Awesome Art Picks: Thing, Fantastic Four, Iceman and More

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

Time again for some of this week's coolest comic book art that you won't see in comics. Why won't you see them in comics if they're so cool? Artists often do sketches and pictures for fun when they're not working on their actual comic book assignments. They'll post them on their Tumblrs, blogs, Twitters, etc.

Our first comes from the amazing Skottie Young.

I didn't realize he had started doing a Daily Doodle on his website. What could be cooler than that image above of the Thing? How about being able to own it? Actually, this doodle is already sold. What Skottie is doing is posting the images and offering them for sale in his online store. A great way for you to pick up some original Skottie Young art, if you're quick enough.

== TEASER ==

Here's some more from Skottie.

I've heard people compare Apocalypse to Darkseid before. Check out Dustin Nguyen's version of Darkseid. Who would win?

Practically every week we can count on Phil Noto to deliver some sweet drawings. He's been pretty busy this week.

The Iceman image was an unused Iceman Origins cover. What? That's crazy. The second image is more insanity. It's an unused cover for Superboy #4. The sketch of X-23 was a result of Marjorie Liu and Gail Simone's friendly banter via Twitter with each other over which character was better, X-23, Batgirl or Black Canary. The final image is a friendly poke at DC. Phil does wish them luck with the relaunch.

But wait, there's more.

It's another one of Phil's 1960s images that needs to be collected with his other ones.

Do we have any Doctor Who fans in the house? Francesco Francavilla is a big fan. Each week as a new episode airs, he plans on doing a spoiler free 20 minute poster. This one was for the "Let's Kill Hitler" episode.

Peter Nguyen decided to give Jubilee some attention on his Tumblr.

What's up with his "Age of Jubilee"? His reasoning was, "A lot of X-Men have been touched by Apocalypse. I felt Jubilee was always being left behind again."

And finally, last week we had a few pictures from Cameron Stewart. Here's one more of the Red Skull from his Tumblr.

If you missed any of our previous editions, go up to the search bar, filter it to articles and type in "Awesome Art." You'll see a selection of past articles. Be sure to look for another installment next week.

That Cloak is pretty epic, I've been a fan of Scottie's since he started out, extremely talented guy.

I think that the greatness that these pics transmit, is gonna increase the size of all of my bloodcells to be 10 times bigger, thus causing my death. Curse you, awesome artists.

Ascended Jubilee is awesome.! That Iceman pic by Phil Noto wins my desktop though.

Skottie Young has entertained me on a almost a daily basis for years now with his random sketches.  His evolution as an artist is amazing.

Pretty cool selection this week

Posted by Aiden Cross

Awesome selection, Pretty much love them all ^_^ Especially Young's art =)

Posted by DoomDoomDoom

Noto is amazing. I love signing into CV and seeing an article with his work in it on the main page! The FF and Magik ones are my favorites by far. Young's stuff was good, except for that cyclops something about it I didn't care for. The Thing looks amazing in this style reminds me of the Maxx a little.

Hmmmm, really weird artwork this week. Not my thing.
Posted by goldenkey

Apocolypse looks like something from Songe Bob.   He's soooooo good tho.

Posted by WildOrchid

X-23 is ridiculously awesome especially knowing it came about in response to the incorrigible antics of Simone & Liu.  =) 
Jubilee is fabulous.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Dustin Nguyen's Darkseid's amazing! Everything else I love too. Awesome picks! :)

Posted by _Zombie_

This has to be my favorite installment so far, Noto delivered some pretty awesome art once more.  Especially the one making fun of Supes' costume. xD

Cool stuff! But like I say always, lets see some art picks from stuff other then marvel and Dc, maybe image Vertigo or other independent companies. This site loves their big 2 love. Understandable but it is nice to see more of other stuff also. Like that doctor who one which was awesome by the way! And love that Iceman and 60's fantastic four pics!
