Awesome Art Picks: Psylocke, Catwoman, Colossus and More

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

This is the moment you've been waiting for all week. Throughout the week, we gather up the best comic book art that won't ever appear in comics. The reason you won't see them in comics is because artists often do sketches for fun or commissions. It's a great way for us to see different interpretations of the characters we love. Many of the artists even arrange commissions through their websites, blogs and Tumblrs so be sure to click on the links and check them out.

Brett Booth has been busy. He posted four sketches on his blog. He sells them after he posts so you have to be on your toes to get your chance.

== TEASER ==

Philip Tan is still posting a bunch of sketches on his Facebook page. Check out the latest pieces.

Phil Noto posted a couple of the X-ladies on his Tumblr. They're looking good, as usual.

Mahmud Asrar posted a couple great sketches on both his Instagram and website.

Terry Dodson posted his FANTASTIC FOUR #600 Hero Initiative sketch on his Deviant Art page.

Paolo Rivera posted a Catwoman commission on his blog as well as a sneak peek for a WALKING DEAD sketch cover. Check out his blog for a look at how he captures different positions for his drawings.

Dustin Nguyen posted a Harley Quinn painting which he said was one part red and two parts funny. He also posted a peek at the New Year's BATMAN: LI'L GOTHAM on his Tumblr.

Chris Giarrusso has been posting a lot of his Mini-Marvels sketches and has a bunch of art for sale on his website. Some of them are already sold out so be sure to check what's available.

Skottie Young has been doing some animated TV-themed sketches on his website and offering them for sale. Again, you have to be quick to get one of these.

Todd Nauck posted some more of his art on both his Tumblr and Instagram. I love seeing that he drew Colossus in his new uniform already.

Denis Medri posted another Rockabilly Batman sketch along with one for The Hobbit on his Deviant Art page.

Gene Gonzales has been posting "Conventionless Convention Sketches" on his blog.

Joel Gomez some more sketch cards from the Beginnings line from Marvel/Upper Deck on his Tumblr along with a cool Alien.

Ryan Stegman showed us he can draw more than just Spider-Man and posted this great Ursula drawing on his Tumblr for Ashcan Allstars.

Agnes Garbowska posted more of her painted commissions on her Tumblr this week.

Michael Walsh posted a sketch for Justin Jordan's THE LEGEND OF LUTHOR STRODE on his Tumblr (someone needs to add that volume to our database!). The second issue of COMEBACK from Image drawn by Michael is on sale this coming Wednesday.

Mike Bowden posted this cool Autobots sketch on his Deviant Art page.

Peter Nguyen has been away but has returned by posting a sketch of Psylocke on his Tumblr.

That's it for this week. Hopefully the art will continue as things get hectic during the holiday season.

I'm a big Rudolph fan so that Yukon Cornielus sketch takes the cake this week, but I really like Michael Walsh's Luther Strode.

Hot Damn that Psylocke is the star of the show.

Colossus looked ace too!

So jealous of artists, hell I can barely draw blood with a needle

I wish Batman 50's Rockabilly Universe was a mini comic series! I also liked the Adventure time one.Can anyone tell me a good website to get comic art supplies? I'm looking for the comic layouts and colors, preferably in a set.

Liking Winter Storm the best!

Posted by GreenFuse

Some really great art but Winter Storm is STUNNING!

Posted by Azrael66

Storm, Psylocke, and Agnes Garbowska's work are awesome!

Am I the only one who thinks the Mini Marvel and similar pictures are just so lame, and not even close to "Awsome"?

Posted by Icon

I always love Bret Booth's stuff.

Posted by Press Oblivion

nawesome!

Yeah, I kind of feel the same way. But it's up to G-Man. He's getting the art for this feature so it's his choice for what he puts up on here. So I'm guessing he thinks the mini-marvels are awesome.

Man! This week I literally LOVED them all!

Okay, seriously.

I'm feeling more and more validated when I say that Rockabilly Batman getting a comic is just a matter of time.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Denis Medri's piece with Gandalf and Bilbo FTW, for obvious reason. But Dodson's Susan Storm art was just so...GIGGITY...

Posted by scarspider

Ben Reilly's Spider-Man costume has been the best contemporary take on the classic Spidey outfit (even better than this Superior Spider-Man version). Love Brett Booth's stuff.

Bearded Thor!  
 
The Hobbit was very nice as well.

Posted by Big_Nasty

There have been a lot of Gotham City Imposters pics lately.

Posted by Selinaky

Love the beardy Thor.

Posted by leosol

Not often you see the "sensational" spiderman costume

Posted by Cavemold

the luthor strode was my fav

Posted by hunter5024

It's my Raven commission on Comicvine! Which I only got because I heard about Agnes from Comicvine... it's like cyclical man.

Posted by mtrakos

FIRELORD!

Posted by Grey56

Bowden's Autobots surprised me but Nauck's Colossus is tough to ignore. For honorable mentions - Tan did a great job on Firelord.

Kitties galore & Betsy. ♥

Yes, I love them. I would not like the inside pages to be like that, but the occasional cover which looked like them would be in facted 'Awesome'

Seems to be a few other whiners on this site. You promote art you like on your individual sites and let the rest of us enjoy this.

If everyone felt the same exact way about all forms of art, the world would be an extremely boring place. We need variation. As for MINI-MARVELS, check out the prices they're going for. Obviously they're in demand.

Also, "AWESOME" has two e's.

Just when I thought I couldn't hate Skottie Young any more than now, he ruins a classic!!! Cripes!

Everybody else is great as usual.

I'm gonna have to use this argument the next time my friends make fun of me for buying that Raven commission up there.
