We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, but because there are so great images on sites like like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and other countless art blogs that we've created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the virtually countless pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it's new, some of it's old, some of it's created by working professionals, some of it's created by talented fans, and some of it's endearingly silly. All of it's awesome.

WARNING: In keeping with ComicsAlliance's fortnight of sexy comics programming, this edition of Best Art Ever is perhaps slightly sexier than usual, in our selections of both male and female character art. Some of these might count as NSFW. Regular editor Andy Khouri was joined this time by Best Comic Book Covers Ever (This Month) editor Andrew Wheeler, and together they put together a visual mixtape of variously sexy and even scandalous portraits.WANT TO CONTRIBUTE?

We're very much interested to see what you've dug up and think should be featured here in Best Art Ever (This Week). Please submit any great art links to andykhouri-at-comicsalliance.com. Artists, feel free to send in your own work or to request that your work be removed.
