Each and every week we gather up the best comic book art that you will not see in comics. The reason you won't is because artists often do sketches for fun and commissions and post them on their websites, blogs and Tumblrs. Many artists often arrange commissions through their sites so check them out for more detail if you're looking to own a cool original piece. Last weekend was Emerald City Comic Con. Some of our 'regular' artists here were there and posted some of the sketches they did. Also, in case you missed it, you'll find the video and images from the Mystery Art Challenge conducted at the con.
Dustin Nguyen took part in the Mystery Art Challenge. You'll see his sketch down below with the others. Here's a couple pics he posted on his Tumblr. Looks like he's hoping for a Li'l Gothams black and white statue.
Artists often get...interesting commission requests. Here's one that Brian Buccellato did at ECCC. I knew he wouldn't post it anywhere so I took a pic of it before he gave it to the lucky lady. I'm sure you can figure out who's in the sketch.
Earlier this week, I posted the video of the Mystery Art Challenge. Basically it involves a familiar character and a random object. The artist don't know ahead of time. You see their reaction on camera and they have seconds to decide what to draw. This challenge was Green Arrow...and coffee.
Here's full scans on the pics.
There's a good chance for another Mystery Art Challenge at WonderCon in a few weeks.
