<aside> 📢 Plasma membrane are bilayers of lipids that are key components of our cells. They are also can be difficult to draw by hand. But with some tools, we can create a lipid bilayer in 4 steps.
One as part of creating the phospholipid head, we first need to draw a circle. Inkscape has many pre-made shapes such as circles, squares, and stars. There are three components in Inkscape to focus on: shapes/objects, paths and strokes.
Now that we have our circular tails, we need to some swirly tails. We can use the freehand draw tool (✏️). But in order to make the line smoother, we are going to make a few modifications.
This will apply a smoothing algorithm to the line we create with this tool such that the squiggly lines we create do not look jagged.
Now that we have our circle and squiggly lines, we need to turn these into paths. T
