How do I draw a heart shape in inkscape?
I'd prefer the method to draw it using two circles and a rectangle because I think that's the simplest method. But other methods are also OK. I need a not too curvy heart. Something like this.
I tried putting two circles together and a square below them. But I'm not getting a perfect heart. The intersection points of the square and circles are edgy. I want to know how much distance there should be between the circles and how big the square should be when compared to the circles. Here is my effort's result.
Create a square.
Create a semicircle with the same diameter:
Create a circle.
Move the round control in the circle tool to make it a semicircle, with the straight side being perfectly horizontal and facing downwards.
Select your square, copy, select your semicircle, editâ€¯â†’â€¯paste sizeâ€¯â†’â€¯paste width. Be sure to have the proportion lock activated (the little lock in the toolbar).
Open the Align and distribute tab, choose relative to as first selected.
- Select your square and then your semicircle.
- align bottom edge of objects to top edge of anchor.
- align left edges.
Duplicate the semicircle and rotate by 90â€¯Â° clockwise, repeat stepÂ 3 analogously.
Select all three objects, pathâ€¯â†’â€¯object to path and pathâ€¯â†’â€¯union.
Objectâ€¯â€¯â†’â€¯transformâ€¯â†’â€¯rotate by 45â€¯ÌŒÂ°.
