Awesome Art Picks: Daredevil, Batgirl, TMNT and More

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

It's time once again to gather up the best comic book art that won't be appearing in actual comic books. The reason they won't is because artists often do 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 for more information.

San Diego Comic-Con is coming up and Peter Nguyen will be there. Check out his Daredevil and finished Young Avengers drawings he posted on his Tumblr.

Marcio Takara posted some recent commissions on his Tumblr. He mentioned he won't be at SDCC but has stated his commission list is open. You can email him at mtakaraart@yahoo.com for more information. I have to say, I love love loooooove his Stephanie Brown.

Skottie Young started up his Daily Sketches on his website. He often posts sketches and offers them for sale immediately. He also posted a exclusive Avengers movie poster that will be available at SDCC. The Lorax he drew as a request for his son.

Dustin Nguyen will be around SDCC…somewhere. He posted what might be sketches for Li'l Gothams on his Tumblr but I couldn't resist posting his Batgirls pic.

Mike McKone has been experimenting with coloring and has been posting some sketches on his Twitter.

Ron Salas posted this Greatest American Hero pic on his Twitter. He said he started it on the Fourth but wasn't able to finish it. Looks finished to me.

Joel Gomez posted a couple sketches on his Tumblr he did for the Creature Feature Art Show at Left Hand Black Gallery in San Diego running from July 13 to August 3.

Chris Giarrusso has been posting some sketch card pics on his website. He got some blank cards at NYCC when he was at the Topps booth and they're available for purchase on his site.

Freddie Williams II posted a bunch of new sketches on his TwitPic page this week.

Todd Nauck posted some new sketches on his Tumblr and Instagram. Check him out in action drawing Harley Quinn.

Agnes Garbowska posted some commissions from Ace Albuquerque Expo on her Tumblr. She will be at SDCC next at table HH-18.

Tony Daniel will also be at San Diego. He posted a peek at some commissions he's been working on on his Facebook page and also posted his Wonder Woman sketch on his Tumblr. The interesting thing about the WW piece is one he was working on that is going to be replaced by an action pose instead. Rather than just erase it, he decided to save it. Good thing too.

That's it for this week. SDCC is getting closer!

Wow that Nightwing by Marcio Takara is great! He would be a great fit for the book now that Brett Booth is off it. Either him or the guy who did Gates of Gotham would be awesome!

Hooray, classic Tyroc!!

I hate it when this happens. I look at Awesome Art Picks, and recognize EVERY art pic but one.

So, who is this?

All great, but I'm in love with Marcio Takara's work this week O_O

Posted by RedHood13

Marcio Takara's art is AMAZING!!

Posted by End_Boss

I think that last Wondy image is supposed to be a part of a larger "World's Finest" sketch with Batwoman. That looks like Gotham being attacked by the Hydra behind her, with what looks like Batwoman on her left and possibly Maggie Sawyer on her right.

Really like all of Marcio Takara's stuff. Also Tony Daniel's Wonder Woman sketch is gorgeous.

This seems possible. Could that be The Hook in the lower right corner too?

Not a big TMNT fan but that fan art was awesome! Loved the Kitty too!

OMG its.....

SCUD!!!!!!!!

The Disposable Assassin!!

I really loved this game back on Sega Saturn. I would ABSOLUTELY buy a mini-series illustrated by Scottie Young based around the character.

Also, the image of Steph and Cass made me grin like a fool.

Fantastic picks this week @g_man.

Posted by Cavemold

i liked the black widow one the most

Posted by ssejllenrad

I loved Marcio Takara's old style but his new style... Goshdarhdiggity! That's awesome!

Posted by IanPrime

@heraldofganthet: Thanks Brother, i've been stalking for a year or so but finally made an account.

Posted by oldnightcrawler

with the exception of the obligatory Todd Nauck, this is one of the best Awesome Art Picks in quite some time.

Especially digging the Peter Nguyen and Marcio Takara (love his work) stuff at the top, and the entries of Ron Salas, Joel Gomez, and Tony Daniel's are really great too.

Very beige this week.

I like how they say look at Nguyen's Daredevil, but his Young Avenger's is better.

Posted by dinclaus

That TMNT one was AWESOME

Peter Nguyen does really nice con sketches. I got one from him at FloridaSuperCon this week. My camera is blurry, it's much nicer than the photo. You can't see the fine detail in the here but you get the idea. If you are wondering its a character from Grendel Tales.

All the art on display, just totally wonderful. The Hulk Vs. Thor really stands out for me but everything here is great!
