Draw Color Filled Shapes In Python Turtle

Draw Color Filled Shapes In Python Turtle

It is easy to draw color filled shapes in Python Turtle. You can do so using the begin_fill() and end_fill() functions. These two functions are used to enclose a set of Python Turtle commands that will draw a filled shape using the current fill color. So if the current pen color is blue, then any shape you draw will be filled with the color blue. If the pen is currently red, then any shape drawn will be filled with red.…

Change Pen Color In Python Turtle

Change Pen Color In Python Turtle

Drawing shapes and learning how to move the pen in Python Turtle is fun, but it gets much more interesting when you add some color to your turtle drawings. In Python Turtle, you can do a lot with colors. To get started with colors, the first thing you can do is change the color of the pen in Turtle. You can set the pen to be any color you like or change it at any time in your program.…

How To Draw Triangles In Python Turtle

triangle python turtle

Drawing with Turtle in Python is really fun. In the past handful of tutorials, we learned how to import the Turtle module for use in our programs saw how to make the turtle (pen) move on the canvas, made the turtle change directions on the canvas, saw how to use loops in turtle, and made drawings of shapes using variables. Now we will take a look at drawing another type of Polygon, the triangle using the Turtle library in Python.…

How To Use Variables In Python Turtle

python turtle variables

We’re having some fun drawing different shapes with the Python Turtle library, but we can make the functions that draw those shapes more interesting by incorporating variables into the programs. By using a variable when drawing a square, for example, we can control how far the turtle moves when making a line for each side of the square. This way, we can use one function that can draw any size square we like by making use of a variable.…

Draw Turtle Shapes With Functions

Draw Turtle Shapes With Functions

Functions in Python are a convenient way to package up several lines of code into one simple keyword that can be called. When the keyword is called, all of the code contained in the function runs. In the tutorial covering loops and Turtle, we used a loop to draw a square. Now, we can put all of that logic into a simple draw_square() function, and anytime we want to draw a square we simply call the draw_square() function.…

How To Use Loops With Python Turtle

How To Use Loops With Python Turtle

Drawing shapes with Turtle in Python can be accomplished using a combination of the forward() and right() functions working together. The turtle direction tutorial has an example of how we can draw a square using these commands in Turtle. The example works, but it is not very elegant. We had to call each forward() and right() function a total of four times each in order to draw the square.…

How To Change Python Turtle Direction

How To Change Python Turtle Direction

We saw how to make the turtle move by using the forward() function. If you do not specify otherwise, the turtle starts its journey by pointing to the right, and the turtle can only move in the direction that it is facing. If you want the forward() function to move the turtle in a different direction, then you first have to specify the direction the turtle should be facing.…
