I'd like to create a heart shaped object.
I don't know by now how to create round objects or curves.
I'm just trying the tutorial.
Could anybody help me?

Hi !

OpenGL is a low level API, it does have any functionality to do this kind of stuff, you could create it out of nurb curves, I think there is a heart example in either to red book or some where, I know that it is included with the Mesa example application anyway.

Another way is to create the shape with some kind of modeler and then import it to your application (but that requires you to get a loader for the specific format)
