There is no way for a vortex to be made in a shape other than a circle. A smoke heart cannot be done. Sorry those of you that claim to have done it but that was just a result of airflow in the room and an unstable vortex that was collapsing in a way you recognized as a heart.
I don't think anyone is claiming they blew a smoke heart, i'm fairly certain they're saying they modified pre-formed smoke rings that have already been expelled by their food receptors into that of a heart shape. This is somewhat similar to the aforementioned environmental anomalies that you say caused the shape, only user-controlled.
