Awesome Art Picks: Nightcrawler, Wolverine, Wonder Woman and More

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

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

Mahmud Asrar posted his X-Men Sketch Studies on his Tumblr.

Wolverine shredding through the paper at a forward facing angle may be an old hat by now, but this one is exceptionally well done. Really lends it's success to the artist's ability to have the character embrace the metaphysical. If I was holding this piece of paper in my hands (albeit while being slightly torched) I'd probably freak out.

@greenlucario: "Formerly known as NIGHTCRAWLER." They must have renamed it. Almost looks like it was a while ago. Chris Samnee posted on his Tumblr on Jan 15 and it's referred to as X-MEN LEGACY. I guess a lot of us just totally missed it and maybe Marvel didn't really make a big deal about it. I noticed it in this week's Marvel Previews on comiXology:

They had said at one point that it was originally supposed to be X-Men Legacy before the announcement, then they changed it to Nightcrawler. I wonder what it actually is going to be titled...

I'm lost too. But those images were from last week's comiXology previews that Marvel put out. Before it just said X-Men Legacy in the banner watermark thing. Now they actually put the title on top of the image. This makes more sense but we'll have to wait until Marvel releases a "first look."

Doesn't matter either way for me, I'm buying the book. xD

Nice art. Is there a lising anywhere of all the professional comic artists/writers who have Tumblrs?

There's always great stuff in this article but this is a ridiculously terrific week. My favorite is definitely Ron Salas's Usagi Yojimbo. I love the colors on Mahmud Asrar's work. Rod Reis, Phil Noto, and Marcio Takara have some great work as well. Stellar week.

Asrar's X-Men look great as does Salas' Yosagi and Cinar's Supergirl. And for those who keep up I just posted my deviantART picks for the week as well.

Love Elric and Usagi Yojimbo ones

My budding art collection desperately needs a Rod Reis piece in it (I didnt mean for that to come out so sexualized). BTW, you seen Jeff Lemire's Usagi Yojimbo yet?

Wait, what? Did they cancel Nightcrawler's book or just rename it? And when did this happen?

yes! Yildiray Cinar's work is Awesome! He and Tony Bedard have totally turned around the Supergirl title for me. I hope he stays on permanent. Thanks big guy!

Can't help "liking" all of Marcio Takara's stuff on his Tumblr. I really want to use his stuff for reference and to imitate his style.

Also, gotta get some Cliff Chiang in here but I guess his recent updates on his Tumblr doesn't fit the requirements ("... art you won't see in comics") for this post.
