References are always good things, "winging it" has a tendency to lead to things that don't make much sense, and using a reference will better help you show your audience what you want to~
Well when you draw a fedora on Pikachu's head, its kind of a give-in that the fedora in question was indeed made to fit on a Pikachu's head. Pikachu is a solid object and the object will interact with other objects, so a fedora is placed on Pikachu's head should look like a fedora placed on Pikachu's head, meaning the brim will curve because the ears are pushing it up, causing it to fold.
This is similar to the one illustrated in your painting (I didn't realize it was a painting~). I don't know how to paint so I'm pretty sure it would be difficult to fix but its always a good idea to keep things like how objects interact with each other in mind~
