Rocket Raccoon by RamageArt
Rocket Raccoon
Rocket Raccoon  22" X 12"

This is another piece that was inspired by a Skottie Young Rocket Raccoon comic cover, I really like his style of art.  I had to modify it a bit from the original art, the moons are smaller (or is Rocket bigger?) and I changed the coloring just a tad...I tried to stay true to the original art as I could.  I really enjoyed doing this piece, some of it was a little tedious...there are almost 300 individual pieces to cut out and some were very small.  It was made by drawing the image on a pine board, cutting it out with a scroll saw, shaping and sanding every piece with a Dremel, then adding shims behind certain pieces to give it a 3-D look, then it is painted using acrylic paint, the shading and highlights are done using spray paint...I finish with 3 coats of clear coat.  I love the way it turned out...now on to the next project

WingRider by RamageArt
WingRider
WingRider   18" X 20"

An elite branch of the Fairy Guard, the WingRiders have protected their forest from above for a millennia against invaders.  Each WingRider is given a new title when they successfully create a link with their chosen Bird of Prey so that they can work together...this soon becomes a bond which lasts a lifetime.  This fairy, one of the best "OwlRangers", because of his bravery and skill with a bow, was given his new title by Scarlet Oak, the queen herself...he is called "Ceannasai" (Commander).  He rides his Great Horned "Scath Maru" (Killing Shadow).

I have been wanting to design a few pieces using my Bird of Prey art that I have done over the years.  I was inspired by a piece that Matt Roper did called "Peregrine Rider" and decided to come up with my own storyline.  This design is cut from a single pine board with 1/8" and 1/4" shims behind different pieces to give it a 3-D effect.  My other pieces in the works involve another couple of owls, a couple of hawks and an eagle

Dr. Strange Sorcerer Supreme by RamageArt
Dr. Strange Sorcerer Supreme
Dr. Strange Sorcerer Supreme  16" X 22"

In his Sanctum Sanctorum, Dr. Strange uses his Cloak of Levitation, Eye of Agamoth and the Book of the Ashanti to fight evil.  This is the biggest piece I have done so far.  I really love the way it turned out, I especially like the cape.  This is an original piece, using reference material to make sure I got all the details right.  It is made out of pine with 1/8" and 1/4" shims behind certain pieces to give it the 3-D look.

The Joker by RamageArt
The Joker
The Joker   11" X 20"

Meant to be a one time character in Batman #1 in 1940, The Joker has become one of the most iconic villains in comic history.  Starting out as a criminal mastermind and psychopath with a warped and sadistic sense of humor, the joker hasn't changed (including his appearance) much...if it's not broke, don't fix it.  This piece was inspired by art where he is holding Jimmy Olsen's ID card, I changed his face a bit, his cloths and added the Joker card.  It may not be an original idea, but it sure looks awesome...besides Harley missed her puddin'.  I loved working on this piece, he looked evil just on the board before even doing anything to it, it gave me the hibbity jibbities.  The last thing I did before glueing him together was add the light green highlights to his hair...that made the image POP.

SteamBoy by RamageArt
SteamBoy
SteamBoy  16" X 18"

SteamBoy is one of my favorite movies.  I have always wanted to do this art, it is from the cover of Katsushiro Otomo's movie.  I omitted the landscape from the piece, I really need to learn how to paint backgrounds.  I love how this piece turned out, especially the machine and the goggles...they really have the 3-D look.  This is done on a pine board, painted the base coat with acrylic paint then used spray paint to add the highlights and shadows.  I then "spritz" paint over certain parts to give it more texture.

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 Kateknitsalot,

Thank you for your comments on my gallery.  I made my daughters stands for her dolls because she was entering them into the California State Fair and we wanted them to stand up, there is a thin dowel sticking up through the stand that holds the doll in position.  She won Honorable Mention on all her dolls and they will be shown at the fair.  But I think I created a monster, she is making all these plans for future dolls, like the ballroom floor she wants me to do for Belle in Beauty and the beast.  The next pieces I am working on is a 3-D Stegosaurus, a Klingon Bat'leth, and a really cool "face hugger" from Alien.  Talk to you later, Don
