Pink Moon by RamageArt
Pink Moon
Pink Moon  13" Diameter

This is a baby shower gift for my niece.  It is a remake of my "Man in the Moon" piece I did several years ago.  Since the baby is a girl, I painted in pink highlights on the moon.  I think it turned out pretty cute.  I was nice to get back to something simple after all the 3D work I have been doing lately.  Made from a pine board with 1/4" and 1/8" shims behind certain pieces to give it a 3D effect.

This is just a close up view of all the detail.  I love how the tail turned out.  There are over 100 pieces just in the tail.  There are over 250 pieces overall.

Alien by RamageArt
Alien
Alien  28" Tall X 20" Wide

This is the Alien piece I have been working on for the last three weeks, the absolute hardest project I have ever tried to design.  After painting on a black base coat I added brown highlights because I thought it looked more organic and also made a new stand.  My girls talked me into adding the drool using a hot glue gun...every Alien has a bit of slobber.  Made from 1/4" Baltic Birch plywood, and using interlocking pieces,  there is no glue holding him together...there are three locking pieces that do that.  I really love the way he turned out.

This is the Alien after he is sanded and detailed a bit more.  I REALLY love the way this project is turning out...now onto painting him.

I take commissions
United States
My name is Donald Ramage and I have been an illustrator since 1989. I have designed artwork for fire departments, law enforcement and medical air units. I absolutely love doing pen and ink drawings of birds of prey, owls, eagles, hawks and falcons; I just can't get enough! I also love drawing other animals. I started working with wood about 2005, after looking at dozens and dozens of patterns online I realized I could design my own, the hard part is drawing the pattern to fit. All of the pieces are one-of-a-kind designs, each piece is made from a single piece of wood, including the frame. I use shims behind certain parts to raise the image in areas to give a 3D effect. I have won several awards from the California State Fair woodworking competitions and I have had 3 pieces published in woodworking magazines. My three daughters have been posting their own artwork on DA for quite some time and have finally convinced me to make my own, I hope you enjoy what you see.

(My father would never write this, but I think it is important, so I'm going to do it.)

Thank you very much for watching him and/or commenting on his projects.  He's almost never online, unless he wants to submit something, so he never really gets the chance to reply back to any of his comments.  (He still has comments from almost a year ago.)

Just to let you guys and gals know, he really does appreciate your support and comments. So please keep up the wonderful support, just don't expect a reply to anything soon... unless you get lucky and he happens to get online soon after you comment.

Thank You for watching my father!

Hi RampageArt, Just wanted to say i absolutely adore your gallery, i've never seen woodwork quite like this before. Somebody on Tumblr directed me to your gallery after they picked up one of your Mystery Skulls pieces at a convention. I'd love to commission you if you are taking them at the moment :)

Can't wait to see what you create in the future!

Hi Steph-Sama,

Thank you for your comments on my gallery, I really enjoy designing and creating the pieces.  When I first started working on wood projects, I never thought I would be producing art like this...sometimes I am even amazed how well some of the pieces turn out.

 I would love to find out what you are thinking of, not everything can be turned into one of my pieces.  I live in Citrus Heights in Sacramento, and you can contact me at ramageart@Comcast.net   Talk to you later, Don

Hi TheTurnerPack,

Thank you for the birthday wish, I was surprised to find someone knew my birthday, so I had to ask my girls who showed me where it is in my profile.  Checked out your gallery, love the wood burning.  I have a cheap wood burner and never really got into it even though I love how wood burning looks.  You have some really nice pieces.  My personal favorite in wood burning subjects is birds of prey, I have several downloaded.  My girls like the Naruto Clan Village coasters.  Some suggestions for more coasters are DC and Marvel character logos, the original S.H.I.E.L.D. logo would look great, also, Dr. Who logos...the Seal of Rasilon and Dr. Who's name in Galifrey.  You could probably do well at Anime Conventions...try it out at a local convention, most tables are like $30 - $50.  Talk to you later, Don

You are welcome! 

And thank you for looking at my burnings :) I too love birds of prey and try to do a lot of them! 
And thanks for the suggestions! Those would all be awesome! I'm currently trying to see if there is somewhere I can order plain cork coasters in bulk. It's so easy to go through a lot when you make a set of 4 to 6 at a time!

I've never thought about a convention. I'll have to check it out!
