Awesome Art Picks: Hawkgirl, Batman, Supergirl and More

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

Each week we look all over the internet for the coolest comic book art that won't be appearing in actual comics. The reason they won't is because artists often draw sketches for fun or commissions and post them on their blogs, websites or Tumblrs. Some artists even arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out.

This weekend is FanExpo so we'll probably be seeing lots of great art coming out of there. Ryan Stegman is there and posted a few sketches on his Tumblr.

Marcio Takara has been working on pre-NYCC commissions. Here's some he posted on his Tumblr. Some are still WIP.

Here's a couple commissions Paolo Rivera posted on his blog.

Brett Booth posted a sketch of Wonder Woman on his blog last week.

Agnes Garbowska is at FanExpo this weekend (at P12). Here's some commissions she posted on her Tumblr.

Robert Atkins posted some new art on his blog. The Hawkgirl pic was colored by Simon Gough.

Tom Raney posted some sketches on his Twitter.

Peter Nguyen is also at FanExpo. He's at P83. Here's some sketches he posted on his Tumblr.

Daniel HDR is getting ready for NYCC. Here's some pre-commissions he's been working on, posted on his Tumblr.

Joel Gomez posted some more Marvel/Upper Deck Fleer Retro Sketch cards on his Tumblr.

Freddie E. Williams II posted a couple sketches on his TwitPic page. The Superman was for a guy at Kinkos and Batman for a charity auction.

Skottie Young did Spider Jerusalem for his Daily Sketch on his website.

Mahmud Asrar is also working on pre-NYCC commissions. Here's a Dejah Thoris he posted on his Tumblr. He also posted a time-lapse video.

Dustin Nguyen posted a Li'l Gotham tease on his Tumblr.

Chris Giarrusso posts fan art on his website each week. Here's a G-Man sketch by Fred Hembeck.

Todd Nauck posted some sketches on his Tumblr and Instagram. (ROM!!!)

Jim Lee is on a trip and Tweeted this "work in progress" shot. The Catwoman one he was unable to finish because the plane started descending.

Our last one comes thanks to Robert Atkins for pointing me in this direction. Jeff Wamester posted this Supergirl pic on his new site.

That's it for this week. We'll be back next time with more great art!

I miss Rom :-(

Jim Lee can draw on a plane? I can barely hold a can of soda... But really, could you imagine sitting next to him on that plane? Watching the genius at work... probably the shortest flight ever.

Peter Nguyen is absolutely amazing. I met him a couple of years ago at Perth Supanova and bought two pieces of his artwork and it is well worth the money. Just waiting for some money so I can get it framed and then they'll take pride of place in my bedroom.

Meh.. None really stood out to me...

Wow this was interesting Tony @g_man, there's often a lot of Legion of Superheroes art considering it's ending next week.

Digging Booth's Wonder Woman. They should use his updates more often.

Edited by longbowhunter

We always see a lot of Batman and Spider-Man here. Seeing Jack Knight and Dexter really made me happy.

Edited by TheManInTheShoe

The Jim Lee ones are great.

Posted by iaconpoint

Awesome pics as usual. Someone give Marcio Takara a book! And can we please get Wonder Woman into a battle skirt as her regular costume? It looks so much more regal than the hot pants.

Awesome stuff as ever and its always nice to see a Hellcat pic!

Posted by lifeboy

The supergirl is the best. The booth Wondy kicked butt also. Ryan Stegmans spidey is cool too; is spidey wearing toe socks in that? Also the bird girl with the 'G' on her belt and agnes' s spidey also.

This should be her look in the comics. I love the warrior skirt.

Posted by Akindoodle

OMG!!! The original birds!!! :D

Posted by RulerOfThisUniverse

Great art!

Edited by lifeboy

That is the least sexiest picture of Dejah I have seen. Leave it to mud asra to foul it all up. I'm glad he moved to marvel. Maybe dc can get Sami Basri back on Supergirl.

Where's Kevin Wada's beautiful piece of DC Fashionistas starring Vixen, Wonder Woman and Zatanna!?

Booth draws the perfect Wonder Woman

Posted by theOVOXO

Don't normally like Booth's art, but that Wonder Woman rocks.

Posted by DocFishstick

Brett Booth always nails it

Tom Raney has always been one of my favorites, but he's really stepping it up above the high level I've grown to expect. And it never ceases to amaze me how many diverse styles Freddie Williams II can pull off.

Edited by G-Man

@queenfrost_: Good question. I've never been to his blog or site or knew he had one. I've often asked for people to suggest pages if they're not being included here. Heck, Robert Atkins, even suggested another artist's blog that just started.

Loved seeing Lady Blackhawk. Lots of great Wonder Woman too.

Edited by Shallbecomeabattoo

I am so conflicted about Supergirls current costume. On one hand it looks great and is almost the sexiest superhero costume out there. On the other hand, its almost too sexy to not be a parody.

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

Spider Jerusalem and The Spirit are freaking great

Posted by HeraldofGanthet

@pokeysteve: Loved seeing Lady Blackhawk. Lots of great Wonder Woman too.

Not to mention all the love for the Legion of Superheroes this go round.

Posted by terror_shark

Jim Lee's Wonder Woman is my favorite.

Posted by TheHeat

Jim Lee's WW > Booth's WW.

Why can't Booth draw a nose properly? That annoys the hell out of me.

Posted by TDK_1997

The Spider Jerusalem one is freaking amazing.

Posted by xkoenig

Peter Nguyen does a lot of Marvel on these postings, but he's done very little actual work for them. Personally I find his art very beautiful - I'm sure there's somewhere he could go. Other than that it's always a joy to see new Jim Lee art, Brett Booth and Ryan Stegman are awesome too.

Posted by apg103

I agree, I liked the warrior looking wonder woman holding the Medusa head.

The Green Lantern/Legion guy looks pretty awesome. my favorite one

Posted by The Stegman

Booth's WW..phew. I've always Said it,

Warrior skirt>>>star spangled panties

Edited by batmannflash

Wow. Just wow. great art.

Dang Jim Lee is awesome.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Too much greatness! Can't pick, so by default I'll just say Freddie Williams' Superman wins it this week for me!

Posted by Decept-O

Just incredible all around.

Posted by reaperOnyx

I love the wonder woman pics

This reminds me how much I miss Star Man

Same here as according to the New 52, Jack Knight cannot have existed. And even if he did, his entire relationship with his father the original Starman is shot to hell and back as superheroes have only existed for 5 years.............................. I HATE IT!!!! I HATE IT WITH THE WHITE HOT INTENSITY OF A BILLION SUNS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by Miss_Garrick

This reminds me how much I miss Star Man

Me too. But at least he got a happy ending.

Posted by CrazyScarecrow

I love that Zatanna by Marcio Takara! Best Art Pick of the week!

Posted by Trainge45
