The written step-by-step video tutorial:
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Draw an angled line similar in shape to a wide letter V for the front part of the graduation cap. Sketch lightly at first so you can easily erase if you make a mistake. Darken the lines only when you get the shape right.
Step 2: At the top, draw another angled line for the back portion of the graduation cap. The resulting shape should be similar to a diamond.
Step 3: In the middle of the diamond shape, draw a small oval where the tassel will be fastened to the mortarboard.
Step 4: From the oval, draw a line that curves over the side of the graduation cap for the first part of the tassel. Draw a second curved line to make the tassel thicker. At the bottom, draw a small circle.
Step 5: To the left of the small circle, draw a couple of sloping lines for the sides of the fringes. At the bottom, draw a series of short strokes for the ends of the fringes. Add a few lines inside the shape of the fringes on the graduation cap's tassel.
