Well, I hope everyone had a great weekend! I got almost everything I wanted to get finished done, so it was a pretty good weekend for me. Anyways, who knows what Friday is?! Well, it’s Cinco de Mayo Day, so I decided to make that my theme for most of this week. Though I don’t particularly celebrate this day, it’s one of my old friends birthdays. Alright, let’s get started with “Sombrero Hat…”
Everything I used for this post I have purchased at various places but you can purchase them on Amazon.com. Just click on the links above for that particular item.
To create my “Sombrero Hat,” I started off with drawing an outline with my pencil. The first thing I did was draw the ‘bell-curve’ shape to give me the middle of the hat. From there, I carefully drew a curved lined directly under my bell curve. Then, I drew two small lines on either side of my curved line going downward where I then added another curved line to connect the two lines. To finish off the outline, I added to small curve lines on each side of my bell-curve connecting it to the top of the small side lines. This made the “Sombrero Hat” more complete looking.
Next, to give it more of an authentic look of a “Sombrero Hat,” I added wavy and zig-zag lines inside my ‘bell-curve.’ Between the two curved lines at the bottom, I added nine lines with circles at the end of each. I like to think of these as ‘pom-poms.’ To finish off my “Sombrero Hat,” I then added two ‘strings’ at the bottom.
After I was pleased with the way everything looked, I used my Tombow Dual Brush Pen number N15 to outline everything. This makes it easier to give the drawing a clean look so I can place it under another piece of Canson Marker Paper and use the Tombow Dual Brush Pen colors I wanted to use without having to erase all the pencil outline lines.
Finally, as stated above, I used my Tombow Dual Brush Pen number N15 outline copy under another piece of Canson Marker Paper and used some other colors out of my Tombow Dual Brush Pens. First, I used my pen number 993 to outline the outside part. Then, I used my pen number N15 to outline my ‘strings’ hanging from the bottom. Next, I used my pen number 815 to outline my zig-zag lines and number 665 to outline my wavy lines. Alternating between pen numbers 815 and 665 I drew over my ‘pom-poms.’
Once I finished my outline, I carefully colored in each thing. Using the opposite color for my wavy and zig-zag lines, as well as my ‘pom-poms,’ I used my 815 and 665 pen numbers. Then, I used pen number 993 to fill in the rest of the hat part and filled in my strings with my N15.
