When I first started using Blender, I watched lots of tuotrials on the basics of Blender- how texturing, modelling, and lighting worked- but there were very few tutorials on modelling actual objects that were aimed at beginners. All the tutorials I found were aimed at people with prior experience in Blender, experience that I didn’t have at the time.

Fast-forwarding 3 years or so, I now have more Blender experience, but I know there’s always new guys coming into the Blender scene, so I figured I’d make this tutorial. In this tutorial I try to explain everything so that anybody, whether or not they have Blender experience, can model a pencil.

I hope you learn a lot!
