This tutorial explains how to work with the
turtle library and create different shapes in Python. We start by first importing the
turtle.shape() Function to Create Shapes in Python
Turtle library needs a Python version installed, supporting the
Tkinter library since it uses
Tk for the underlying graphics.
We will work here with the
turtle.shape() function to set the turtle shape to a shape with the given name. The shape name given must exist in the Turtle Screen’s shape library.
We can choose between circle, square, turtle, arrow, triangle and classic.
Let us now start working with the
turtle.forward(70) turtle.shape("circle") turtle.right(60) turtle.forward(100) turtle.shape("arrow") turtle.right(60) turtle.forward(100)
In the above code, we first create the default shape. Then the circle and arrow shapes, respectively.
Let’s see the above code’s output below.
We have successfully created the turtle shapes using the code above. Hence we can successfully create shapes using the above method.
