Back from abroad


I'm back and busier than ever. I'll post some specifics and sneak peeks as soon as the various projects are announced. In the meantime, here are some more sketches related to the lass I posted previously. I'll talk about what these doodles are building up to when the time is right.

Thanks to everyone for all of the nice comments you have been posting. I am always so pleased to see folks visiting from all over the globe and your kind words and critiques are very much appreciated.

Next post, I will share a newly completed DC cover for one of those projects keeping me busy, as well as a new movie!

Stay tuned-

OH MY... These are beautiful! I cannot wait to hear what this is for. I see a bunny, perhaps Alice in Wonderland.

Again, cannot wait to see the cover :)

Do you make sketchbooks for cons? or any plan to do it?, cuz this drawings also deserve to be published. is one of the thing i liked most of Sky between branches.

Allan Josh Mills said...

Looks great, Josh! If this is Alice then you're perfect for it. One the best things I like about your work is the gestures and facial expressions. I'm always working on that stuff. Keep up the great work.

Howard Shum said...

Cool drawings, Josh!

Fabio Moon said...

Beautiful sketches. Nice to see you're keeping busy.

Gabriel said...

I have about 5 different websites that I look to when I need inspiration for my own (very non-professional, personal) drawings, and your blog is always among the first stops. The others are Hope Gangloff, James Jean, Audrey Kawasaki and the Sex In Art site in case you were wondering.

I really want to know, especially relating to the most recent post, where you turn to for ideas or references for the clothing on your characters. I mean batman is obvious enough, but I have trouble drawing period clothing or anything but formless baggy shirts and pants really.

As always, inspiring.

Kristian Antonelli said...

your sketches are beautiful..

Thanks again,

kubrok said...

hi josh. ive been a fan ever since nyx #1 and honestly you're one of my favorite atists, but i never knew you had your own site until now :/....anyways....i really dig your style, thats what made me pick up nyx in the first place.... however, i was wondering if you're a self taught artist, or did you go to art school or whatever? if so, where? <---- i know it shouldnt really matter, but im just curious :/
i ask because i like to draw too and im looking to hopefully become a concept artist and/or a comic book penciller.... im a freshman in art school and i love to draw, but my figures, poses, and people in general look kinda whack whenever i try to draw straight from imagination without any references. and im too hard-headed to pick up an anatomy book and memorize every single muscle and bone to draw dope figures....and its when i look at your art its so simple, not much structure and anatomy like in a jim lee drawing, rather just lines and curves here and there but it looks so good and proportionally correct....or is there really hardcore anatomy under your drawings? if you dont mind sharing, whats your secret? howd you develop your drawing skills and style over the years since you started drawing? anything, any tips you wanna share with me is fine and i greatly appreciate it.... im just looking for any input, and some help. sorry for the long post. keep up the great work. stay up. peace and love bro. thanks.

I'm very intrigued, I especially like the boy with the ponytail, he looks interesting. (Excuse me if it's actually a girl, I'm terrible at telling.) You draw the loveliest faces~ (though I read what you said above, and other kinds of faces are fantastic too, anything you draw is always so cool looking. :D )
