SPOILER ALERT!

In "the shadow rising" he buys it from a darkfriend peddler.

in the eternal words of good 'ol R.J.

RAFO

But my theory is it is an extension of his soul, the hat weaves as the hat wills. Word.

Amazing interpretation of Mat (and his hat). I like the happy go lucky expression on his face. Hope to see more characters from WoT sometime, cause awesome writing would meet awesome art.

And he covered his tracks well too. Four books before the hat was introduced.

Anyway, this is Mat, perfectly.

...Though I think the foxhead medallion was supposed to be done in profile, to show off the eye. Not that I'm splitting hairs, I always thought that this way would look better.

Hah! true, though I liked that one person's "homeless" comment, I suppose Matt's supposed to look a bit more swag at first but to hell with that...

Yeah! feel free to , it's no problem.

Whoa haha, thanks. Let's see, this is just pretty much drawboard/oekaki style stuff.

In photoshop for instance you could -
make a layer, use the pencil tool without any pressure sensitivity (so it gets that rough blocky look)
Since it's pixelated, it's easy to simply fill solids with the Paintbucket. Then it's just select and shade. So pretty economical and rough, just the way I like it.
