Lord of Darkness by RamageArt
Lord of Darkness
Lord of Darkness  15" X 20"

"What is light without the dark?"  Tim Curry played this iconic demon in Ridley Scott's "Legend".  Darkness is holding the female Unicorn horn thinking he will soon rule the world in darkness and chaos, until he is defeated by the light of the Sun...oops! Spoilers.  I have loved this movie since I saw it in 1986.  When the character first stepped out of the mirror I thought nothing could beat that makeup...then I saw Alien.  There were a few challenges with this design, getting his muscles and face just right.  Then working on his clothes, after painting them black, I frosted them with gold spray paint, then went in with black to paint the shadows.  As always the background is always the hardest to figure out, but I like how it turned out.  This is made from a pine board and cut out with a scroll saw and painted with acrylic paint and then spry paint is used for the highlights shadows.  This is the first time my light source was going up, so that was fun to figure out.

Alien FaceHugger by RamageArt
Alien FaceHugger
Alien FaceHugger  20" Round

This is a stone relic found in a South American cavern.  Archeologists believe it is related to other similar artifacts found around the world which may prove that Aliens have visited our planet.  Experts agree, from studying other carvings, that it is some sort of fertility mask worn during a primitive mating celebration.  The carvings depict male and female participants wearing the mask and waving their arms in excitement, there is a long necklace attached that wraps tightly around the neck. 

 I have been working on this piece for a while and finally decided how to paint it.  There is a touch of blue in the stone background and after painting the FaceHugger, I frosted it with white spray paint to make it look right.   It is made from a pine of MDF and painted to look like stone.  I love how it turned out.

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.

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 alwaysdaydream,

Thank you for your comments about my gallery.  It is always nice to find that someone new has stumbled upon it and likes it.  I usually try and add a new piece every one to two weeks.  In the winter I slow down a bit because I work in my garage and sometimes it gets too cold.  My next project is a commission of Majora's mask from Zelda, then I will try and do either Iron Man or Holly Short (from the book Artemis Fowl).

Talk to you later, Don

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
