Sticks

Hey. Since I’m making a Snowman I was wondering what could/should I use to make his arms? It needs to look like a stick.

Thanks.

Cylinder. Then shrink the whole thing (S-key in object mode, draw mouse towards centre), then extend it longways (S-key then either X, Y or Z key depending on the colour of the arrow pointing that way only pull outwards this time)

How do I make it bigger on only one way?

You hit S to resize, then you hit either one of X, Y or Z to say which direction (look at the colour of the resizing arrows for a clue… bottom left of your 3D window shows a diagram of which colour goes which way).
If you hit Z and really want Y, just hit Y mid-flight
SHIFT-X means every way but not X. (expands / shrinks in Z and Y)
