 Hello Everyone, Welcome to  my blog. Today I am going to make some icons using tricky & easiest Way. I really enjoyed working on this blog.

Here I made all icons using these simple shapes.


Firstly I mention some colour codes that i used in my tutorial.

Red              :   ed143d

Light Blue     :   00bbd7

Blue              :  0235b7

Orange         :   ff6000

pink               :   e81962

Icon - 1 : Heart

To make Heart icon you need only two circle & a square (I make triangle from Square)

Take ellipse tool (u) from tool panel and make two circles of 80px. Now to make triangle, follow below steps .

Step - 1 : Create a Rectangle of 90 x 90 px, and set border with red colour (border width - 4).


Step - 2 : Remove one upper anchor point of rectangle. (take pen tool -> press ctr & click on border -> click on anchor point you want to remove)

Step - 3 : Now press ctr+t and rotate it at 45 degree.

This is easiest way to make a perfect triangle. Now set these all as shown in image and fill with red colour. ( here i make shapes having only border, so that is easy to set properly)

Icon - 2 : Water Drop

To make icons of Water drop, draw a circle & a triangle same as we made before. set border with light blue colour and set at proper place as shown in image. (here you may need to adjust points of triangle, to set it properly)


After you set shapes at proper place, fill it with light blue colour.

To make first shape, follow below steps.

Step - 1: Draw a Rectangle of 130 X 130 px.


Step - 2 : Press ctr+t , decrease the height at 0.0.

Step-3 : Right click image & select option perspective. Make perspective from upper angle at 33.1.

Now make a rounded rectangle having below size. and draw a circle of 50px.
