Awesome Art Picks: Psylocke, Batman, Dr. Strange and More

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

Here comes your weekly installment to the best comic book art that won't appear in actual comics. The reason they won't is because artists often draw sketches for fun and commissions and post them on their blogs, Tumblrs and websites. Some artists also pre-arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out for more information.

Todd Nauck continues to post several great sketches week after week. Here's just some of what he posted on his Tumblr and Instagram. You can also bid on his WALKING DEAD Hero Initiative cover HERE.

Joel Gomez drew a great Krypto sketch on his Tumblr.

Michael Walsh is busy drawing X-FILES SEASON 10 but he still found time to post some commissions on his Tumblr.

Marcio Takara's commission list is open. Head over to his Tumblr for more information. Check out his Stephanie Brown commission as well as a couple previously posted pieces with colors he added "for fun."

There's been some Doctor Strange rumblings lately. Ron Salas posted a character redesign on his site he did for Project: Rooftop at HeroesCon.

Marcus To was recently at One Million Comix and posted these sketches on his Tumblr.

Gene Gonzales posted a couple new sketches over on his blog.

Mahmud Asrar posted several new sketches on his Tumblr this week.

Agnes Garbowska was at Ace Albuquerque last weekend. Here's a couple commissions she did and posted on her Tumblr. Her next convention is SDCC!

Paolo Rivera will be at Supercon. He posted some recent commissions on his blog.

Check out this Snake Eyes pic Robert Atkins posted on his blog.

Daniel HDR posted some commissions from MultiversoComicon on his Tumblr.

Chris Giarrusso posted a few different things on his website this week. First is a picture for an auction for the American Librarian Association. Next is a team up pic of G-Man (no relation) and Action Cat and Adventure Bug from AW YEAH COMICS and a Thing sketch card. Chris also posts fan art on his page. Here's some 'adult' versions of his characters by Mark Ninness.

Peter Nguyen posted a couple sketches on his Tumblr. The Young Avengers piece is a work-in-progress.

That's it for this week. Rest assured, we'll have loads more in the next installment.

Love the Nauck's Terra, I picked it last week for my deviantART picks. This week I also picked the Takara's Black Cat & Captain Marvel along with Nguyen's Young Justice.

Super Kirby is awesome M'kay. They should make a whole series of these with other Superheroes powers.

Peter Nguyen, perfect as usual!

That Doc Strange was awesome, though there is a disturbing lack of the Eye of Aggamoto

Peter Nguyen, Mahmud Asrar and Marcus To are BOSSES... already following them on tumblr and the Dr. Strange redesign is wonderful, so actual and yet so close to the classic.

I allways liked British Psylocke over Asian Psylocke ( & white Jubilee over asian Jubilee) I wonder why Jim Lee changed her.
