I'm just copying & pasting my last answer Wayne, hopefully you won't
ignore it again.

Tkinter is not really responsible for the drawing, it just passes the
responsibility to tk. The standard tk canvas is not going to give you
pretty results, but there is an option if you want to continue using
tk for this. Last time I checked you could use the tkpath extension
(can be found at http://tclbitprint.sourceforge.net/), and maybe there
are other extensions to do the same.
