Awesome Art Picks: Flash, Spider-Man, Starfire, and More

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

Each week we gather up the coolest comic book art 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 is busy at C2E2. Here's some recent sketches he posted on his Tumblr and Instagram.

Mike McKone is also at C2E2. (Look for an interview with him later). Here's some sketches he posted on his Twitter.

Peter Nguyen will be doing the Mystery Art Challenge once again this weekend. Here's some sketches he posted on his Tumblr.

Skottie Young has also been pretty busy at C2E2 this weekend. Here's some sketches he posted recently on his Tumblr.

Ryan Stegman is also at C2E2. Here's some five-minute sketches he did and posted on his Tumblr along with a full Doctor Doom.

Philip Tan posted some new sketches on his Facebook page.

Here's a Flash commission Tony Daniel did that I was able to snap a pic of today at C2E2.

Brett Booth wasn't able to make it to WonderCon last weekend. Here's some sketches he did for the show and posted on his blog. The Flash pic was colored by his wife, Jess.

Agnes Garbowska is at C2E2. Here's a couple sketches she posted on her Tumblr.

Freddie Williams posted a couple sketches on his Twit Pic page this week.

Joel Gomez posted some new sketches on his Tumblr.

Paolo Rivera posted a couple commissions on his blog.

Gene Gonzales posted some new sketches on his blog.

Yildiray Cinar posted some sketches on his Instagram page.

Marcio Takara is also at C2E2. Here's some recent sketches he posted on his Tumblr.

Todd Nauck is also at C2E2. Of course he'll be doing the Mystery Art Challenge as well. Here's a Wolverine pic he posted on his Tumblr. He donated it for a charity art auction. More info can be found HERE.

Last week at WonderCon, we did a Mystery Art Challenge with the Winter Soldier, and a bunny. Here's the video in case you missed it earlier this week.

Here's the pics by Peter Nguyen, Joel Gomez, Todd Nauck, Ray-Anthony Height, Brian Buccellato, and Francis Manapul.

That's it for this week. You can expect another Mystery Art Challenge coming soon.

Starefire looks really pretty in those two images, and the Flash got a good helping of epic sketches. I also really really like that Stargirl, and that punk Wonder Woman is adorable.

But this is my favorite of them:

Cap Jr. Perfect :)

If only Phillip Tan's artwork looked that good in an actual comic

I got a kick out of "punk Wonder Girl".

Winter Soldier and a rabbit was funny, too.

Flash,Tiagra,Sif,,Stargirl, and Starfire


shoulda put DonnaTroy in the title, as those Starfires are not that good. But punk WG is damn fappable & that should be her costume in the New52.

I've been requesting a Phillip Tan anything black and white comic. I got my Todd Nauck on an X-man book. Maybe I'll get my Tan black and white too? Anything Mr. Tan. Anything!

How have we not seen a Powergirl Stargirl team up yet make it happen DC

Brett's Cyclops, Cap, and Wolverine looks amazing and Yildiray Cinar's Hulk looked, dare i say it, Incredible.

So....Bucky aka Winter Soldier is biting off a rabbit head suppose to be a joke on Bucky O' Hare?

All that Lady Sif art really makes me miss Journey Into Mystery :(

My concept art for what Kang the Conqueror could look like in the Avengers movie world. A super high tech/organic looking Iron Man armor. More details available in my comicvine blog.

Also here is what I drew for the art challenge, I paused the video to draw my idea without being influenced by the others. Drew it fast.

Booth's Wolverine is very reminiscent of the 90's art I used to collect. Nicely done. Phillip Tan's collection and Stegman's interpretations are also awesome.
