Awesome Art Picks: Greedo, Stephanie Brown, Ninja Turtles and More

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

Every week we search for the best comic book art that won't actually be appearing in comics. The reason they won't is because artists often do sketches for fun or commissions and post them on their Tumblrs, blogs and websites. Some artists even arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out.

Vinny Navarrete is the artist on SKETCH MONSTERS. I saw him drawing the Rocketeer at Rose City Comic Con and told him he needed to post that on his Tumblr. Looks like he posted some other sketches too.

Robert Atkins loves drawing G.I. Joe characters and it shows. But that's not all he can draw. Check out the latest pots on his blog.

Brett Booth has been busy but found time to draw a sketch of Cyclops and posted it on his blog.

Marcio Takara has been working non-stop on New York Comic Con commissions. Check out the latest he posted on his Tumblr. The last pic is the prints he'll be selling. Looks like I'll be buying some.

Daniel HDR is also working on NYCC commissions. Here's some he posted on his Tumblr.

Chris Giarrusso posted a few sketches on his site. Some have been purchased already so check it out.

Peter Nguyen posted some of the pre-NYCC commissions he's done on his Tumblr.

Joel Gomez posted a couple sketches on his Tumblr that he did for fun and for a Las Vegas Comic Expo commission.

Mahmud Asrar also posted some pre-NYCC commissions on his Tumblr.

Clay Mann posted this Harley sketch on his Tumblr. Is there more to see?

Terry Dodson was at Rose City Comic Con and posted this "Batgirl Thrillkiller" commission on his Deviant Art Page.

Chances are this Gonk/Power Droid sketch Mike Mayhew posted on his Twitter will end up in an issue of THE STAR WARS. But it's pretty impressive how cool he can make the droid action figure I hated as a kid look.

Ryan Stegman posted this sketch on his Tumblr. He said he was working on a "drawing for a thing."

Todd Nauck has been busy lately. He posted a bunch of sketches on his Tumblr from Project: Comic Con in St. Louis last week.

That wraps up another installment. Be sure to check back for the next one.

Love the Mahmud Asrar pics, and the Clay Mann of Harley is HOTTT!!. Wish both artists would post more on deviantArt so I can add them to my weekly picks.

Mahmud Asur is great as usual

Todd Nauck must be a robot, or an insomniac to put out so much work EVERY week.

Marcio Takara is won me over with the Jason from G Force sketch by itself.

@wavemotioncannon: Pretty sure all of Todd's sketches are just from at a convention. He always has a huge line and watching him work is pretty cool. He's fast but you can see him still taking his time with detail.

As always, Brett Booth's work is pretty much the best. Love that Peter Nyugen Gambit, too.

Takara and Nyugen stood out this week.

Yeah! When I was a kid, I looked at it and think "Cool, a McDonalds trash container-looking robot." I was easy to entertain back then.
