How to Draw a Witch Hat Step-by-Step
Now, I am going to show you the step-by-step tutorial of drawing a witch hat. This will be easy to follow along with, so let’s get started!
Step-01: First of all, draw the brim of the hat. For this, make an ellipse horizontally. Keep the ellipse as big as you want to see the hat brim.
Step-02: Now, make a two slanted lines going upwards from inside the ellipse. Connect the two lines in a way that makes a pointy corner of the hat.
Step-03: At this stage, you have to complete the basic shape of the hat by connecting the two points of the slanted lines inside the brim.
Step-04: Draw another line similarly above the the line you have connected just now inside the top part of the hat. It will be the belt on the hat.
Step-05: Now, make a button on the belt. For this, drawing two square box will be enough.
Color It: Now it’s time to color the witch hat. I have used deep blue watercolor for the whole hat body, green for the hat belt and yellow for the button.
But you can use any colors you want. Just make sure to color it neatly so that your witch hat drawing looks awesome!
Drawing a Wrinkled Pointy Witch Hat
Step-01: Firstly, you just need to draw some slanted lines which will be the top of witch hat.
Draw two slanted lines both on the left and right side in same height. Keep their height as much as you want to see the top of the hat.
Above the left line, draw another slanted line to make the pointy look. Make sure to draw them lightly so that you can erase them later if needed.
Step-02: From the lower side, connect the two slanted lines to give a cone like shape. And o the right above side, draw a wrinkled pointy corner using curves.
Step-03: Now, draw an ellipse all around the lower portion of hat top to make the brim.
Step-04: On the cone side draw a hat belt with a button horizontal lines and rectangle boxes.
Color It: Finally, it’s time to color the hat. I have used watercolor all over the hat. You can see, I have put black on the top side, blue on the brim, green on the belt and yellow on the belt button.
However, you are always free to use any color combination you want. Don’t forget to outline the whole drawing with a black fine line pen.
