Mike Deodato is adding new and old pieces to his Tumblr. You could sit there for hours just looking at it all.

Agnes Garbowska will also be at NYCC. Her commission list is open as well. Check out her Tumblr for information on how to find out pricing and to put your request in.

Seems like everyone is going to NYCC. Daniel HDR has been busily working on his pre-con sketches as well. You can check out the various stages of them on his Tumblr.

Todd Nauck posted a few sketches on his Tumblr this week.

Here's some sketches Mike McKone posted on his TwitPic page. It's nice to see a slimmer Cyclops since he used to have the nickname "Slim."

Chris Giarrusso will also be at New York Comic-Con. Word is he'll have a new G-Man comic soon. Here's a cover sketch he posted on his website.


This sort of breaks the rules of "comic art you won't see in comics" but Chris informed me that the first issue of G-MAN - COMING HOME will be available at NYCC!

Mahmud Asrar posted a few sketches on his Instagram this week. Check out his steampunk Huntress and Psylocke along with a couple Supergirls.

It's always great to see what Denis Medri will post next on his Deviant Art Page. This week he put up a Sanford and Son pic.

Cameron Stewart posted a few commissions he's been working on on his Instagram page this week.

Last week was another new episode of Doctor Who. That means Francesco Francavilla posted another minimalist poster on his blog. This is for episode 7.04, "The Power of Three."

Brett Booth posts a new pic each week on his blog. Here's a Catman redesign he did for fun.

Our last entry is from Dustin Nguyen. He often draws in different mediums. Check out these pieces he posted on his Tumblr this week.

That wraps up another edition. New York Comic-Con is getting closer and closer.

OMG! Batman/Dr Who team up!?!? YES PLEASE!

Posted by I_Am_Dark

Did anyone else mistake Catman for the movie version of Nite-Owl or am I alone there?

Posted by LivingWire

My god! this one's amazing, Rhino and!!

Posted by 4donkeyjohnson

Awesome Taskmaster!

Posted by longbowhunter

The Catman redesign isn't bad. Philip Tan's Taskmaster for the win.

Posted by salmy

That Todd Nauck Deadpool has proved to me that he's prefect for Deadpool. Just cartoony enough but holding on to reality for Deadpool. I don't know, I just think he's would be a great artist on Deadpool.

I'm really loving the Doctor Who ones.

I always look forward to the black and white art. I print them out so my daughter can color them.

Posted by MarvelMan1985

That "Hela" by Philip Tan is very nice!

Posted by Crimsonlord53

Must really be cold in Hel from the look of that pic.

OK< no one getting that reference but dang....Skottie Young REALLY brought home the bacon this week. Wow.

Tan's Taskmaster and Walsh's Spirit, and Nguyen's monster mash all great stuff. Digging all the other artists as well, just too much for me to mention all the time. Love 'em, and always love this thread every Saturday!

Skottie Young's Orko and Skeletor are AMAZING! Once again, Phillp Tan knocked it out of the park. All his work is sooooo good.

Another excellent group! DeadPooh? Seriously? Awesome.

Posted by vincethekid

Please try and do new artists each week. I'm starting to see some repetition going with the same artists from week to week. Obviously, some of these guys are your favorite artist but, let's keep it going with some other talents peeps out there.



Posted by VictorVonDoom_1

Talent all around!

Posted by mtbmonkey

Laymont! You big dummy!

Posted by TheMadMonkey

Hands down, Skottie Young's Orko wins it this time! Never before has Orko looked so creepy and spooky. I love it!

Posted by ARMIV2

All are so very freaking awesome. I think my favorite one here would be that Taskmaster piece by Phillip Tan.
