    So I came up with this idea to make something with precision and accurate, and to practice a few things along the way , first time making a post in WIP, figured why not make a post. So here it is, I am going to model a bunch of pencils I use, figured it would be good practice and maybe something to look at by the end of it.

    I decided this challenge that I gave myself wasn’t hard enough hahaha, I needed to up the difficulty more, so now I am going to model the pencil so it can come apart in pieces like the actual pencil does ontop of just the precision.

    I may not have commented much on this project but I am keeping a close eye on it! This is very interesting and quite frankly astonishing! I maintain my original position that this is a very creative form of self-punishment but still… amazing work has gone into this, the detail and realism are mind boggling!!

    Last pencil is finished, I have learned quite a bit from this. For now I am going to move onto a new project. I need to learn more stuff and materials before finishing this completely into a scene I have planned for it.
