Awesome Art Picks: Doc Ock, Batman, Doctor Strange and More

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

Every week we like to gather up some great comic art that won't actually appear in comics. The reason they won't is because artists often draw sketches for fun or commissions and post them on their blogs, Tumblrs and Deviant Art pages. Some artists even arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out.

Skottie Young posted some sketches he did at HeroesCon on his website.

Brett Booth posted this sketch of Hawkman on his blog last week.

Daniel HDR posted some commissions on his Tumblr this week.

Ryan Stegman posted some more sketches from Las Vegas on his Tumblr this week.

Peter Nguyen added some finishing touches to his Doctor Strange piece and also posted a Nightwing sketch on his Tumblr.

Agnes Garbowska is at Ace Albuquerque Comic Expo this weekend. Here's some recent commissions she posted on her Tumblr.

Joel Gomez posted some commissions he did last week at the Las Vegas Comic-Con on his Tumblr.

Paolo Rivera posted a Nightcrawler pic colored with watercolor on his blog.

Robert Atkins posted a bunch of recent sketches including a Wingman and Redwing colored by Miguel Sequeira on his blog. Be sure to check it out for more sketches and info.

Gene Gonzales posted some more sketch covers on his blog. He's been selling them on eBay as well (Psylocke already sold).

Todd Nauck posted a bunch more sketches on his Tumblr. Be sure to head over there to see the rest!

Unfortunately that's it for this week. Some of the other usual artists didn't post any new art. I'm also technically on vacation plus I had some major computer technical problems. We'll have more great art coming in the next installment.

I don't think I really like art done on sketch cards

Hel or hela I forget what marvel has her named as is awesome.

Why post those cute versions of superheroes every week? I admit its not my cuppa, but besides that, they all look kinda the same, every week. We get it... Huge eyes and cute little limbs haha. Don't get the appeal at all outside of a Tiny Titans type book, which was admittedly a lot of fun.

I would rather see a few different artists sometimes.

I love sketch art, especially Skottie Young stuff. A lot of great X-men stuff this week too.

Posted by ptigrusmagus

Pretty good stuff. I like that Skottie Young stuff better than any of his recent covers. The Doc Strange one speaks for itself, wow I'd frame that.

Posted by mrdecepticonleader

Wow some really great work!

Stegman's Carnage is simply awesome I think!

@shallbecomeabattoo: Because everyone has different tastes. Try to keep in mind, just because YOU don't like something doesn't mean the entire wold doesn't like it.

Edited by Shallbecomeabattoo

@g_man: I know. Wasn't trying to offend you or other peoples opinion. I just wanted to point out that, in my opinion, those pics from this week are more or less the same like last week, because when you have those versions of the characters, there is only so much you can do with them. Yeah, they are cute sometimes, but I would love to see a few other styles.

I know you like 'em... you wouldn't post them so much if you didn't. I was just pleading for some rotation of the artists. There are so much more great artists out there, who deserve a spotlight, instead of repeating the same stuff each week.

Again, I love almost all the other picks you choose each week and just wanted to comment on it.

Wow, great Hawkman. If only Liefeld hadn't ruined the character for me.

Hela and Dr. Strange pics are both knockouts. Just stunning.

Also, G-Man - delegate, brother. Vacations are for vacationing.

i think Todd Nauck should just draw everything

Edited by wmwadeii

First week none of my deviantART Picks didn't match any of Comic Vine's. Wish Agnes and Skottie would post more on their deviantART pages, hard for me to follow Twitter, Tumblr, Blogs, etc for everyone.

Posted by G-Man

@shallbecomeabattoo: And I'm not trying to knock your personal tastes either. But it'd almost be like saying we don't need to see someone like...Todd Nauck each week because he usually draws in the same style. I also gather up new art from the week. If other artists aren't posting new art on their blogs, I can't add more art from other artists.

No amount of artwork can ever make Hawkman look good.

Doctor Strange and Hawkman are boss

Posted by Ama_Sama

Hawkman was the best piece of the week. I do have to give a nod to the comedic touch on the Mr. Freeze piece though.

Posted by Shallbecomeabattoo

@g_man: Yeah I guess you are right, there are certain artists I don't mind seeing every week, so its a lot about personal taste. I tried looking around for recent stuff from guys I really love, to give you examples of artists that I would love to see here, but a lot of comic artist greats don't have a tumbler or site that gets updated frequently, like Frank Quitely for example. So, yeah, its not as easy as I thought it would be to feature more different guys and gals.

In the end I cannot complain. This feature entertains me every week, even if I don't like the cute drawings that much, so thanks for that!
