Each week we're on the look out for the coolest comic book art that will never be printed in comic books. The reason they won't be is artists often draw sketches and commissions and post them on their blogs and Tumblrs. It's a way for them to experiment and work on characters that might not normally appear in the books they're currently working on. The pieces are simply way too good to go unseen.
Ever since Michael Walsh first appeared on this feature, he's made an appearance every week. Not only is his art worthy but he continues to post many wonderful pieces each week on his Tumblr. We've been seeing a lot of teasers for the upcoming Spider-Man/Doc Ock event, Ends of the Earth. Check out this classic-style image of the two.
Remember when we did our Art Challenge with several different artists, Catwoman as a Green Lantern? Freddie Williams II posted a commission he was asked to do. Jason Todd as a Red Lantern and posted it on Twitter.
Speaking of red, Paolo Rivera seems to constantly get asked to draw characters with a red theme (besides the fact he's drawing DAREDEVIL) and thankfully he posts them on his blog. Check out his version of Carnage.
Agnes Garbowska is another person you should look for at conventions. Her art (and personality) will definitely brighten your day. Check out her robin following Robin, Star Wars sketch cards and Lumpy Space Princess! Check out her Tumblr for more.
Gene Gonzales posted this little sketch last weekend on his blog. He referred to is as a doodle but this is what I love about artists. They can just whip out a great sketch with minimal effort. Take a look at his Zatanna.
That's it for this week. Let us know what you thought of these selections. Be sure to check keep an eye out for all the awesome art on the internet.
