Modelling a Simple Heart in Blender

As part of a project I’m working on I needed a 3-D heart model using Blender, nothing too serious but thought I’d upload this just something simple.

Heart 2

SO to start off I started with a nurbs sphere, while in edit mode I box selected the edges of the sphere and pulled them up making the basic outline of the heart. Heart 3.png

Now with the basic outline done I need to go into the side view to make the heart more narrow like so.

Now that the model has been narrowed I just need to smooth out the edges of the heart and adjust the shape that I need.

With the model smoothed and shaped the next step is adding a texture/material to it, for this I’ll just go with a glossy red finish for this model.

Heart 6

With the texture applied the final thing to do is set the camera and the lighting rig up and render the object out.

And there you have it, an incredibly simple 3-D model heart made in Blender, not too hard to do and good practise!
