Each week we search for cool comic art that won't appear in comics. The reason they won't appear in actual comics is because artists often post sketches and commissions on their websites, blogs and Tumblrs. They're too cool to be missed. A lot of these artists even arrange commissions through their websites so be sure to check them out for more information. If you're aware of any comic artists' blogs that we're missing out on, be sure to let me know.
Being a holiday week, you can imagine that the amount of art posted isn't as much as usual. We did still find some really great pieces this week.
Marcio Takara posted some more commissions and 'tiny heroes' on his Tumblr. You can see the Spider-Man piece is just in the pencil stage. It's great seeing the progression. I assume he'll post the final version later.
Paolo Rivera's blog is always full of great stuff. He posts a lot of the process of his art. Here's a commission he posted along with a look at the pencils for his incredible cover for this week's AVENGING SPIDER-MAN #15.1.
I'm not sure what to expect with the new NOVA series coming. Sam Alexander is a bit annoying in the Ultimate Spider-Man animated series. Still, it's a cool design as you can see from the character study Todd Nauck posted on his Instagram.
That's it for this week and this year. Happy New Year to everyone. Here's to another great year of Awesome Art.
