Step 1

Before learning how to draw a cartoon pencil, please take a look at the picture located on your left. You can see two kinds of pencils: Your ordinary pencil and a ballpoint pen. The first one has an eraser on top.

The second one is made of a push-button (1), a clip (6) and a point (4). Drawing a pencil is rather easy since they are mostly made of three parts: the point, the barrel and the cap (or top).

Step 2

The shapes of those pencils are also easy to figure out. Triangles for the point, a long rectangle for the barrel (or the body) and a small rectangle for the top. Notice how the shape of the ballpoint pen's barrel is somehow irregular. On the other hand, your average pencil is straight and firm.

Step 3

For this example, let's draw a simple short pencil. First draw a rectangle for the body. Then, draw another rectangle for the small part that hold the eraser. Continue by adding a triangle for the point. 

You can add some details like the lines on the body of the pencil. You can finish your work by adding some colors.

Step 4

It's now up to you to continue your experimentation. You can draw a funny pencil with eyes (1) (3) or a more realistic one (5). Drawing a pencil is something you should be able to accomplish easily if you pratice a little bit. This is a good example to start with if this is your first drawing tutorial!
