Hei.

Nice idea this art-project forum.

I draw this winter hat. We use this kind of hat mainly winter, cold temperature air conditions. It is made by hand and material is woolfilament (if i translate word right). We called this type of hat many names like, pipa, pipo, villamyssy, villapipo.

I think that round of world is many thousand type of hat. What is yours hat or what type hat you use or like that is most useful or common at your country?

Or, what type hat is best art-maker hat?

Best Regard. Heikki.

Here's a hat from where I live. That is of course my imagination. Every time I feel like putting it on that furry little bugger goes hopping off with it. :)

Very cool. Thanks, Sweedie. This thread is great, it's a lesson not only in beautiful art but also culture and history. (In some cases it's the culture and history of "imagi-Nation," but no less relevant because of it!) =]

Hi All, this is my first ArtRage picture.

Thanks Heikki for a great Art project idea.

My hat is a 'Facinator' they're big news come racing season in Australia,and many Ladies wear one instead of a tradtional 'hat' as such-theyre not great to protect you from anything like the sun or wind but come 'Ladies Day' at the begining of the horse racing calander and 'The Melbourne Cup' they're everywhere, as the Ladies compete to be noticed, and win some of the 'Fashion on the Feild' competitions that get run.

This particular Facinator is not based on a particular real one, but on some of the ideas I've seen before .

Fashmir
05-19-2006, 08:58 PM
Selby that's delightful. You make it sound like such fun to go to an event like that too. Thanks for posting this.

i love the way the feather curls naturally, gracefully, nice one selby! :)

Selby
05-20-2006, 01:05 PM
Fashmir-thanks :) I've not actually been to the Melbourne Cup myself-its rather far from where I live, I'm up in New South Wales a little bit above Sydney on the map, and its all the way down in Melbourne in Victoria-but it is really heavily televised here, and all the events surrounding it, and many places like companies and schools and restauraunts and such, have special Lunches on Cup day which I've been to and they are a bunch of fun and do have their own hat competitions etc

Down here its known as 'the race which stops a Nation' and it really is. Most folks tune in for at least the 3mins or so of the race,everything stops,businesses stop, school stops, and the whole country seems to be holding its breath till the first horse crosses the line.

Gita-thanks *blush*:oops: its been great to have your warm welcome here.

Enchanter-thanks-the feather was the bit I was most happy with.I really wanted the main bit of the Facinator to stand out from the background and look a bit more round..which they are cause they sit on yer head...y'now heads beeing rounded and all and not flat as my pic suggests :( but with a bit more practice it'll happen.

Part of the struggle was working on just the one layer,which due to bad practice and a bit of 'used to photoshop' lazyness I'm not used to at all-kept painting over my hat when i tried to add shadow under to make it pop out more

Im really looking forward to getting the full version in a few weeks time when I'll have loads of layer fun...and the glitter tool,I'm busting to play with the glitter tool :)

New hat and something life-situation under it.

heikki

MoHei Deni.

Clear colors that red peaked cap.

I dont make comments that backround because your drawing is your paintings. Hmm. Comments can devide three main gategoryes, good, normal, bad. and then more gategoryes like, feelings, issue, colors, mind, etc. Of cource school numbers too. And never can actually know how draw tomorrow and what draw after that.

I draw new hat and it is also same kind, but different colors.

I use this my hat mainly autumn, spring and warm winter. Then when i fish or hunt or take photos or just walk and travelling nature unknown paths like reindeers.

Please.
More hat can draw artrage-frends. Use free imagination and mind and artrage2 program possibilityes.

Quality and accurace of drawing is not so important. Colors, feelings and imagination is and still keep some kind of use-issue. Maybe some real hat-makers start to make these hats and we see at street our draw-hat to going real world.

Well I just meant, that I wasn's very happy for my background =P But thanks for replying! I like your version of the hat, especially the "inside" of it!

This is actually a portrait of my hat I wear every day. (Sorry its so small, I painted this on a 80x80 for use as an avatar on the forums)

http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f22/Soldan/myhat.jpg

It is a cheap old cowboy hat that I bought for about $20. My uncle and my best friend hate it and they put a $100 bounty on it. Talk about a good investment. :D

When people who know me see me with out it they always say "Where's your hat at?".

Selby
07-01-2006, 10:04 AM
wow Sweedie great stuff -love your Vendel helmet and the Saftey hat...you have such a great way of capturing everyday objects and making them alive with feeling

Few hat has come more, thanks all.

I think that this earth-ball has many more hat-style.

Hei artrage-frends, use your skills, art-mind.

Draw a hat. New hat, old hat, your hat, imagine hat, funny hat, future hat, or, hmm, why not draw artrage2-hat, or hmm. maybe santa need a new hat?

Please, join this hats-project art-rage frends, round of world. Quality is not a main thing at this gallery-project, free imagination is.

