Awesome Art Picks: Magneto, Batman & Ultimate Spider-Man

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

Each week we search the internet for the coolest comic book art you won't see in actual comics. The reason you won't see this cool art in comics is because artist often do commissions or post sketches they do for fun on their blogs and Tumblr accounts. It's all simply too good to go unnoticed.

Freddie Williams II is busy cranking out some sweet art in the pages of CAPTAIN ATOM each month but he posted a bunch of art from a recent convention on this Twitter.

These should give you enough of a reason to try to track him down at the next convention he attends.

== TEASER ==

Phil Noto has updated his Tumblr with a pic of Vision & Scarlet Witch and Hellboy.

Speaking of Hellboy, Chris Samnee posted sketches of Hellboy along with Batwoman, Daredevil and the Shadow.

Todd Nauck had some time and asked, via Twitter, for a suggestion for a quick sketch. He drew and posted a pic of Wiccan.

Joel Gomez updated his Tumblr with some head sketches he did.

Michael Walsh has been busy as well. Check out his recent sketches of Princess Mononoke, Miles Morales, Link and Huntress.

While Marcus To is wrapping up the HUNTRESS miniseries, check out his sketch of Angel.

Who is the Law? Dan McDaid's blog is this week. Check out his Judge Dredd.

Rocketeer just celebrated the 20th Anniversary of the movie. Dennis Calero posted this pic on this Twitter.

Philip Tan updated his Tumblr this week. He mentioned missing doing pencils and did a sketch of the first character in the DC encyclopedia, Abra Kadabra.

That's it for this week. Be sure to check out the next installment of Awesome Art Picks.

Philip Tan misses doing pencils? What is he doing on Hawkman now??

I love that Tim Drake. Glad they gave him a blue ring. It matches him perfectly considering that he never gave up hope that Bruce was alive.

Gomez's Death is really cool. I love how Freddie added his name to the creative team on that Wolverine and the X-men cover. That made me crack up.

Some really beautiful pieces here. I'd love to have that Rocketeer piece autographed. And quite the statement from Freddie Williams II to smack Batman on the cover of Marvel's book.

Freddie Williams is wasting his talent on Capt. Atom.

Posted by TypH

Freddie's best pieces in my oprinion are his Wolverine and Capt America, they rock his batman ones are pretty sweet to though!

All these pictures are amazing. This is probably the best week I've seen so far. They're all so great, the only ones that stand out to me are The Rocketeer and the first pic w/ Connor, Kara, and Clark. Special mention goes to Michael Walsh for drawing mononoke-hime. Lastly, that wolverine looks too Feral for his new team book w/ the kids. He should have flowers coming out of where his claws would normally be or something.

Posted by feargalr

These are all real cool, though the link one in the middle is a bit random haha but still great

Posted by shawn87

Now this definitely makes up for the absence of picks last week. That Rocketeer is by far the best out of them all. But Freddie Williams is killing it too. 

Posted by Larkin1388

So much awesome art this week.

Posted by haydenclaireheroes

Really loved all the artwork this week. Great work!

Posted by kartron

Great picks! Why does many characters by Freddie have no pupils? example: electra, thor, etc?? :O In the original art they do have right?

Posted by SpidermanWins

LOVE the pictures of Link, the Blackest Night variant, and Rocketeer

Posted by Decept-O

Each one is so fantastic. Can't even begin to say which are my faves. The Daredevil use of black and white is absolutely outstanding. Loving The Shadow as well, not to forget the incredible Black Cat pieces. I want to comment about each one, I really love them ALL. Very inspirational artwork on display

Thanks for finding all these and sharing, G-Man.

Posted by cattlebattle

Most of these are crap but man can that dude freddie williams II draw. His art was the only ones truly worth posting. Some of the others were ok but nowhere on his level.
