Each week we search and gather up the coolest comic book art you won’t see in actual comics. The reason you won’t is because professional 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. This is a way to see the artists working on one book draw characters from other comics or publishers.
We recently did another Mystery Art Challenge at Long Beach Comic Con to celebrate the release of Doctor Strange in theaters. The challenge is for artists to draw a certain character with a random object. The artist don’t get any advanced time to prepare and have to come up with an idea on the spot. Derek Fridolfs, Dustin Nguyen, Joel Gomez, Peter Nguyen, and Todd Nauck each took the challenge of drawing Doctor Strange and an apple.
