Awesome Art Picks: Spoiler, Flash, Silver Surfer, and More

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

Each week we search for the coolest comic book art that you 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, blogs and Tumblrs. Some artists even arrange commissions through their sites. So be sure to check them out.

Last week we saw the pencils from Peter Nguyen's X-Men sketch. He posted the inked version on his Tumblr and added some more to it.

Marcio Takara posted the pencils for another pre-ECCC sketch last week on his Tumblr. Here's the inks.

Rod Reis posted some more sketches on his Tumblr.

Joel Gomez posted Marvel sketches on his Tumblr.

Todd Nauck posted some sketches on his Instagram page this week.

Ryan Stegman posted a sketch of Beast on his Tumblr.

Chris Giarrusso posted a sketch card of Sinestro on his website (it's already sold).

Mike Deodato posted some sketches on his Tumblr.

Daniel HDR posted another commission on his Tumblr.

Mike McKone posted a Wolverine commission on his Twitter page.

Gene Gonzales has been posting new sketches on his blog.

Paolo Rivera posted an X-Men sketch cover he's donating to the Hero Initiative on his blog.

Francis Manapul posted another Batman peek on his Tumblr.

Cameron Stewart posted a True Detective pic on his Tumblr.

Dustin Nguyen posted this sketch of Spoiler on his Tumblr. Here's what he said on this design:

I have a feeling a lot of people won't like this direction for her mask, but I wanted to keep it simple, avoiding the domino mask for now being I feel its more Bat-family oriented. I don't believe she’s under the bat group yet at this point, though, I could be wrong. Here’s hoping DC will use this design down the road.

He also did an exclusive sketch for Amazon and the release the LI'L GOTHAM trade.

Skottie Young posted more Daily Sketches on his Tumblr.

Mahmud Asrar posted a Storm work-in-progress and another pre-commission for his Germany tour on his Tumblr.

Yildiray Cinar posted a Flash "digital doodle" on his Tumblr.

That's it for this week. What did you think? We'll have more art next time.

Takara's is gorgeous, Reis' expressions have me particularly impressed, that Spoiler design is sick, and Asrar is impeccable.

Great work all around.

Scrolled past the Batman and had to see who was the artist. MANAPUL! Wow! Loved his run on the Flash, so I'm happy to see that his Batman looks great!

Spoiler's mask is cool, the design is AWESOME. TAKE IT DC, TAKE IT!!!

Posted by Crimsonlord53

That "new" spoiler look is just a different colored pre 52 batgirl uniform with a hooded cape and mask.

IMO at least.

And for some reason it works.

That Flash!!!

Posted by Danial79

That Spoiler costume is awesome... though I am a sucker for a purple costume. Galactus, Huntress, and Hawkeye (classic) are all favourites.

Posted by Xwraith

Two Gurren Lagann sketches in two weeks? That's awesome!

Edited by lifeboy

Yildiray Cinar should have stayed on Supergirl. I wss greatly enjoying the art he was doing on it as it fit the mode perfect. Emmanuella, who is taking over, is equally great but I wish she went to the WorldsFinest as her style fits that comic perfect and leave Yildiray where he was at on Supergirl.

That Superman/Wonder Woman in is pretty interesting.

Posted by wmwadeii

Another great week. I've also posted my deviantArt picks as well for those of you who look forward to it each week.

DC MUST use that design for Spoiler - she is bad@$$!

The more Rod Reis stuff you most the more I'm really loving his art. It's getting me excited for the book him and Kyle Higgins are doing together.

Posted by mak13131313

Great choices! Nguyen's Spoiler is awesome! Cinar's Flash is breath taking! And is it just me or does Reis' Superman/Wonder Woman look like they just got the pregnancy test results? Hahaha!

@g_man: Tell Dustin he should be confident in that design for Spoiler because it looks so damn awesome! It even looks better than the original. I hope DC takes it.

Spoiler's new design looks awesome, hope DC decides to use it!

Posted by JakeN7

Are you kidding me here Dustin Nguyen!? That is the single most reserved yet refreshing redesign of a character being reintroduced into the New 52 I've ever seen. I really hope it's used. It's so awesome!

Posted by JakeN7

@xwraith: I was confused on that. Thought it was just double posted. Either that or Takara really loves drawing Yoko in that specific pose.

The Spoiler design looks pretty awesome

Edited by NICKXH

Well, I think we all know who is the favorite this week. Dustin Nguyen's Spoiler.

Posted by TheFirstLantern

Skottie Young never ceases to amaze me. Todd Nauck man that guy is a beast. Love all of this.

X-men, spoiler, and Flash were the best this week.

Love the ares

Posted by Timotheus316

Deodato's art has gotten so good over the last few years. It looks very "meaty"? I really like it paired with the inks. I wonder if he does his own and that's why it looks so different then his previous work. Either way, I love his art.
