The Shapebuilder tool allows you to modify existing shapes to seamlessly convert your logo shapes.
Okay, so I'm gonna start out by drawing a gray rectangle.
And we're gonna use a really cool tool called the Shape Builder tool,
which sort of is replacing pathfinder, if you've used that before.
And you need to have both shapes selected.
Just gonna use these shapes as the guides.
And the way the Shape Builder tool works is if we
wanted to join these shapes together, I can click and hold and drag.
And this combines the shapes.
Isn't that amazing?
Or, if I wanted to hold down option and subtract out shapes, it can also do that.
I'm gonna hit undo, command z.
I wanna remove this portion.
And voila, perfect.
There you have the end of our pencil.
Okay, and so now we need the metal band that's gonna be right here.
That's also gonna be gray.
Let's change that to gray, okay.
This is looking a little.
I'm gonna use my direct selection tool and marquee over this.
Just kinda move these points over.
