I have been asked a number of times if there is a quick easy way to make a heart shape with PDN. The answer is yes!

Polar Transformation Plugin by Madjik


Default 800 x 600 canvas.


1. On a new layer draw two diagonal lines

2. Effects -> Distort -> Polar Transformation & select “transform rectangular to polar”.

3. Select “Magic Wand”, set tolerance to “0” and select the inside of the heart shape.



4. Add a new layer and fill the inside of the selected heart shape with whatever color you like using the “paint bucket”, and turn off the layer with the lines on it.

Done!

Easy enough. That's a wicked cute heart. Or you could always use the Random Fill Shape Plugin (hearts one), but then again, the hearts wouldn't be as cartoony as your's.

That's a plugin.

Pyro, you (or at least I) begin to forget what is and what is not a plugin after a while... Link added!

And yes Helen, very cute and simple... which I guess is why I threw it into the newbie tut. section.

Few more ideas to obtain other heart shapes:

is a character in many fonts, so you could also use only the text tool...

J is in some fonts half of heart, you need to rotate it and mirror it to build a heart shape as well...

Starting with the image with 2 diagonal lines, the shape3d secret #1 give similar results http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?showtopic=21329

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
