Gather Your Materials
First things first, you’ll need some materials—namely, some good old fashioned paper, a pencil, and an eraser. You should also have a ruler handy and a set of colored pencils to make your masterpiece even more impressive. With these tools in hand, you’re ready to begin.
Draw the Midsection
Now that you have all of your materials, it’s time to get drawing! Start with the midsection of the top hat—this section should be the largest and you’ll use your ruler to make sure the sides are even. Once you’ve got the shape down, use your pencil to draw the basis for the rest of your top hat.
Draw the Brim
Once the midsection is complete, it’s time to add a few more details. Draw a curved line from one end of the midsection to the other to create the brim of the hat. If you’d like, you can draw a few more curved lines at the top of the brim to give it more of a realistic look.
Add a Shelf
Now, the tricky part! To add the shelf, use your pencil to draw a curved line at the top of the midsection. Then, draw two lines that intersect at the top of the midsection and connect to the curved line. This will create the outline of the shelf of your top hat.
The Finishing Touches
It’s finally time to add those finishing touches. Using your ruler and your eraser, add in any details that you’d like. If you want, you can draw a few lines around the brim of the hat to make it more interesting. Once you’ve finished adding the details, you should have a stunning top hat drawing!
Coloring Your Creation
Now, the fun part! Using your colored pencils, you can begin to add color and depth to your masterpiece. You can even add a few small details with colored pencil if you’d like. When you’ve finished coloring your top hat, all that’s left to do is step back and appreciate your work!
Adding the Final Touches
To add the final touches, you can use a white glue or even a bit of glitter to give your drawing an extra wow factor. Once the glue or glitter has dried, you can admire your marvelous creation. And voila! You’ve just created your very own top hat drawing.
