Awesome Art Picks: Harley Quinn, Batman, Loki and More

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

Each week we search high and low for the coolest comic book art that won't actually be appearing in comics. The reason they won't is because artists often draw sketches for fun or commissions and post them on their websites, blogs and Tumblrs. Some artists even pre-arrange commissions so be sure to check out their sites for more information.

Todd Nauck posted a couple #WakeUpAndDraw sketches on his Tumblr. Several comic pros contributed original art to be auctioned off by the Hero Initiative to help legendary creators in need. He also posted a Booster Gold and Raphael sketch on his Instagram.

Gabriel Hardman posted his NYCC commission rates on his blog. You can also contact him for more information.

Freddie E. Williams II posted this Flash sketch that's up for auction for the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund on his TwitPic page. It sold for only $128.05! You can find more info on the auction and the CBLDF HERE.

Chris Burnham posted his #WakeUpAndDraw sketch on his Twitter page. Here's an interesting take on the Bat-franchise. It's a Bat-Manticore.

Ryan Stegman posted some more sketches on his Tumblr (from FanExpo).

Paolo Rivera posted this Loki sketch on his blog. I love how he captured his essence. He also drew Cap for #WakeUpAndDraw.

Humberto Ramos Tweeted this Black Cat image earlier this week.

Mahmud Asrar posted a couple pre-show commissions for NYCC on his Tumblr. Check out his Night Girl and Laurel Kent.

Daniel HDR is getting ready for NYCC also. He's been working on pre-convention sketches and posting them on his Tumblr. Here's a couple finished ones and a bunch of (cool looking) work-in-progress sketches.

Agnes Garbowska was just at FanExpo last week and is getting ready for Baltimore next week. Here's a sketch she posted on her Tumblr (where you can also find the rest of her schedule).

Clay Mann posted some more sketches from FanExpo on his Tumblr as well.

Joel Gomez posted some sketches on his Tumblr.

Here's the second Raphael sketch this week. Michael Walsh posted this one on his Tumblr.

Joe Jusko posted this Thing for #WakeUpAndDraw on his Twitter.

Peter Nguyen posted some more art from FanExpo on his Tumblr.

Ryan Ottley is getting ready for Baltamore and also posted a #WakeUpAndDraw sketch on his Tumblr.

Marcio Takara is working on pre-NYCC commissions. Here's some posted on his Tumblr (where you can also find commission info). Last week we saw the pencils for his X-23 commission. Here's the inked version.

That's it for this week. We'll have more great art next time.

Ok, I am all over Bat-Manticore. DC, you want me reading your stuff again? Then make that a thing.

Honorable mention: The cats in the background of Agnes Garbowska's sketch made me laugh!