Finland is now quite hot so i dont need hat today. (+25-28 and summer)

:)

Selby
07-12-2006, 11:31 AM
this is a whimsical remembering of an 'easterbonnet' hat from an easter hat parade at school when i was very little maybe only 6. Everyone decorated a hat and wore it around in a parade while the teachers and parents admired and there was usually a prize for best hat but the competitions were a bit rigged-every child usually got at least a lolly or something..best creativity, most colourful.......lots of fun anyhow. i had foil covered chocolate eggs and fluffy chicken models on this particular one

Selby

Aged P
07-12-2006, 06:11 PM
Hi Selby,

What a memory jogger!

I have a photo of my daughter and granddaughter arriving for an easter visit in hats like that about 10 years ago. They would kill me if I posted the pic!

That voille scarf around the crown came out very well, floaty and transparent.

Fashmir
07-12-2006, 07:14 PM
Selby- That's a sweet hat. Complete with color, ribbons and smooching chickens.

heikki
10-04-2006, 08:10 PM
:)

Finally i made this my thought ready. Artrage hat pixpaint.

Because this program is so good it need ar2 hat. This is one image of ar2-hat.

This hat-style is not so common here in north, mainly summertime hikers and flyfishers use this kind style hat. I have one this kind style hat when i fish, without ar2-ornament :D

Hmm. This artrage2 program is perhaps quite usefull also to design new cloths, i think.

Hope this hat fit all artrage-pixpainters head all over this earth-ball. :D

More hats can draw at this thread......

Beautifully shaded/blended felt Fez.

good job on the fez,its really convincingly round looking and it looks really vivid against the green background too :)

thank you Selby and Aged P. Fez is not popular yet, but touristes love this hat. It is nostalgic and characteristic of old turkish people...

Hi guys! I've been a member of this forum for a while now, and I frequently stop by to visit, even though it hasn't been long enough a visit for me to actually participate.

Sadly, though, I haven't been able to use ArtRage at all since I got it (I was referred by my cousin, who is totally in love with it), but I decided to join the forums anyway... that way, when this semester is finally over, I can start playing with AR and ask you for advice.

Just as a quick introduction, I'm a 22-year-old dominican girl studying to be a graphic designer...... meaning, I have absolutely no background when it comes to drawing/painting, etc.... only the minimum required to pass certain classes.... however, I'd like to learn... and since one of my real-life problems is mixing the color exactly as I want it, a digital painting tool -to me- is WONDERFUL!!

Anyway.... this project is very interesting.. and it's a good way to learn more about other countries (or, well..... their hats). So I decided to draw up one of our most famous hats... according to tourists, since they all leave the country with this hat.... it's made of plantain leaves... I don't know if you can tell, but they weave the single strands together to come up with it... nifty, huh?

Pardon the long post.... but who knows when I'll have time to sit down and write to you guys again... :(

PD: Not to make this any longer, but I did it with the mouse... I want to invest in a good tablet, but goot doesn't usually mean "cheap"... :P

Hi, Delog. Thanks your hat painting and story of that hat history. :D


Hi, elililisa... hmm. is it your first name or....this internet world is so earthball wide that actually cannot known is name, name or a nickname or username.... :wink:

Thanks your nice hat. I have use this artrage since march and mainly i have use mouse without artistic backround so much. I buy that wacom small one pen-tablet and i use it, but it is not so good. Better one is on my shopping list,,,,like many other things also...money dont grow on the tree... :?


Keep your pixpaintings colors fresh and wild. :D

( I have name these computer painting to pixpainting comes words pixell-painting.)

Hey heikki.... my name is Elisa.. I just decided to repeat the "li" for, err, no real purpose at all.... :wink:

I will invest in a good tablet.. probably around christmas... but I need to buy so many other things that I don't really know if it'll be this christmas or next year's.... I'll get one someday!

Thanks joseph.

I use same kind when i was a contruction works, only color was different, it was blue. I was a electrician and here Finland those safety helmet colors are, yellow, blue, red, white, hmm,,, any others dont remember now...perhaps.

Earlier i painted a fascinator.....Well today is Melbourne cup day here so in honour of day.

A new hat....the fashion this year seems to be inbetween a fascinator and a hat.. a large confection involving lots of raffia that sits on the side of the head and with loads of flowers under the brim.

Like your hat, Selby and your painting.
These hats are no longer used at the Post Office, but old ones are still sometimes given to part-timers.
Tried tracing for the first time in ArtRage ( surprisingly difficult) and took a stab at using (not always successfully) layers. And spent way too much time with finicky details!

Hat sat by the monitor on a glass shelf in front of window.

Fine hat selby. Do you have problem with water in autralian...i read news...hmm you must order snow in Finland. :D

Fine pixpainting hinket. It take time to paint quality hat.

I have under workprocess one wood-hat what i see on local country-market....hope that i get it ready some day. Sometimes feels that this world is so many things to paint that dont know what direction to focus. :?

D Akey
08-23-2007, 12:48 PM
Hahah. I just got it. . .

The 'pillbox' hat looks like it's for Alice, when she's 10 foot tall, and a couple or three decades past her Victorian, Lewis Carrol phase.

Actually I'm not up on pillbox hats. Weren't they the rage in the 20s and 30s?

