Awesome Art Picks: Teen Titans, Spider-Man, Donna Troy and More

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

Every week we search high and low for the greatest comic book art that won't appear in actual comics. The reason for this is artists often draw sketches for fun or commissions and post them on their websites, Tumblrs and blogs. Some artists even arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out for more information.

Clay Mann was at Motor City Comic Con and did a Psylocke and Angel commission he posted on his Tumblr.

Francesco Francavilla posted this Batman sketch on his blog. He auctioned it off with the proceeds going to help victims of the storm in Oaklahoma. Looks like it went for $550.

Phil Noto posted a couple of the ladies in UNCANNY X-MEN on his Tumblr.

Todd Nauck will be at Phoenix Comicon this weekend. Check out the sketches he posted on his Tumblr. He will be doing a "Sketch Retweet Contest" on Twitter. Follow him (@ToddNauck) and retweet his con sketches he posts over the weekend. One lucky retreater will win a sketch of their own.

Skottie Young posted a few sketches on his site. He also mentioned he'll have a 100 page book featuring his daily sketches coming soon!

Freddie Williams II posted several new sketches on his TwitPic page. I have to admit I'm intrigued by third pic of Cassandra Cain as Kasumi.

Adam Kubert posted a couple more "quick" warm up sketches on his Tumblr.

Yildiray Cinar is headed to Wizard World Philly and posted some pre-show commissions on his Instagram.

Tom Raney also was at Motor City last weekend and posted a couple on his Twitter page.

Marcio Takara posted some more sketches on his Tumblr page.

Tony Daniel will be at Heroes Haven in Tampa, Flordia this weekend. Check out the sketches he posted on his Instagram.

Gene Gonzales has another sketch cover for sale on eBay. Check out his blog for more sketches.

Sean "Cheeks" Galloway posted a great Teen Titans Go! sketch on his Deviant Art Page.

Terry Dodson posted a couple sketches from Big WOW (last weekend) on his Deviant Art Page.

Ale Garza was at Motor City Comic Con last week and posted some of his commissions on his Instgram. Tell me this doesn't make you want to see Donna Troy return to comics.

Ryan Stegman was also at Motor City Comic Con last week and posted more sketches on his Tumblr. Look, it's another Donna Troy! And check out Spider-Man 2099. We'll be seeing more of him soon!

Chris Giarrusso always cracks me up. If you've ever talked to him or read his books, you already know this. Remember that Rob Liefeld Levi's commercial from the 90s? Chris posted a parody of the commercial on his website.

Here's the original if you haven't seen it.

And here's a sketch of Princess Roja (her name is not "Red Girl"!) and Princes Nila of the Color Guardians, seen in the pages of G-MAN. The art was used in the 'commercial' when Domino was supposed to appear.

That's it for this week. With more shows happening this weekend, we should be expecting more great fresh art next week.

Man, Psylocke and Angel made such a good couple. Critical praise for volume one of Uncanny X-Force be darned, Marvel screwed up a really good thing by dissolving that relationship in the early 2000's. I've never trolled in my life, but for now, I'll make an exception--a very classy exception. You brought this on yourself, current Marvel administration:

Funny how Adam Kubert's "quick" warm up sketches are better than his proper work.

Cool to see Ryan Stegman draw a diffrent character other than just Spider-Man all the time. Not that's a bad thing. Just like to see a bit more variety from an artist who is tatented.

Imo this is hands down the best week of art. Tony D art!

Posted by Timotheus316

Beautiful beautiful stuff! So many talented artists out there. LOVE comic books. Hot damn! Thanks for the pics G-man.

Posted by knightofthechronicle

Rob Liefeld had a Levi's commercial?!

Art looks good here, really enjoyed Ale Garza's Batman drawings, really cool (though his Mera didn't leave much to the imagination if you catch my drift)

Seeing those pics makes me miss Donna Troy so much! :( I really liked the artwork on Cassumi as well.

Edited by Danial79

I would totally start reading FF if Marcio Takara was drawing it.

Posted by kartron

Treat to the eyes! Yes that pic sure makes me wanna see Donna back

Man, I don't know if I'm in the minority or not, but for some reason I feel like I am-- I freakin' love Grant Morrison/Tony Daniels' Joker.

Rob Liefeld, the Michael Bay of the Comic Book world

It must be pretty damn cold in Atlantis, Mera's straight nippin'.

Posted by The_Vein

That Mera picture is a little.... nipply.

Another knockout week for Feddie Williams II, Ale Garza delivered some great stuff too. Marcio Takara has some cool stuff, Tom Raney and Clay Mann are always good as well. My favorite this week has got to be Skottie Young Hellboy though.

Loving that Phil Noto Emma Frost.

Edited by BaneStrokeLoboGrundyBatArrow

Those were great!

Edited by spidermonkey2099

Love these art posts. All of the art posted is great. My favorites are probably the first one of Psylocke and Angel, Donna Troy, Darkseid, Cinar's X-Men pics, the one with Spidey, Cloak, and Dagger, and the various Batman pics throughout.

Posted by LifePool

The AvX Wolverine cover was probably my favorite, though I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy the Mera picture, lol.

Posted by 4donkeyjohnson

Mera is...well, different :)

Posted by judasnixon

Please Pleas Please put Phil Noto on Uncanny X-Men! Get him out of the Thunderbolts........ Oh my god i want to hug his Magik!

Edited by YoungJustice

You'd think Mera would be adjusted to sea temperature...

Posted by EvilPenguin543

Those Donna Troy pictures make me think something is planned for her...

Posted by Smurfboy

Awesome artworks. Love 'em all.

Edited by RedheadedAtrocitus

Ale Garza's classic Donna Troy FTW.

Posted by PhoenixoftheTides

Angel's wings look a bit too short.

Posted by dcd747

@evilpenguin543: I wish, but sadly, I don't think so. Those were both my commissions from Motor City - I'm just living in the good old days. :P

Clay Mann and Phil Noto. Just fantabulous on top of increditastic! <3
