A simple turn around of my character so far. More experiments with trying to show emotion without using a face.
For these drawings I was trying to show emotion using shadow on the top of the stand. It's as close to applying a 'face' to the hat that I want to have.
Another idea I had was that the hat stand finds a box. the box opens (I need to work on how it would) to reveal a new hat. The hat stand puts the new hat on and spots itself in the mirror. It's astonished to see its reflection.
