I'm struggling to draw a set of a certain number of curved lines springing off a point.
The picture below shows more or less what I'm trying to do (except the outer circle):
Is there an obvious way to obtain this in Inkscape?
I didn't see the Inkscape tag, when I posted my first answer. My first answer was the quick, easy way I would have done it, admittedly not the best. This is the more accurate way that I would create that shape (there may be a better one?). This was done in Illustrator, but I would imagine that the same technique can be applied to Inkscape.
I first created a circle
Then I deleted one of the 4 anchor points, giving me an arc
I then duplicated and rotated the arc, in this case by 72o, to achieve a twisted star of lines
