Try this one...

# draw a heart using equation
import canvas, sys, random
from console import clear
from datetime import datetime
from math import sin, cos, pi

w = h = 600 # canvas size
detail = random.random() * 100 # larger is slower
# almost perfect : 12.485 75.05 125.3
# half left : 12.525
# half right : 12.605
scale = 15 # larger is bigger
origin = w/2 # plot origin on canvas

def draw_heart(outline = False):
first = True
for t in xrange(int(2*pi * detail)):
t = t * detail
# heart equation
x = 16*(sin(t) ** 3)
y = 13*cos(t) - 5*cos(2*t) - 2*cos(3*t) - cos(4*t)
# scale result
x = origin + x * scale
y = origin + y * scale + scale*2
# hide first line
if first:
canvas.move_to(x, y)
first = False
else:
# set color
canvas.set_fill_color(1,0.5,0.5)
canvas.set_stroke_color(0.5,0,0)
canvas.set_line_width(detail/2)
# draw heart
if outline:
canvas.draw_path()
else:
canvas.close_path()
canvas.fill_path()

clear()
print 'Calculating... d =',detail
start = datetime.now()
canvas.set_size(w,h)
canvas.draw_rect(0,0, w,h)
#canvas.draw_line(0,h/2,w,h/2)
#canvas.draw_line(w/2,0,w/2,h)
draw_heart(True) # outlined
draw_heart() # filled
stop = datetime.now()
print(stop-start)

Updated with comment and constant separation. Another update, add drawing timer. Another update, add fill mode via function argument. Another update, pick detail value randomly, creating beautiful images out of the equation.

Awesome bee... Just one more nagging question: https://github.com/cclauss/Pythonista_canvas

I couldn't find a floodfill function to fill an arbitrary area with a specified color. If you want to get a smooth edge of the heart, try to play with the detail constant. I found 62.66 seems to be smooth enough. I also found 12.66, 25, 37.66, etc seem to be smooth as well. Try to find other values.

update: Well, fill_path() does fill the inner part. The problem is how to get smooth edges. So, "correct" detail value seems the only answer. At least with this code. Try my updated code above.

Pick detail value randomly, you'll get beautiful images out of the equation. Check out the latest update.
