Really need help with those jaggy edges on the writing pad part. Tried with mask blurring and adjusting levels but still not satisfied with the result. Comments, feedback and tips are highly appreciated.

Try another angle :)
@kajdax tried 45 degrees but doesn't look right :D
but seriously, I've tried several angles, it doesn't help. The weird thing is, that pencil edges looks so much better than the writing pads and the paper. I'm clueless.
if there is outline then remove it :)
@noptar in fact, it's much worse if I remove the outline :(
I use stroke with 35% opacity to reduce those jaggy edges.
But maybe Kajdax is right, there must be an angle where the edges are evenly antialiased or at least less jaggy.
use outer glow or drop shadow then see the results :)
@noptar ah, haven't tried that. I'll update the result here. Thanks a lot!
I love it the way it is
ok try one thing your angle must be in round figure it could be any angle not in decimals i have tried :)
@Diego you're simply too kind. Thank you very much Diego, means a lot coming from you :)
blur (5-10) the mask then use levels or brightness-contrast to adjust it back to sharp mode. i hope i make sense :)
Really good work. You did it with Photoshop? I bet you've created and then rotated.
@Anton didn't tried with the settings you mentioned. I'll definitely give it a shot. Thanks a lot Anton :)
@Andy what are you? mind reader? :D yes, you're correct Andy. Should I do it in different way?
@Fares AHAH! It's a stupid problem of Photoshop. Try to create the Base_Shape on Illustrator. :)
@Andy How didn't I think of that.. Thanks a ton dude!
@Fares Don't mention it my Friend. :) I'm glad to have helped you.
Excellent, really love that pencil! :D
