Not bad at all, I'd continue working on it.

very nice idea, and it looks good. (I can't give you any advise, but I hope the more skilled artists of this forum can)

A fairly solid piece of pixellation.

Why is this not getting proper attention?

I'm not sure about the outline, though.

Welcome aboard.

It looks very nice! :D Though I must confess that I first saw it as a wooden bowl turn upside-down. Perhaps making the rim narrower, giving it the appearance of a wide, thin, hollow cone? [Wikipedia: Conical straw hat]

I believe the thick rim was what confused me at first, but it could also have been the texture which I find looking like something between wood and straw, not sure what gives me that feeling though.

And welcome to the forums, a nice introduction I dare say! :mrgreen:

Thanks a lot for the comments. Ces I think I understand what you mean, had a similar feeling about it. Now I changed the height which makes the hat wider.

Indeed, shape looks ok. IMO it is a bit textureless. Also don't be afraid of 8-bit alpha channel. Maybe something like this?

I really like how iru got the structure to be clear. I might be a bit off with this crappy laptop monitor of mine, but the tone choice for the structural highlights could be the point where the potential for improvement still exists.

I just made outline thinner, and add some highlight on opacity 30%. It is just cheap trick ;P

I'm sorry to say this but I think the perspective is a bit off. looks like a front view

The texture is very nice indeed, I would add some brown dark dots on the borders so you can imitate straws.

Shape is good, my advice is to slim it a bit the on borders

I simply perceived it as non-round.
