Hat Drawing Reference

This is the reference we will use to come up with a simple hat design.

We won’t be drawing this hat exactly the way it is in the reference but it will be a similar hat.

To draw this hat, we will begin by drawing the top of the hat first and then the circle that comes around it.

Steps For Drawing A Hat

Step 1

Start off by drawing a wavy horizontal line. On either side of that line draw a curved line going down.

Step 2

To join those two lines together, draw another curved line facing upwards. This will be the top of the hat.

Step 3

The final step is to color your drawing in. I’m chosen to use a light shade of brown but you can pick any color you want.

You don’t need to go for the color that I have chosen but you could try coloring it in with a red, blue, or even green shade if you want to have some fun with it.
