Awesome Art Picks: Maleficent, Batman, Cyclops, and More

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

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

Francesco Francavilla has been posting new art on his Tumblr and putting them up for sale on his online shop.


Gabriel Hardman posted a couple new pieces on his Twitter page. The X-Men cover is up for auction on eBay for the Hero Initiative. Still a couple days left!


Peter Nguyen posted a few new sketches on his Tumblr including more X-Men goodness.


Paolo Rivera posted a Daredevil commission on his blog.


Yildiray Cinar posted some more sketches on his Instagram page.


Reilly Brown is getting ready for the New York show in June and posted this Deadpool sketch on his Tumblr.


Brett Booth is making up for not posting new sketches on his blog last time with a few new cool ones.


Ryan Stegman posted some recent commissions from Cherry Capital Comicon on his Tumblr.


Skottie Young is ready for Maleficent. He also posted some other new sketches on his Tumblr.


Joel Gomez will be at Long Beach Comic Expo this weekend. Here's a couple sketches he posted on his Tumblr.


I love seeing new sketches from Ryan Ottley's on his Tumblr.


Philip Tan never ceases to amaze with the sketches he posts on his Facebook page.


Agnes Garbowska posted a work-in-progress sketch of Buffy on her Tumblr.


Denis Medri posted a couple new sketches on his Deviant Art page.


J. Scott Campbell posted a sketch of Belle from Dallas Comic Con on his Instagram page.


Marcio Takara posted some new commissions on his Tumblr.


Dustin Nguyen posted this Maleficent piece on his Tumblr that was apparently unused by Disney? What? He also posted some Harley's and a Harper sketch.


Todd Nauck will also be at Long Beach Comic Expo this weekend. Check out his recent sketches posted on his Tumblr. You can info on his panel and commission rates HERE.


That's it for this week. Hopefully we'll get a Mystery Art Challenge done this weekend. We'll be back next time with more sketches.

All of these kick ass comic characters here. I feel bad for liking that Belle the most. It's beautiful in such a simple way.

Posted by Battle_Forum_Junkie

Very nice art this week. In fact I think I'll do a little sketching myself...

Edited by MannEffest

That Godzilla is fantastic, very nice work there as usual by Brett Booth! AND HOT DANG, so much child-hood nostalgia with that Belle by Campbell! I love it! It's not the most involved but it has such a sweet innocence to it… well, compared to other Campbell drawings ^_^

@pokeysteve: And don't feel bad at all, sometimes the simplest things can be the best!

Edited by staypuffed

Brett Booth's sketches are infinitely better than his stuff DC publishes (his recent work on the Flash has been terrible). They are always fantastic.

Posted by SpitfirePanda

Awesome pics! I loved Godzilla and Yoda.

Posted by Akindoodle

@staypuffed: I was thinking the exact same thing. Sometimes his faces look a bit off but his details are beautiful. I usually think his stuff is excellent.... And then it gets coloured....

Posted by fables87

I liked the Mystique one.

Booth and TV Flash and Godzilla.....just made my day

Rogue being my favorite comic book heroine and Nauck being one of my favorite artists, I must say, her face looks a bit too cartoon-ish for my taste. But it's a great drawing otherwise. And Booth's art is great considering his early work looked a bit too much like Jim Lee. His stuff is awesome these days. Philip Tan just continues to take my breath away with his black and whites. I may need to "like" his Facebook page.

I noticed that too! Maybe it's the inker or colorer? His genius with a pencil could get lost along the way somewhere.

Edited by Ms-Lola

I love every image, Ororo's standing out the most by Cinar followed closely by Nguyen's Raven. Beautiful.

My immediate thought was "Dat a$$" followed quickly by "Didn't Booth do another epic butt shot in the actual book? Yep:

Posted by tparks

@clayscarface: Lol. Brett Booth sure does like drawing Dick's booty.
