I am trying to recreate this Hand drawn object in blender, and do not know where to start. The main difficult part is the top curved object. I tried extruding some sides of a cylinder and then shrinking them down like this poorly modeled object but I couldn't get any further. I am relatively new to blender, so all feedback, tips and tricks would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks, Dan.

You should first draw its profile, here are 2 ways to do it (among many I guess):

  • $\begingroup$ In Edit mode select all your vertices, press E to extrude, then Enter right away, then chose the axis (Y or X). To smooth use a Subdivision Surface modifier, and put some additional edge loops (ctrl R) to sharp the edges. $\endgroup$
