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.

Freddie Williams II posted several sketches he recently did on blank comic book covers on his TwitPic page. The one of Roy and Lian is pretty heart breaking.

Chris Samnee updated his blog this week with several new pieces. This gives us the chance to see his take on several different characters.

Todd Nauck posted a couple sketches on his Instagram page. I know we're supposed to be seeing Booster Gold soon. It's about time. (No pun intended).

Peter Nguyen posted his first Star Wars commission and a Dani Moonstar sketch on his Tumblr. He decided to try a more heavy ink wash on the Boba Fett piece.

Michael Walsh posted a cool Shadow sketch on his Tumblr. If you've never seen how he draws, check out when he did the Mystery Art Challenge in New York HERE. He also posted a Hero Initiative charity WALKING DEAD cover. These are auctioned off and the proceeds go towards their charity program.

Agnes Garbowska posted a penciled and inked sketch of the Bat Family (which she is going to add watercolors to). She also posted her completed Avengers Park and Game of Thrones pieces on her Tumblr.

Terry Dodson added another NYCC commission to his Deviant Art page. This one is Voodoo. It's a "a Belle Epoque version of her."

Philip Tan posted a couple more sketches on his Facebook page this week of Gorgon and Superman.

It may not be comic related but it's still art! Denis Medri posted another movie sketch for One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest on his Deviant Art Page.

Robert Atkins posted a Venom commission he did at NYCC that was later colored on his blog.

There is some great, original works here! It's always awesome when the artists draw the same characters with a new interpretation or angle.

Robert Atkins' colored Venom (I know I'm in the minority, but my favorite color scheme is Red, Black and White...you can thank Mass Effect and Gears of War for that), Freddie Williams III's Robin (Damian), Chris Samnee's Daredevil and Wolverine, Phillip Tan's Superman, and Brett Booth's Superior Spider-Man were my favorites this week.

Man the artwork this week really kicks butt! I really love that Shadow by Michael Walsh. The Black Panther and esp the Daredevil on Cap's shield by Chris Samnee are well done. Incredible use of inks!

Terry Dodson's work is beautiful.

Yet truly, the knockout here is Mike Mayhew's Scarlet Witch. Wow!

Again, wonderful work by all the artists, always a blast seeing all the collected cartoon and comic art!

The Samnee DD snowboarding on Captain America's shield is pretty awesome, as is Mayhew's take on Scarlet Witch. Also incredible was Atkin's take on Venom.
