Each week it is our pleasure to hunt down and present to you the coolest comic art on the internet. This is stuff by comic book creators but you won't see these pieces in actual comics. Artists often draw for fun or do commissions and post them on their blogs or Twitter accounts. Because they are too good to be missed, we do our best to find all the great sketches and present them to you.

Phil Noto is an artist that makes drawing look easy. Whenever he post sketches on his Tumblr, they're always amazing. Check out his sketch of Betsy and Logan.

== TEASER ==

Looks like Phil's been watching the Sherlock Holmes show on BBC. Check out his Sherlock and Watson.

Talk about making drawing look easy, Todd Nauck cranked out a lot of art this week. On his Twitter account, he asked for suggestions of characters to draw. In a short period of time, he drew these. Check out his renditions of Machine Man, Superboy, Booster Gold, Firebreather, Impulse, Boom Boom, Colossus, Hal Jordan, Spider-Woman, Mr. Freeze and Kim Possible.

Tom Raney has been busy this week also. He posted some sketches on his Twitter page. Check out his Scarlett, Phoenix, Steampunk Captain America, the Shadow, Galactus and Luke Cage.

What about Peter Nguyen? It's obvious one of his favorite characters to draw is Catwoman. Any time he does is good for all of us. Here's the latest he posted on his Tumblr.

Chris Samnee hasn't been able to update his Tumblr too much recently due to his actual drawing commitments but it looks like he's back and not holding back. Here's his versions of Captain Marvel and Mary Marvel, the Phantom, another version of the Shadow and Supergirl.

It's always great to see Michael Walsh update his Tumblr. We definitely need to see more from him. Here's his versions of Beta Ray Bill and Ghost Rider.

The live action Akira movie might be facing delays again but check out Nathan Fairbairn's take on Shotaro Kaneda.

Dan McDaid gave us a nice take on Iron Man posted on his blog. It's an interesting design and always great to see an artist give a slightly different interpretation.

That's it for this week. Let us know what you thought of these and be sure to look for the next installment of Awesome Art Picks.

Some really great pieces here. But Phil Noto comes out on top as always. Chris Samnee has a beautiful sketch of the Phantom. I'd pay good money for that.

Phil Noto draws a perfect Betsy. I'd love to see him illustrate a Wolverine & Psylocke series.

Never thought much of Tom Raney, but this is STUNNING! Stop ruining his work with color. Woohoo Machine Man!!!

#20 Posted by Renchamp (4144 posts) - - Show Bio

That Michael Walsh stuff was awesome. And Phil Noto has stopped impressing me. Not because he sucks, but because he's always busting out classy and quality stuff.

#21 Posted by bunnieswithtophats (186 posts) - - Show Bio

Ghost Rider and Mr. Freeze <3

#22 Posted by LordRequiem (1334 posts) - - Show Bio

Fantastic work on display here. Especially love the Catwoman, Mr. Freeze, and Ghost Rider.

#30 Posted by Decept-O (7808 posts) - - Show Bio

Whoa. Tom Raney's work is exquisite. Love the crisp line work, the details, the incredible use of black and white, shading, effects, anatomy and facial expressions. He seems to draw female characters spot on to boot. Very impressive! Chris Samnee likewise did an incredible job with use of black and white and chose some iconic characters I truly like. Loving The Phantom piece A LOT! Michael Walsh's pieces really stand out, especially that Ghost Rider.

Thanks again or sharing all these G-Man, it is always inspirational to see how the Pros do it!

Damn, DIGGING the old school, I really think they need to bring back the shadow based on the great art uptop, mainly the one with the smoke effect

and that captain america is tough, I wish they still did it like that
