Awesome Art Picks: Iron Fist, Superman, Black Widow, and More

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

Each week we search the Internet for the best comic book art that you won't see in actual comics. The reason you won't is because artists often draw sketches for fun or commissions and post them on their websites, blogs, and Tumblrs. Some artists even pre-arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out.

Ryan Ottley had a pretty big book out this week with INVINCIBLE. People were definitely talking about it. Check out the recent sketches he posted on his Tumblr.

That's it for this week. There's some bad news and good news about the next installment. The bad is with WonderCon next weekend, there's no guarantee we'll see this feature up. The good news is there should be another Mystery Art Challenge happening.

Cinar's Batman is a standout among standouts this week. Someone really got their commission money's worth.

@g_man: That's pretty epic that you found the Blackbolt Hail Hydra art. It's pretty hilarious and I'm surprised I never thought of it. Because I love Blackbolt. I do love all the art here today and I'm glad you do this all the time, because it's more art for my computer's wallpaper! :-)

@captainmarvel4ever: Thanks for that, I added several to my watch list so they can be featured in future deviantART picks on my blog.

And Thank You for that, after posting those I felt a little stupid adding more art to an already gigantic showcase, so that compliment made me feel better about it :)

Thomas Wayne, in the old Batman comics, was shown to have worn a Bat costume at a costume party when Bruce was young. He foiled a thug's robbing. Bruce said "I must have had that in the back of my memories when I designed my Batman costume." I was redesigning this for a contest, but an actual job popped up so I didn't finish it. In this I made the costume an actual Knight in Shining Armor costume instead of just a random Bat Costume. To sort of give it a more realistic feel I guess. The cape hangs off these small bat wings strapped to his back. The shoulder armor are meant to be bat wings and connect to the bat on the chest. I used a lot of Game of Thrones for reference. The gloves and helmet and bat, and shoulders, and leggings, are actual armor. And the shirt is an actual chainmail type material the knights had back then. I figured a rich man like Thomas Wayne, father of Bruce, may also be a perfectionist like his son and pay for a more authentic look.

This is page one from the Invincible Test Comic I did six pages for, from a script in Wizard's How to Draw Comics books. In it the father Nolan talks with his son Mark/Invincible.

I am to the point that when I hear some of my friends say something like, "This hail HYDRA stuff needs to stop" it only makes me want to keep doing it even more.
