Each week we gather up the coolest comic art on the internet that will never appear in actual comic books. The reason is, artists often do sketches for fun or for commissions and post them on their websites, Tumblrs, Twitter pages and blogs. They’re too good to go unnoticed. Many of these artists even offer commissions through their websites so be sure to check them out.
Pretty much any time Denis Medri posts something on his Deviant Art page, you can bet it’s going to be stellar. He’s been doing a lot of character redesigns and this week we have a couple more steampunk versions as well as a western take as well. Be sure to check his page as he mentioned he’ll be taking commissions soon.

Terry Dodson posted some SDCC commissions on his Deviant Art page. It should be noted that not all of them are of female characters. Just most of them are.
Mike Mayhew posted a Psylocke sketch online recently but I missed with it with all the chaos of the last couple weeks.
Mitch Breitweiser has redesigned his website. Check out the recent Spider-Man and Batman sketches he posted.
What are your thoughts on Catwoman’s costume in The Dark Knight Rises? Cameron Stewart said he hated it at first but likes it after watching the movie. Here’s a sketch he posted on his Tumblr.
Who besides me is missing Stephanie Brown? Agnes Garbowska posted a couple commissions featuring Stephanie (one as Nightwing) as well as one of Rapunzel and Pascal on her Tumblr.
Daniel HDR also posted a (regular) Nightwing sketch on his Instagram page.
Dustin Nguyen posted a flashback sketch of Superman with his parents on his Tumblr this week. It’s great when Dustin throws in a hint of his humor.
Todd Nauck posted a mash-up of Kid Flash from the Young Justice series and the New 52 on his Twitter page.
It’ll never get old for me, especially if Chris Giarrusso is involved. Check out his Ironing Man sketch as well as a Tribute Tuesday post from his website.
Peter Nguyen posted a few new sketches on his Tumblr this week.
Ron Salas posted a few different versions of Batman on his website. And check out the Jean Grey pic he did for Heroescon.
I feel like we haven’t seen too much of Pixie lately in the X-Men books. Here’s a sketch Gene Gonzales posted on his blog.
Skottie Young has started doing original drawings based on word suggestions over Twitter and posting them on his site. Here’s one he did based on “smile” and also a sketch of a monster from under the bed.
Yesterday on our podcast we brought up Ben Templesmith. He’s been doing sketches and posting them on his Instagram account.
Somehow I missed Freddie E. Williams II at SDCC. Looks like he was super busy. He’s posted a bunch of commissions on his Twit Pic page this week.
That’s it for this week. Let us know what you thought. Be sure to check out the artists’ page for more awesome art.
