HOW TO DRAW A BROKEN HEART IN MS WORD PART 2

MICROSOFT WORD DRAWING PROJECT No. 28 PART 2

TITLE:   HOW TO DRAW A BROKEN HEART IN MS WORD
TYPE:   GRAPHIC DESIGN
(A)  HOW TO DRAW THE PICTURE?
First, draw a portion of the heart shape. Then, duplicate it and flip it horizontally. Join the two portions and you’ll get a full heart shape. I once drew a cow head in Adobe Photoshop using the same principle. To create a full heart shape, cover the broken area with an Oval shape and then do the following:  Format > Shape Outline > No Outline. If you break someone’s heart, you make someone you love or someone who loves you feels very sad. Try not to do that, it’s bad.


(B)  HOW TO CREATE THE EFFECTS?

There are some new features in MS Word 2007 that I find useful for creating attractive visual effects to drawing objects. Adding effects can enhance the illustration.  In the Shadow Effects group, select the shadow styles of your choice to create the desired effects. I made use of Shadow Effects to create the emboss effects for the drawing objects in this project. This is what I meant by improvising.
         Here are the steps on how to create the visual effects for this illustration:
(a)    Format > Shape Fill > Red > Gradient > Dark Variations > Linear Right.
          Shadow Effects > Additional Shadow Styles > Shadow Style 18.
(b)    Format > Shape Fill > Red > Gradient > Dark Variations > Linear Right.
          Shadow Effects > Additional Shadow Styles > Shadow Style 18.
(c)    Format > Shape Fill > Light Blue > Gradient > Light Variations > Linear Up.
