This week we want you to create a hat asset that could be used as a prop in a game, film, digital render, or drawing then tag it #RookiesWeeklyDrills and #hat.

This week your challenge is to find a hat and go to town building it for use in a game, film, render or drawing. There are no limitations to what hat you choose. You could choose a trucker hat, cowboy hat, beanie, Fedora hat, poker visor, outback hat or even a french beret. Whether you are drawing or rendering, pay close attention to how the hat is made. Where the seams are. What the construction process involves. This will really help you create something worthy of your portfolio.
