In this tutorial, I will show you how to draw a nice cartoon cowboy hat! You don't need to be a ranch worker or riding a horse in a rodeo to own a famous cowboy hat.
This particular object (also very popular among country music lovers) is visually fascinating! So let's try to draw a simple cowboy hat in order to understand why it is so popular! You can start with the video lesson below. The written tutorial can be found after the video. :)
Draw a rectangle to illustrate the crown of your hat. Notice that this shape is almost the one of a square.
Next, add a triangle just like shown above to create the rolled part of the hat.
Complete this step by drawing a rectangle in front and a circle on the far side.
Refine the outline of the crown and add a crease on top of your cowboy hat.
You can also refine the front part of the object by joining the rectangle and the circle together.
Finish the sketching part by working on your triangle. Your hat should look fine by now.
Draw some details like the hatband near the bottom of the crown. You can also add a few lines (like shown above) to add a realistic touch to your artwork.
Color your hat with a brown tone and paint the hatband using a color similar to the one of the skin.
Of course, you can add some shadows on your object to make this one more appealing. Great! You've just created a perfect cowboy hat using a few shapes and your drawing abilities! I hope you had fun drawing this particular object and don't forget to practice!
