Awesome Art Picks: Moon Knight, Batman, Wolverine and More

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

Each week we search 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 arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out.

As we wait for Todd Nauck's first issue of NIGHTCRAWLER (with Chris Claremont), we can check out some other art he posted on his Tumblr. You'll be hearing more from Todd later this week.

Marcio Takara has been posting some pre-ECCC commissions on his Tumblr. We saw the penciled version of his Storm and Wolverine pic last week but now we can see the final image.

Ryan Stegman has been doing some daily sketches and posting them on his Tumblr. He puts them up for sale so you'll want to keep an eye out there. How long until his WOLVERINE series comes out?

Mahmud Asrar posted some sketches on his Tumblr this week.

Skottie Young posted some daily sketches on his Tumblr as well. He's now putting them up for sale on Fridays or Saturdays rather then right when he first posts them. He's also itching to do a Harry Potter comic. Someone needs to make that happen.

Paolo Rivera recently had an eight-page story in BATMAN: BLACK AND WHITE #5. He posted this Batman study on his blog this week.

Joel Gomez posted some more sketch covers and sketch cards on his Tumblr.

Peter Nguyen posted this quick sketch of the A+X buddies he drew for a friend on his Tumblr.

Mike McKone posted a few sketches on his Twitter page this week.

Check out this Thing sketch Yildiray Cinar posted on his Instagram page.

Chris Giarrusso posted some sketches on his website this week.

R.B. Silva posted a couple Flash sketches on his Instagram.

Gene Gonzales is opening his commission window for a bit. You can get more information and rates on his blog. Only twenty spots open!

You all might know I really like Moon Knight. You can imagine my reaction when I saw this commission Rod Reis posted on his Tumblr.

Here's where we bend the rules a tiny bit. You might be aware that Francis Manapul did a flashback sequence in this week's BATWOMAN #27. Here's a look at some process art for the sequence. Check out his Tumblr or buy the issue to see the finished version.

That's it for this week. This week was pretty drool-worthy. Which ones did you dig the most?

That Cyborg pic was probably my favorite. That Moon Knight was epic too.

Great art by Mario Takara, Ryan Stegman and Mahmud Asrar. Francis Manapul looks epic and Giarrusso & Silva made me smile.

As usual, I like them all. Just love to se what artists been up to lately

Posted by EnigmaLantern

R.B Silva's Flash sketches are AMAZEBALLS!

And Francis Manapul's flashback sequence for Batwoman #27 looks pretty awesome. I love seeing the development of art from its first sketch to the final product, that's why I love the Director's Cut issues DC releases for some of their titles.

Moon Knight! Moon Knight. I'm in countdown mode for the new book to start coming. This pic just amps me up a little more.

Like last week, the Francis process art is also amazing.

That Francis manspaul piece is stunning, makes me wish I still bought batwoman.

Posted by Timotheus316

Again with Wolvies claws coming out of the wrist instead of between the knuckles. Am I missing something? Are they changing where his claws come from or is Stegman (last week) and Nauck changing the physiology of Wolverine? Does anyone know if this is staple now?

Posted by Renchamp

I would kill for a Skottie Young HP book. His style fits perfectly.

Posted by RulerOfThisUniverse

Nice stuff.

Posted by gmanfromheck

@timotheus316: wolverine doesn't have his healing factor. Each time he pops his claws, it shoots through his skin. That'd be painful. Normally the skin immediately heals around the claws. So it's likely he's using the gauntlets to avoid the pain.

I love Stegman's signature.

Edited by HushoftheWind

is it me or does Wolverine new costume looks like Cyclops old X-factor outfit?

Posted by fallbrigade

Aaaah, Francis Manapul. I love this man's art. Mahmud Asrar stuff looks great too, and I love the "I'm Batman :P" Flash, that's a great one.

Posted by iceslick

@hushofthewind: No it's not only you. It does look very much like an old school X-Factor outfit.

Takara's Supergirl is my favorite this week. I'm always in awe of Nauck's coloring though.

Posted by IcePrince_X

Yehey! Finally saw a Witchblade here!

Posted by wmwadeii

Another great week, I see a lot of my deviantArt picks as well, but then again I love Nauck and Takara. I'm a day late but I have posted my deviantArt picks for the week which includes a great Katniss by Elias Chatzoudis.

Posted by sweatboy
