Nice work Chef, here is what I think and what you could improve (You may ignore if you like it):

Positive:
- You have a nice imagination
- Original
- The band on the hat that is recolorable is a nice thought

Negative:
- A bit too much like Top Hat
- Too long (high), make it shorter and rounder
- Make the band thicker and the hat lighter
- Need to be fixed: The band when the player turns backwards, needs to be thicker of 1 pixel

Regards.

new colour.. some shading fixes.. but i dont want to strong light reflections at this hat because it is not a helmet..
...which one is better? normal size, 1 pixel smaller or 2 pixel smaller?
it have to be big enough to hide the hairstyles..

I like the -2 pixel hat. Howeve you need to fix something: when character doesn't face us (his back towards us), the band on the back of the hat is 1 pixel too thin compared to other frames.

Nice job though! Keep it up!

eeerrmm... nope it isnt..
as you can see in my example the front side (1) is lower than the back(2). therefore the back covers the band to the half..

My suggestion for simple xml is to make the png image match an existing hat's frame alignment, then test and adjust on your localhost server. We prefer unique icons, but will also accept the "standing"->"down" frame of the equipment as the icon. If Chief can do that himself, that would help out a great deal. If Chief needs any help with this, PM me.
Current character is "Abolish".

Hello.

Hello ChefChelios,i really like this hat you made and everything you made cause you've got great
skill on pixel art but i think we dont really need hats in TheManaWorld for now.I think we need
more clothes here.It seems that almosteveryone(not everyone everyone),
just try to draw a hat but once again stop drawing hats its enough for now.Start to use your skills
to make different kind of clothes cause we dont really have much of them in Tmw.

Thank You

EDIT:Just my opinion,ignore it if you think that i am wrong.

You're right anyway, we need more clothes and less hats.

you are right... 100%

but do you know how much work it is to pixel clothes for tmw?
you have to pixel 69 frames..for male... and 69 frames for female...

= 138 frames
(and the new playerset 1.5 have much more frame if i remember right)

to pixel hats is my hobby... it is not my full time job xD

i tryed to create my own armor and gloves (red boxing gloves xD) before a long time... i failed.. cuz it was fXXXXXXX(word zensored) boring!!!
thats why each dev/artist have my full respect who pixel clothes!!!

but you will never see me doing it :P

i will post my armor and gloves just for you but all other pixel artists have to look away :lol: :lol: :lol: cuz it it high quality crap :D

eeehehehe look at the armor... i gave up to pixel it after just 6 frames... rofl

i am and i ever will be a pixel noob!!! 8)

regards Chef :D
