Simple technique for creating a heart shape in Illustrator

In this video we create a perfect heart shape in Adobe Illustrator:

Start by selecting the ellipse tool and dragging a circle. You can make it a perfect circle by holding down shift.

Select the convert anchor point tool and click on the bottom point to make it sharp.

Switch back to the direct selection tool and drag the top point down.

You can also grab the tangent handle and drag it up to shape the top of the heart.

We need to drag the second tangent independent of the first one, so let’s use the convert anchor point tool to drag it.

That’s how easy it is to make a heart in Illustrator.

Thanks for watching and see you next time on!
