Capt. Rex 3 by RamageArt
Capt. Rex 3
Capt. Rex 3  14" X 17"

This is Capt. Rex after doing a little shading and highlights, he looks pretty good but he not done yet...only about 1/2 way.  Capt. Rex knows how to get things done and he gets dirty doing it, so I still need to weather his armor and add a bit more detail...also I need to darken the blue on his armor.  He is done on 3/4" pine board and painted with acrylic paint.

Groot Business Card Holder 2 by RamageArt
Groot Business Card Holder 2
Groot 2  10" Tall 6" Base

So I needed a business card holder for my new business cards and I like Groot, sooo.  Made from 1/4 " Baltic Birch Plywood and painted with acrylic paint.  Initially made Groot all by himself, but messed up my dimensions and he was too tall to hold the cards, so I made the box the cards are standing on.

Capt. Rex (Unfinished) by RamageArt
Capt. Rex (Unfinished)
Capt. Rex (Unfinished) 14" X 17"

Star Wars The Clone Wars, doesn't get any better than that (oh wait, Rebels).  I absolutely love this show (better than 1,2 and 3 combined), the stories are clever, the writing is fantastic, and as the episodes went along the visuals just got better and better.  I plan on doing several characters from the show...Ahsoka, Asajj,, clone nose art.  But I have to start with CT-7567, AKA Captain Rex of the 501st.  One of my favorite characters from the show.  I just started him a couple of days ago and finished sanding the 140 pieces and adding the shims...to give it the 3D effect.  I just painted the background and visor to take the picture.  I now finish painting the whole thing white then apply the base coat and then I start shading everything and adding the detail.  I is made from a 3/4" pine board.

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!

Thank you for your comment on my profile, it is always nice to know someone is checking out your gallery.  Right now I am getting ready for an anime convention and will be doing a couple of pieces inspired by Star Wars Clone Wars.  Nice rings by the way.

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
