There are a lot of great comic book art blogs out there, beyond the deviantart pages of the world, and if you’re a comic book fan, these are webpages that you should be checking out on a daily basis. This week, I’m going to highlight a few that I think are worthy of your attention or are just pages for some of my favorite artists.
We start with Robert Atkins Art, the webpage for Robert Atkins, currently on the Snake Eyes ongoing from IDW, formerly of the main GI Joe series. Atkins has also done work on Amazing Spider-Man, Ultimate Fantastic Four, and others.
Atkins has really stepped up his game on his webpage in the last few months, updating the site almost every day with sketches of various characters from across pop culture. He also chooses specific themes for each week, giving him a chance to stretch his muscles. What’s the best part about this blog? Almost all of the sketches he posts are for sale at decent prices, so if you’re a fan of original art, you have to check this out. There are several pieces on the site that I am kicking myself for not buying.
If you’ve never seen Atkins’ work before, check out his site and take a look at what he is doing. He draws in a very clean, traditional super-hero style that should appeal to any fan of comic books. I love seeing the different characters that he features on his site, and I think you’ll enjoy it as well.
