Here is the finished cartoon of the character sketch I posted earlier last week. I changed the name now to “My prom date worked for the FBI” as I think it works better than the “CIA”. It’s much more in the retro cartoon style that I like.

3rd Pinup. Better I think than the last two. I think I’m finding my style, but it is very hard to not go too realistic. I referenced some of her photos for the art. She liked it very much The next one I’ll try and make a little more cartoony I think.

New subject. About 3 1/2 hrs of work from Photoshop sketch to Illustrator CS6 illustration so I am certainly getting faster. For my 2nd female cartoon it is getting better.

My first pinup girl ever. I did her in a retro cartoon style. Kind of reminds me of Betty Boop  a little. A full figured girl. Not bad for a first try, and it was of a real person I know.

This is a close up of the “Tonatiuh” the sun of the Panchito illustration. I’m considering doing a t-shirt with this design. The original design is taken from the centr of the Aztec calender with some modifications, but it is pretty true to the original design.

This is Panchito. It’s an illustration that I did for fun. It’s always been posted with the caption “In all the world, Panchito thought there was no place better to enjoy the morning sun than on the head of ancient kings”
It’s done in illustrator CS6 and is an update from an original pen and ink illustration that I did in 2005. © Copyright 2005,2012 by Ralph Pacheco

First post. This is a character from an unpublished book. She is a little skeleton named Lupita and is one of a series of illustrations that I have done. This is one of my favorites from the series. The artwork is copyright 2005, 2012 by Ralph Pacheco.
