Replacement icon for Apple's TextEdit. I've never had much luck with metal reflections before but I think I've found a technique that works for me :) tips, suggestions, and critique are all appreciated!

You did a great job! :D
indeed this is great Ollin ;)
Amazing texture on the grip!
Super good job on the pen!
Must... draw... metal.... Nice one!
Pretty cool. Nailed the pencil and reflections.
Maybe you could hand write the text yourself?
The spacing of lines seems quite small compared with the width of the pencil nib and the smallness of the characters.
@David: having the text bigger meant it was covered by the pencil and couldn't be read :P
Great replacement :), thanks mate!
You've been featured on iconpaper!
Love it! Scaled down version looks a bit blurry, OH MAN what a cliche comment. Great job on the metal! :)
That pen is calling my name.
Can you share your technique in a blog post? :)
@Jim I have no blog and don't use PS anyway so there are probably other methods :) I've given consideration to making a complete, program independent tutorial on my design process before, but I don't know how much the community wants one.
The texture on the pen is delightful!
@Ollin awesome work fella! ++

The grip is amazing. You've found the right S-curves.
What if you make the body metal coloured to contrast eraser, grip and paper? E.g. metallic ruby / green / navy / orange.
