Awesome Art Picks: Link, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man and More

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

It's no secret we really love great art. Each week we search for the coolest comic book art that you won't see in actual comics. The reason you won't see them there is 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 for more information.

Todd Nauck is a great guy and just one of the things I dig about him is his love for 80s X-Men. Check out his Wolverines, Psylocke and Jean Grey, along with a video he shot drawing Jean, posted on his Tumblr and Instagram and YouTube Channel.

Marcio Takara is a guy DC needs to put on an ongoing title. He posted several early sketches on his Tumblr.

It's always great to see Adam Kubert's art. Check out this Spider-Man sketch he posted on his Tumblr.

Agnes Garbowska posted on her Tumblr that she'll be at TCAF this weekend. She also posted some a Rocket Raccoon and Nova commission from C2E2.

Joel Gomez posted a couple sketch covers he did on his Tumblr.

Peter Nguyen posted this Spider-Man/Mary Jane sketch on his Tumblr this week.

Skottie Young posted several colored sketches on his website this week.

Paolo Rivera posted this Deathlok commission on his blog. I constantly say you should check out his site for his 'Wacky Reference Wednesdays' post so you can check out his process. He also posted various stages of his AVENGING SPIDER-MAN cover.

Gene Gonzales posted a pre-HeroesCon sketch of Supergirl on his blog.

Mike Mayhew posted a link to a Spider-Man/Green Goblin commission on his Twitter.

Check out this sketch Dustin Nguyen posted on his Tumblr. He said it's his daughter when she was a fairy. She's a ninja now.

Terry Dodson posted a Wonder Woman commission from Supanova on his Deviant Art Page.

Check out the Batman and Spider-Man sketches Rafael Grampa posted on his Instagram.

It's always great seeing Cheeks Galloway's interpretation on characters. Check out his Deadpool, posted on his Deviant Art Page.

Freddie Williams II posted a bunch of new art on his TwitPic page. I didn't even post it all here. Head over there to see more.

And that wraps up another installment. Hope you enjoyed all the great art. Everyone here deserves a round of applause. We'll have more next week.

Weird the only one I like is spiderthor.

The Link one is adorable.

Freddie Williams II being featured on this site so much was what spurred me to commission a piece from him in Chicago. He is simply amazing!

Edited by tximinoman

I usually don't like Agnes Garbowska work, but this week's Nova/RocketRacoon thing made it for me.

Also, I didn't knew who Rafael Grampa was and he is awesome.

Edited by sinestro_GL

Lando, Link, Darth Maul, Michaelangelo, Ben Kenobi and Barry were all great this week.

As always...oh Kara.

But my favourite this week is definitely TED! I miss that guy.

Dig the Rafael Grampa pics too. Thinking about getting his Batman B&W statue now.

Edited by phoenix654

Skottie Young Legend of Zelda pic is definitely my favorite this week.

Posted by Miss_Garrick

Even though I usually can't stand Skottie Young,

this and the Calvin & Hobbes are great. BTW, my sister got Mr. Dee Williams' autograph at Emerald City Comic Con earlier this year.

I don't think Dustin Nguyen's daughter was ever a 'ferry', though she was probably a fairy.

Edited by dondave

Isn't Marcio Takara the artist on the Flash?

Spidey Thor!! and that deadpool was FANTASTIC!!

Edited by dngn4774

I loved Nguyen's Spiderman, the Supergirl pic, and the Riddler sketch. I don't think the world is ready for SpideyThor yet.

Posted by Donovan Montgomery

Edited by Barkley

Why does spiderthor seem better than Superior spider-man?

Posted by Yung ANcient One

Totally CRASH! ( + )

Posted by Icon

Good stuff, especially all the X-Men ones.

Posted by kid Apollo

i cant be the only person who would love to see Skottie Young do a Legend of Zelda series. that would be awesome

Posted by Norusdog

"awesome" is subjective. While better than anything I could do..not impressed by many of these really.

Posted by CitizenJP

Love this one

Edited by Deathwing1264

Love all the spidermen, michelangelo, and darth maul

Posted by Hichael

These are great, thanks Tony!

Posted by ScumDestroy

Rafael Grampa needs to get on a DC or Marvel book asap!! I would buy it no matter what it was or who was writing it, the dude is that good.

Anything I should check out that is pretty cool or his art totally kills it? I have only seen sketches and pin ups, never read a book he did interiors for.

Yes, yes, yes, yes. Miss you two a ton.

This! Exactly this!

Posted by DonFelipe

Mostly boring except for a few Skottie Youngs, Deathlok and...

The Mightily Superior Spider-Thor.

Posted by ohanaman

Skottie Young sketches for the win this week. Brilliant.

Edited by BiteMe-Fanboy

I love that Link pic. That has now become my Facebook cover photo.

Edited by VercingetorixTheGreat

Yes, yes, yes, yes. Miss you two a ton.

Posted by VaizD

Yes, Calvin. Yes, we do. Desperately.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus
