Godzilla 1964 by BryanBaugh
Godzilla 1964
My good friend and frequent client Kyle collects art commissions of Kimono girls. He requests such a commission from all of his favorite artists. So back in October he asked me if I would do one. Kyle said, he thought it would be interesting to see me draw a Kimono Girl along with any Japanese monster of my choice. Kyle was thinking of monsters out of Japanese folklore… But how could I resist an opportunity to draw the greatest Japanese monster of them all?? 
So as you can see I drew a Kimono Girl for Kyle.
...And kinda snuck Godzilla in there too. 
Haha!
I finished it in late November 2014 and finally got around to coloring it in early 2015. 

For this illustration I went with one of my absolute favorite Godzilla designs - as he appeared in the 1964 film, "Godzilla vs. Mothra" (also known as "Godzilla Vs. The Thing"). In this film Godzilla was much leaner and meaner than in later movies. With huge sharp teeth and extra long claws… and those wonderfully "mean" eyebrows. All of these slight modifications just made for a really vicious looking Godzilla.
And I must admit, although I was never a Mothra fan, this really is one of the best Godzilla movies, in terms of story and photography and action… and because (again) Godzilla himself just looks especially bad ass in it. Check it out if you get a chance!

Waaaay back in the mid-to-late 1990's, when I was a youngun, just getting started in my career, my first pieces of published art were Dinosaur illustrations, appearing in children's books and small circulation magazines.
Most of this stuff was for Mike Frederick's "Prehistoric Times" magazine and then, later, for a nice little publisher in Century City, California called RGA Lowell House. (RGA doesn't exist anymore, but at the time it was located right across the street from the Nakatomi Plaza building from the original Die Hard movie! Being a Midwest kid who had just moved to California... I was starstruck.)
I think some of this work may have also been reprinted later in either a Random House or Harper Collins book or two. I can't remember anymore... Pretty sure one of those big companies took over RGA at some point.

My "Dino Art Years" were 1996-1999. After 1999 I started getting work in Television Animation, and stopped doing the Dinosaur Illustration stuff. But recently, I found a whole box of these drawings in my closet and thought it would be fun to add them to my Deviant Art Gallery. Just for nostalgia's sake.

Anyway... Good times...
Enjoy this little glimpse into my professional art prehisotry!

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!
Interests
My new T-Shirt store: www.teepublic.com/user/BryanBa…

I have been asked many times by readers of my comic book series, if there will ever be "Wulf and Batsy" T-Shirts. Well now there are! As well as a few other designs.

This is a new venture for me, but I'm trying it out.  I've only got a few different T-shirt designs available so far. But I plan to add more in the near future.

I KNEW your art looked familiar! I used your book "SCARED!" to really help re-invent my style. The work in that book helped bring back the fun in my work that was missing! Thank you for teaming with Steve Miller on that book! :) Your artwork has gotten even better!

Hey, you ever consider doing some Creepypasta art? I guarantee with your style they'd be quite the success.
