So lets start.

Here is what we are going to design in Photoshop.

Step 1:

Let’s start out by creating a new file. I used a 560×350 pixels canvas set at 72dpi, and I filled my background with #626262 color shade. Now create a New Layer set and name it ‘Pencil‘. In a new layer, draw a horizontal rounded rectangle with #F6B829 color shade and 490 x 39 px dimensions. Add a Marquee Selection around the horizontal rounded rectangle through Select > Load Selection, use default settings, then create a new layer and cover the right end of the rounded rectangle with a dark gray (i.e. #2C2C2C) color shade using the Rectangle Tool . In another new layer, add a thin light gray (i.e. #DDDBDB) rectangle with 10px x 39px dimensions next to the dark gray shape as shown below. Cut the left end of the long horizontal rounded rectangle so the end is straight.

Step 2:

Under Layer Style (Layer > Layer Style) add an Inner Shadow and Gradient Overlay blending options to the pencil shape layer, give the following settings.

After hitting OK you will get this::

Step 3:

Create a new layer. Using the Pen Tool , draw the triangle shape with #D1B387 color shade on the pencil design.

Step 4:

Under Layer Style (Layer > Layer Style) add an Inner Shadow and Gradient Overlay blending options to the triangle shape layer, give the following settings:

After hitting OK, you will get this:

Step 5:

In a new layer, draw the small dark gray (i.e. #575757) triangle shape for the lead of the pencil.

Step 6:

Under Layer Style (Layer > Layer Style) add an Inner Glow and Bevel and Emboss blending options to the lead shape layer, give the following settings.

After hitting OK, you will get this:

Step 7:

Highlight the ‘Pencil’ layer set on the Layers Window, then go to Layer > Merge Layer Set. The layer set should turn into a regular layer. Now under Layer Style (Layer > Layer Style) add an Inner Shadow and Satin blending options to the Pencil layer, give the following settings:

After hitting OK, you will get this:

Step 8:

In a new layer add a shadow below the pencil as shown below.