Could be way off on that.

Cool image. Has a surrealistic, pillowy feel.


And the second metallic one (?) is great as well. Nice form. It's got an interesting surface. I just thought of metal, but on second look, there was a crafts thing I recall where you put down glue and little colored rocks, a bit bigger than sand. And this is a little reminiscent of that look. Not exactly.

Yet it doesn't feel quite like paint. more dimensional surface. I really like it.

ok ladies and gents its that time of year again its spring (horse) racing carnival here in Melbourne and the biggest race of all the racing calender 'The Melbourne Cup', is on on tuesday afternoon so its time to dust off your top hats and get those fascinators and sun hats happening because you need to look your best for the big day (because as we all know the horses are really a sideline to the pretty ladies and daper gents ) ...im working on my 'hat' now (soon to be seen here) and i encourage you all to make a silly, beautiful, fashionable,or fanciful concoction somewhat resembling a hat for the occasion :)

Yes she is very like me...but then i was imagining wearing my hat for cup day as i drew. hehe shes a bit of a glamorised version though rather more refined and coiffed than i usually look but then again if id actually gone to the races(rather than watching it on tv while in a cafe) i probly would have dolled up to the nines too:D

Pat and Alexandra, these hats are lovely. I use hats a lot, but would love to wear one of these hats you ladies painted, but I am afraid that the neigborhood dogs might hunt me down!:eek:

Well painted and very nice styles.:)

Hello,

My second attempt on a portrait. I found a picture of this baby in the internet, a hill tribe indigenous to Asia, Hmong Tribe. I chose to paint the child simply because of the expression. Ones can find this tribe anywhere from China down to SE Asia. In Thailand, they live in mountains and I have a soft touch for this tribe due to my father’s experience. He was a patrol policeman, on patrol most of his time in far-away mountains at the border of Thailand and Burma. When he came home, he would tell me of his experience, one I remembered so well was about the hill tribe people. He said they were very generous, would feed him and his troop the best thing they had every time he stopped by. Even the food was not what he was used to, he would try to eat so not to offend; one of the food was tad poles mixed with pepper and grilled inside bananas leaves.

This people finally got the Thai citizenship less than 10 years ago with the help of the King and Queen of Thailand who said “People who love the country are better for protection around the border than soldiers. These people deserve the citizenship.” If my father was alive, he would be very happy.

These people are better off now, thanks to the King’s mother and the King himself who taught them how to grow other plants than opium.

This tribe was the most important one who helped the Americans during Vietnam War and many of them moved to the USA. They are not doing as well as other immigrants such as Vietnamese immigrations due to lacking education and traditional family values are so strong that it is difficult to assimilate.

Sticker sprays were use for the coins and beads, a Photoshop brush was use for the blouse pattern, thanks to all people who created them.

Any comments and advice is always appreciated.

This is a caricature of me as a child. (I'm making the 'caricature' point clear because I wasn't exactly gorgeous as a kid but neither did I look quite this strange.) I remember this photo of my brothers & sisters & I sitting on the back porch steps one Sunday. I had this hat on that I had to wear to church. I hated the hat because it stayed on with a thin elastic strap that went under my chin... very annoying... and if it accidentally slipped from your fingers, that strap would SNAP (Ouch!!) against your skin. (weird, but it feels like I still have issues about it or something..) Oh yeah, I'm smiling because it's Easter!

Been looking at this thread and it seems such fun I just had to have a go. Went for a walk down in Gloop Wood and came across this little hat house. Hope you like it:):):)

Here in Italy we obviously have plenty of either folkloristic, ancient or elegant hat types (such as the legendary Borsalino or the Paglietta, vaguely similar, but older than to the most famous Ecuadorian Panam hats).
Anyway I would start here with this: a coppola!

Thank You, dear Sandra!
A quickly sketched addition: here's a traditional Sardinian masculine costume with the typical hat ....
I also made this gentleman to look like one of the possible typical Sardinian man as features. I'm not sure I provided him with a fierce enough glance.

Here's the traditional hat of the little town of Scanno, placed near the omonymous lake, in Abruzzo, my region, east of Rome, Italy.
In that place there's also, inter alia, a great and ancient jewelry and lace craftsmanship. It's in marvellous nature of the Central Appennines mountain area where the highest peak tops to almost 3.000 m.

Stunning painting Cesare, from the wistful look on her face right down to her beautiful detailed clothes. Beautiful work:)

I did a whole series of hat paintings, but rather than being an ethnic- generated one, this is just a contemporary hat. Ladies used to never go out without a hat and gloves. That was a strict rule in my (finishing school ?) college. For some strange reason, I have become a hat-type person even though hardly anyone wears hats now, unless you are going to the Kentucky Derby. This hat and lady would fit in well there.

This hat can be worn and it brings a nice look to a lady.

I am with you about hats, I still do wear hats, especially out in the sun and I wear it indoors when I shop too, could be one of my thing for the sun can burn my skin pretty fast.

So glad for your contribution.:)
