I want to draw something like this:

Indentity map

But when I use the bezier curves and straight lines tool, I'm getting lines that are not round enough:

(And if I use several points, it's still ugly.) How can I make the arrows as in that picture?

Or, instead of using the regular bezier path option, you can use the spiro path option. Curves created with the spiro option are often pretty. I have it on by default. :-) [Although, personally, I'd create my own arrowheads from small triangles (instead of ending markers) so I can have full control of arrow position and angle.] [enter image description here]1


The circle tool has 3 options: Full circle, piece of cake or arc. Use arc and then switch to node-view, and deform it a little, to make it look more sketchy. The arrow is in the color dialog, pattern of contour, if I translate correctly.
