Awesome Art Picks: Catwoman, Spider-Man, Rogue, and More

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

Each week we search for the coolest comic book art that you won't see in actual comics. The reason you won't is because artists often draw sketches for fun or commissions and post them on their websites, blogs, and Tumblrs. Some artists even arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out.

Ryan Ottley was busy at C2E2 last weekend. Here's some sketches he posted on his Tumblr.

Skottie Young was also busy at C2E2. Here's sketches he posted on his Tumblr.

Philip Tan posted some more sketches on his Facebook Page.

Yildiray Cinar posted some more warm up sketches on his Instagram.

Peter Nguyen took the Mystery Art Challenge again (see way below). Here's some sketches he did at C2E2 and posted on his Tumblr.

Agnes Garbowska was also at C2E2 and took the Challenge. Here's some sketches she posted on her Tumblr.

J Scott Campbell posted several quick sketches on his Instagram.

Sean "Cheeks" Galloway posted a couple commissions on his Deviant Art page.

Paolo Rivera posted a commission from earlier this year on his blog.

Mitch Breitweiser posted some art recently on his Tumblr.

Mike McKone was at C2E2 and talked to us about JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED. Here's a Thor commission he did there and posted on his Twitter page.

Joel Gomez posted some new sketches on his Tumblr this week.

Mahmud Asrar posted a couple commissions from C2E2 on his Tumblr.

Gene Gonzales posted some new art on his blog. Some are available for purchase in the "Art for Sale" tab.

Daniel HDR posted some new commissions on his Tumblr and Facebook page.

Marcio Takara posted some C2E2 commissions on his Tumblr.

Beth Sotelo has a character she created called Grump. Here's some Grump-y sketches she posted on her Tumblr.

Clay Mann posted a couple commissions from Calgary Expo on his Tumblr.

Chris Giarrusso was pretty busy at C2E2. Here's a bunch of commissions he did at C2E2 and posted on his Facebook Page.

Tony Daniel was briefly at C2E2. Here's a couple more commissions he did.

Todd Nauck was also busy at C2E2. Here's a bunch of commissions he posted on his Tumblr.

There was another Mystery Art Challenge at C2E2. This time it was Rogue...and a spider. The way the challenge works is the artist have no idea who or what they'll be drawing until they hear the challenge when the camera is rolling. It's always a popular character and some random object. It's then up to them to be creative and draw the picture. They don't have a time limit. It's entirely up to them how much or how little time they want to spend. They generally spend between ten and twenty minutes.

Here's the video if you didn't catch it the other day.

Here's the art:

Peter Nguyen

Chris Giarrusso

Todd Nauck

Agnes Garbowska

That's it for this week. We'll be back next time with even more art.

Galactus looks pissed, mini-Hawkeye looks like Calvin, and Ivy looks sexy as ever.

That Thor one is pretty badass.

There's something strangely hilarious about Chris Giarrusso drawing Negan...

Also, did Skottie Young actually draw that on a paper bag?

Posted by AlwaysBeClothing

Wow, the Takara stuff looks great. I'm really digging Todd Nauck's mystery art Rogue, I have to look into how much it would cost to commission him!

@lee_everett: I guess people ask for all sorts of characters for commissions.

So many good ones this week. Has Skottie Young ever done any animated work? Because his style would be so awesome as a cartoon.
