Awesome Art Picks: Supergirl, Spider-Man, Nightwing and More

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

Each week we search high and low all over the internet to find some of the coolest comic art out there. The reason you won't see this art is because artist often do commissions or posts sketches on their blogs, Twitter pages or Tumblr accounts. They are simply too wonderful to go unnoticed.

Mike Mayhew sometimes posts commissions on his Twitter but it turns out he's also posting some commissions for sale over at Comic Art Fans. You might want to check back as some of these are already sold but look how amazing they are. This first is a 11x14 watercolor pic of Jean Grey.

== TEASER ==

Check out Mike's Supergirl (New 52), the Shadow and a cover reproduction of X-Men #50 (1968).

Mike also did this cover sketch of Vampirella. What if she did join the Avengers?

Can we agree that we need more Marcus To art? Here's a couple sketches he posted on his Tumblr of Nightwing and Robin (Damian).

Skottie Young has been posting more Daily Doodles on his site and they are for sale. Obviously they're one of a kind each time he posts so you have to be quick if you want to own one. Check out his Brobee from Yo Gabba Gabba, Earthworm Jim, Invader Zim and Mario.

Tom Raney posted some more sketches on this Twitter. Check out his Hellboy (seen here without color), Stormwatch and Jocasta.

Michael Walsh keeps putting up several sweet sketches each week on his Tumblr. Check out his Captain Cold, Spider-Man and Michaelangelo.

Did you read this week's issue of CAPTAIN AMERICA & BUCKY? Well, here's a rendition of the two courtesy of Nathan Fairbairn posted at ComicTwart.

Philip Tan updated his Tumblr with a sketch/painted version of the Abomination. When was the last time he looked so good?

Here's an artist that was suggested last week (thanks sdunham818!). Robert Atkins posted several sketches of the Justice League of America. It's nice to see the pre-New 52 versions again. He put up a couple versions of Green Arrow, Plastic Man, Vixen and Etrigan.

Finally, we have a couple from Phil Noto's Tumblr. I just found out he's doing an upcoming issue of UNCANNY X-FORCE. That's going to be insane. Check out his X-23 and Sharon Carter.

That's it for this week. Hope you enjoyed the selection. Feel free to p.m. or e-mail me if you discover any sweet pics from comic artists and feel they deserve to be featured.

Gotta love a Fugazi shirt in any pic, but my favorites are the Hellboy, Captain Cold, and Killer Croc.

The Shadow two art picks in a row, cool

Posted by Lvenger

Mike Mayhew's watercolours of Jean and Supergirl are absolultely beautiful. He really knows how to use watercolour art to its fullest. The deep colours and poetic facial expressions make for some lovely pictures.

Vampirella seems doing something naughty here...

Posted by KainScion

the one with cap and sharon is soooo good. its feels so real, really lifelike.

Posted by longbowhunter

Love seeing X-23 in the Fugazi shirt. That Skottie Young Earthworm Jim is really cool too. Not overly familiar with Michael Walsh but someone needs to put him on a crime series.

Posted by SpidermanWins

WOW all fantastic artwork.

Edited by pingclang

Those bottom 2 pieces by Atkins are great and the Cap and Sharon picture is an amazing "moment in time" piece. The pieces Mayhew did were just mind-boggling. Thanks for posting.

I'm loving the Mario and Hellboy.

LOL Or it looks like she just did something naughty. The black and white contributes to that thought.

Such fantastic art!

I wish I could get hypnotized and have whatever part of the brain that allows for this kind of talent to be switched on...

Awesome pics!!

Edited by Decept-O

I love Tom Raney's style and his inks are incredibly impressive. Just "wow" every time I see his work.

Just as incredible are The Shadow and Robert Atkins' Green Arrow andEtrigan pieces, along with the Skottie Young work. The Michael Walsh Capt. Cold is fantastic, really conveys the "icy" feel of that villain perfectly! Philip Tan's Abomination is powerful and Marcus To did a great job with Nightwing and that twerp Damian! The artwork by Raney of Jocasta is great and I believe user Hawkeye446 will dig that one a lot!

I really enjoy each one here goes without saying but I love seeing all the artists' work every Saturday.
