Awesome Art Picks: Cobra Commander, Wolverine, Robin and More

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

Every week we look for the coolest comic art we can find that will never appear in actual comics. The reason they won't is because artists often draw sketches for fun or commissions and post them on their blogs, websites and Tumblrs. We want to make sure no one misses seeing any of them. Some artists even arrange commissions through their websites so be sure to check those out as well.

Check out this Galactus sketch Philip Tan posted on his Facebook page. We don't see enough Galactus.

Paolo Rivera posted a Captain America commission on his blog as well as a link to the Hero Initiative eBay auction for his cover to THE WALKING DEAD #100. It sold for $1231.00!

Phil Noto posted a sketch of Storm on his Tumblr. He also has a pinned post with his convention schedule and commission rates.

Gene Gonzales is getting ready for HeroesCon in June and posted another cover sketch which is for sale on eBay.

Peter Nguyen posted a Doctor Strange sketch on his Tumblr.

Terry Dodson was recently at Big Wow and posted another commission on his Deviant Art Page.

Sean "Cheeks" Galloway posted a Robin commission on his Deviant Art Page.

Joel Gomez posted a sketch of Dream and Black Adam and Isis on his Tumblr.

Eric Canete posted some recent commissions from a convention on his Tumblr.

Mahmud Asrar posted some sketches on his Tumblr.

Robert Atkins posted a couple G.I. Joe convention sketches along with a Flash Thompson/Venom sketch on his blog.

Dustin Nguyen is getting ready for Summer. It might actually be meant for the Summer edition of BATMAN: LI'L GOTHAM but check out the Aquaman posted on his Tumblr. He also found a Damian Wayne sketch he did before.

Ryan Stegman posted several commissions fro Cherry Capital Con on his Tumblr. As great as his Spider-Man is, it's a joy to see him get to draw other characters.

Todd Nauck apparently had another great con. At Phoenix Comicon he did a lot of sketches. He posted a bunch on his Tumblr. They're not all posted here so be sure to check them all out over there.

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

Philip Tan's Galactus sketch is amazing and I agree we don't see enough Galactus - why is Silver Surfer always in the way? :P

Todd Nauck really captured Blue Beetle there. That Dustin Nguyen Damian is something else too.

I have to say I like how the kids wearing a superman shirt while ridding Spider-man.

Stegman's work is great as usual. But my favorite this week id Todd Nauck. His Spidey and Nightwing are great.

God damn Stegman draws an awesome Wolverine. Awesome Venom by Atkins.

And the Galactus... wow...

Edited by fables87

Love these!

Posted by nightwingnerd

Nightwing by Stegman and a Damian by Dustin man good times.

Posted by Chewish

The more I see Paolo Rivera's art, the more I wish he had done The Avengers movie poster instead of the crappy, photoshopped one we got...

Posted by slade_wilson

Ted! And Galloway's Robin is fantastic, too!

Posted by batarang614

Edited by CitizenJP

This one is pretty rad. I miss Damian. :/

Wow all those are pretty damn good.

Posted by SavageDragon

Great stuff.

Posted by RedQueen

Galactus and Daenerys are awesome :D

Posted by Timotheus316

Is that sketch of Dream or Mick Jagger?

Posted by Press Oblivion

great stuff

Edited by sweatboy

How about that! Josie and the Pussycats! I don't always admire a Dick Grayson-looking Robin (as Robin, not Nightwing. Nightwing's pretty neat) but that smirking Robin (Galloway) is cool.

Blue Beetle loved it


Posted by Grey56

Nauck is great, truly. But that Tan piece of Galactus is tough to overlook.

Posted by JamDamage

Posted by MadeinBangladesh

Posted by Ama_Sama

The Galactus sketch takes the cake for me. I can't get over all of the detail in that one piece.

I own the pencil art version of that Robin sketch by Sean Galloway, I actually just had a friend scan a hi-res version of it for Galloway to color. Cool!

Posted by lykopis

Whoever Caron is, I am insanely jealous! That Wonder Woman sketch by Nauck is incredible.
