So I can select those particles and go into the Attribute Editor and let's go through some of the attributes of this particle system to show you how we can affect the way that it looks. I am going to actually zoom in here so we can see the particles. Now, under the Particle System we have got a number of different tabs here. We have got the actual Particle System itself, which is really just positional, where is this positioned. Then we have 1 or 2 ParticleShape tabs.
