Optimus Prime (Work in Progress) by RamageArt
Optimus Prime (Work in Progress)
Standing at 20" tall, has over 200 pieces so far, and is only 60% completed.  I still need to finish the arms, his War Ax and a stand.  I have been working on this guy constantly for the last 2 weeks.  This is by far the most complicated 3D project I have tried to design and build.  There are no schematics for Optimus, that I could find, so designing him from scratch was really something to take on.  The head (being so iconic) took me 2 days to get it right.  I was surprised that there were so many variants on his design, so I kind of picked ideas from different versions...I like the legs from one, the chest from another...and some parts I just had to make up.  As with all my 3D pieces, there is no glue holding him together, just locking pieces.

POP Darth Maul Spider Body (Final) by RamageArt
POP Darth Maul Spider Body (Final)
8" tall X 12" leg span.  With inspiration from Star Wars Clone Wars Animated Series, I designed a spider body for my POP Darth Maul figure.  For realism, I cut my Darth Maul in half and designed the spider around him.  Took a little time to get the body right.  I painted him gloss black, then "spritzed" him with red, brown and grey paint.  I then wrapped his legs and body in different gauges of wire, then powdered him with black spray paint to take the edge off the shiny wire.  I absolutely love the way he 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.

(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 IronManRox27,

Thank you for your comment on my profile, of course I had to have my daughters come in and explain what it meant, but again, thank you.

I am really going to show my age (62) and my lack of Internet suave, but what is a Gerald spam?  I just didn't give you permission to hack my computer, like inviting a Vampire in your house.

Thank you for your comment! :D Im not in the force but i trying to get in, whats really hard to do in Croatia as the requests to came in are huge so the army can pick who will it like to serve. Im inking with a fineliner sakura or marvy pens and i render with markers. I also have pastels and oil but i want to get this good first until i start to spend expensive colors on canvas. I just love millitary, trains, firefighting, police ( to a point) and vehicles in general. I love ships too and i try to get as many books as possible to get good info on what im doing as all of that is really technical ( and history related) sometimes.

Hi Iwanga,

Thank you on your comments on the Majora Mask and the profile.  I have several new projects coming up including another Capt Rex, an Ahsoka, Batman, Batgirl and CatWoman, plus a few commission pieces.  With the 3-D pieces I will be designing a new more aggressive Werewolf and I will be trying to design a Cyberman from Dr. Who.  Talk to you later, Don

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.
