Hi, my name is Fernando Mendoza and this is my first post! I hope to share my art journey with you guys and hopefully even make some friends! For the first few posts I will be sharing all of my old work until I make it all the way to the present, as a way of showing my progress. If you want to find recent work, check my other sites in my signature.
For now I will share three recent drawings and then start posting my old work in batches. Sorry if they are so horrible and boring! Im also still trying to figure out how posting images works!

Tools: Wooden 2B Pencil, Mechanical Pencil 2B, GIMP (to darken image with Levels)
Paper: Strathmore Drawing 300 Series (I dont like this paper)
Decided not to blend on this one. Drew with wooden 2B and then went over with MP 2B to make it darker and smoother. I like the roughness though
Tools: Mechanical Pencil 2B, GIMP (Darkened in Levels)
Paper: White Copy Paper
Just a simple study of my face that I tried making smoothish by hatching.

Tools: MP HB & 2B on Copy Paper
I thought it looked cool so I had to draw it! Tried making it smooth by hatching and then crosshatching.
