Awesome Art Picks: Moon Knight, Magneto, Bizarro, and More

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

Each week we gather up the coolest comic book art that won't be appearing in actual comics. The reason they won't is because artists often do sketches for fun and commissions. They graciously share them by posting on their blogs, Tumblrs and Twitter accounts. They are way too cool to be overlooked. Some artists even arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out.

Sara Pichelli posted some "quick con-sketches" on her Twitter page.

Ryan Stegman is getting ready for NYCC Special Edition. He has info on sketches, including prices on his Tumblr.

Cliff Chiang posted some sketches on blank variant covers from Asbury Park Comic-Con on his Tumblr.

Philip Tan posted some more sketches on his Facebook page. The last two were inked by Michael Jason Paz.

Gabriel Hardman will also be at NYCC Special Edition and posted some info on his blog.

Todd Nauck posted a bunch of sketches from Long Beach Comic Expo on his Tumblr.

Paolo Rivera posted a couple Guardians of the Galaxy on his blog.

Ray-Anthony Height posted some commissions from Long Beach on his Tumblr and Instagram. I saw him working on the Batman sketch. That cover was super-glossy. Almost too glossy to draw on.

Francesco Francavilla was posting new art on his Tumblr last month and then putting them up for sale. Here's the last one he posted.

Skottie Young posted some more Daily Sketches on his Tumblr. The Rocket pic is for this year's Heroes Con badge art.

Joel Gomez posted some more sketches on his Tumblr.

Marcio Takara posted a bunch of new sketches for NYCC Special Edition and Heroes Con on his Tumblr.

Denis Medri posted this Bizarro sketch on his Deviant Art Page.

Yildiray Cinar posted some more sketches on his Instagram.

Peter Nguyen did this Wolverine pic and posted a few stages on his Tumblr.

Check out these Rod Reis commissions he posted on his Tumblr. You know I really dig that Moon Knight! The second is Orson Welles and the last is Radia from C.O.W.L.

Check out this Zombie HeroBear sketch Mike Kunkel did at Long Beach.

Mike @AlwaysBeCorgi Huang shared his Long Beach commissions (and even brought me a can of Pringles!).

The Mystery Art Challenge at Long Beach featured Magneto. Here's the video if you missed it during the week.

Here's scans of the art:

Brian Buccellato
Ray-Anthony Height
Derek Fridolfs
Dustin Nguyen
Joel Gomez
Todd Nauck

And this isn't really a commission or a sketch but check out Declan Shalvey's pencils for a page from this week's MOON KNIGHT. He has some for sale HERE.

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

I know this sounds really generic, but this is a really good haul.

Wicked cool batch. The Moon Knight pages are looking incredibly trippy while Nauck's Mystique bust is friggin' gorgeous.

Just read the Moon knight issue today, those trippy pages were breath-taking !

Edited by AlwaysBeClothing

I really like the Sara Pichelli stuff. Todd Nauck is unreal, I don't know how he draws so incredibly in so little time.

Wishing I had brought a proper camera on the 2nd day of Long Beach Comic Expo.

Brian Buccellato - Vampire Jubilee

Peter Nguyen's Wolverine art alone is better than both Wolverine movies put together.

Sara Pichelli is pretty awesome

Posted by staypuffed

Lots of good stuff this week! Sara Pichelli, Philip Tan, Ray-Anthony Height's Magneto and Todd Nauck's Mystique are fantastic.
Never thought I'd say this, but Cliff Chiang's work looks like Frank Miller's here (particularly Power Girl and Robin).

Maybe Ted Kord could have a sidekick.
My Batman Beyond Robin idea: a non-tech suit to hone his skills.
Earth 3 Court of Owls
I had a very similar idea to what New 52 Ted Kord could look like.
Ted Kord and Powergirl's son, Power Beetle.
Earth 2's Harlequin, Alan Scott's Catwoman type

my Black suit Spidey from Nauck didn't make it? lol

Posted by Spawn92

That Todd Nauck GotG looks good enough to be the official variant cover. Also, his Mystique is amazing!
