Down Under style cowboy hat...

My girls bought this hat for me for 1 dollar at a garage sale, and I enjoyed it so much I thought I’d take a shot at making a digital version. I’m not quite happy with the texture… it looks too grainy. I’m trying to give the appearance of a fine suede leather. Also, there is stitching in loops around the brim of the hat, pretty much where the mesh loops are in the blend file. I haven’t figured out yet how to make the stitches happen.


hey hey Thats not bad at all! I would use a colorramp to make the suede look real. Also the stiches can be done by modeling a curve around the rim, and creating a single stich and then dupicating it along the curve :slight_smile:
