Fresh from the printer!
New copies of my 2013 comic: "Wulf and Batsy in: Scarifying Tales" are back in stock.
Available for order here: www.cryptlogic.net/store/

"Wulf and Batsy" is a continuing series of comic adventures about a werewolf and a cute female vampire, wandering the earth in search of a place to call home. But everywhere they go, they eat people, and have to keep moving on. This 32 page horror comic contains three short stories about Wulf and Batsy, titled, "Them's Monsters", "If You Knew...", and "The Left Stocking". Created, written, and illustrated by Bryan Baugh.

"Scarifying Tales" is a great sampler if you are interested in Wulf and Batsy but haven't yet read the longer trade paperback volumes. These stories are little episodes unto themselves. They will give you a good feel for the characters but won't leave you feeling like you are "missing something" just because you haven't read other Wulf and Batsy material.

By day I work as a storyboard artist in Television Animation.
I have worked on action shows like "Transformers: Prime" (for Hasbro Studios)
as well as kiddie shows like "My Friends Tigger and Pooh" (for Walt Disney TV Animation).

By night I draw MONSTERS!

I have been a monster fan my whole life, for as long as I can remember. Whether it came in the form of creepy comic books, monster movies, horror novels, or Halloween decorations, I have always loved weird, scary entertainment.

When I draw, I use traditional tools - paper, pencil, ink brushes, hawk quill pens, and acrylic paints. But I often color with Photoshop. So my work is a weird mix of traditional and digital art.

My Deviant Art Gallery is dedicated to my monster and horror illustrations. Step inside and have a look... If you dare!

You are seriously talanted! I really loved your work on Hack slash. I noticed that you did a cool drawing of the Beyond. Have you thought about doing any other Fulci stuff? A Dr Freudstein one would be extremely awesome. Keep up the good work

Thanks! I'm glad you liked my Hack/Slash stuff.
Have you seen my Wulf and Batsy comics? 

To answer your question Yes, I am a big Lucio Fulci fan! I plan to (eventually) do tribute illustrations for "Zombie". That's my other favorite Fulci film.
"Gates of Hell" (aka "City of the Living Dead"), or Dr. Freudstein from "House by the Cemetery" would be fun, too!

I love your artwork with the horror posters.  I was wondering if you were gonna do another Return of the Living Dead?  This time with the girl, Trash, both as a human and a zombie.

Thank you so much! I've often thought about doing more ROTLD illustrations, and yes, Trash is high on the list of subjects to draw. Not sure how soon I'll get to it though… I've got a lot of other things lined up that I want to do first. So many horror movies, so many monsters, and so little time!

Well, here's hoping to see more of her.  Gotta admit, for a rock goth punk chick, she was hot, human and undead.

Aww no problem! And let me just say the feeling is beyond mutual. Your artwork has been inspiring me a lot longer than mine has inspired you. After all, you were actually DRAWING HORROR COMICS FOR REAL in the 1980's when I was still just a snot nosed teenager in high school who could only dream of drawing horror comics.
Plus just looking at your stuff now, knocks me out every time. You've got a technical skill and proficiency that I wish I could give my stuff. I am so pleased to call you an online friend after being aware of your work for so many years.

I've heard people panicking about that for years.
Just another paranoid Internet conspiracy theory.
Not worried about it.

Wow, the great Bryan Baugh himself on Deviantart? What an honor it is to find and watch you! I pretty much have all of your books you and Steve Miller created for aspiring artists (like myself) to learn and develop one's artistic skills!

If I had known you were on DA, I should've watched you YEARS ago! I hope to see more spooky/scary/awesome works from you!

Thank you so much! Glad to hear you enjoyed those books.
Steve Miller is on Deviant Art as well. (he goes by stvnhthr on DA)

Since I did those art instructional books I have moved on to other projects.
Since 2010 I've been drawing storyboards for the animated TV series, "Transformers: Prime".
And writing and drawing my own series of horror comic books, "Wulf and Batsy".

As I noticed, man I wish I could shake hands with you IRL man, I really have to thank you for those books and such.

One question though, I was trying to draw this gargoyle character that you have on the "Swords and Sorcery" book and I have a lot of difficulty drawing him despite the pose and the tutorial being there, that and I was wondering, how do I make him move and such despite being thin and "sinewy" if you know what I mean?

Haha, it's been so long since I did that book I'm not even sure I remember which character you are talking about!
But I will say, as a general rule of thumb - any time you are drawing, ANY character, all you have to do is start with a stick figure. You can easily draw a stick figure in any pose, right? Okay then, knock out a stick figure in a cool pose. Then, draw simple shapes (circles, cylinders, squares, or rectangles) on top of that stick figure to build up the shapes of his arms, legs, torso, etc. Build those simple body-shapes as thick or thin as you want. This way you can build your stick figure up as thin as a scarecrow or as thick as the Hulk. You just want to nail down the figure's basic under-structure as a featureless mannequin first, to make sure his proportions are correct. THEN you can add on all the little details that make this basic figure into a gargoyle, or a robot, or a normal guy in a 3-piece suit. Remember, all those surface details are just decorations, and that's the last thing you should worry about.

The book: "How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way" by Stan Lee and John Buscema has a GREAT chapter on this.
It's a classic, loaded with great tips, and it's way better than my art-instruction books.
Look it up! I recommend it.
