Awesome Art Picks: Magneto, Spider-Man, Death and More

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

Each week we gather up all the incredibly spectacular comic art that will never appear in actual comic books. The reason they won't is because artists often draw sketches for fun or commissions and post them on their websites, blogs and Tumblrs. We all love comic art so we need to make sure each amazing piece is seen and admired. Some artists arrange commissions or sell original art through their sites so be sure to check them out for more information.

Terry Dodson was recently at Supanova and posted another commission on his Deviant Art Page of Death.

Peter Nguyen posted a W.I.P. sketch of Wonder Woman he's doing for a friend's mom on his Tumblr.

Skottie Young posted some more Daily Sketches on his website. He sometimes offers these for sale in his online store.

Phil Noto recently posted a bunch of sketches on his Tumblr. They may not be directly comic related but they are absolutely worth checking out.

Todd Nauck is a drawing machine. Check out this great pieces he posted on his Tumblr and Instagram.

Dave Johnson posted a couple sketches from Dallas Comic Con on his Instagram.

Adam Kubert posted this "quick" sketch for a friend's 9-year-old on his Tumblr. Imagine what he could do if it wasn't a "quick" sketch!

Michael Walsh posted a Swamp Thing and Abby commission on his Tumblr.

Rafael Grampa posted a couple amazing sketches on his Instagram this week.

Gene Gonzales has a sketch cover up for auction on eBay. There's not much time left. He also posted a Sailor Jupitor commission on his blog.

Yildiray Cinar posted a Wizard World pre-show commission on his Instagram.

Ryan Stegman is at Motor City Con and has posted a bunch of Spider-Man commissions already on his Tumblr.

Sean "Cheeks" Galloway posted this rad Magneto pic on his Deviant Art Page. He titled it "Magneto Sends His Crushing Love."

Marcio Takara has been posting a lot of W.I.P. sketches on his Tumblr. I wonder if we'll ever see the finished products.

Mahmud Asrar posted a digital sketch from Game of Thrones on his Tumblr.

Brett Booth does a lot of character designs for DC. He posted an unused Relic sketch (a new character appearing in GREEN LANTERN) and a Superman sketch on his blog.

Ale Garza posted some commissions from Motor City Comic Con on his Instagram.

Francis Manapul has been making his Instagram followers drool as he posted a step by step process of this sketch featuring Spider-Man, Batman and Hellboy.

That's it for this week. With the conventions continuing this weekend, we're bound to see a lot more great sketches pop up during the week.

ooooo I love francis manapuls last picture there. All we needed was Atomic Robo and Invincible and it would be a freaking killer picture id pay top dollar for. :D

That Relic design by Brett Booth is actually killer. I hope that it can be used for another character at some point in the future.

Great batch this week. I wouldn't dare try to pick a favorite. Pretty much no bad pieces. Even the artists I typically only barely like put up some fantastic stuff this week. :)

Booth's Relic looks soooooo much cooler than Tan's

Is it like some kind of inside artist Joke to try and draw Captain Marvel's hair in a different way then ever before?

Funny I was going to say it's the best carol's hair has looked in a long time.

Nice Superman by Booth.

Posted by Battle_Forum_Junkie
Not the best one in the bunch, but I thought it looked awesome.

Edited by longbowhunter

I'm still kicking myself for not stopping by Michael Walsh's table at C2E2. His Swamp Thing and Abby is fantastic. Nauck's Robin is worth mentioning too.

@savagedragon: IKR this is the hottest I've ever seen Black Cat.

Edited by akbogert

No competition with the last pic....epic art and characters...

Edited by RedQueen

Brett Booth is as always fantastic, but I think I'll give it to Asrar - because it's Daenerys Targaryen, and it's awesome.

Posted by knightofthechronicle

That relic design looks awesome, like it a whole lot more than the actual design they chose.

Posted by paralaxsteve

Wow what an awesome collection the superman and the Wonder Woman sketches just blew my mind

I just find it funny how every artist draws her hair so different.

Too bad Nauck is on a book I'm not reading or even interested in. Would LOVE to see him on any X-man book.
