# Node below icon in tikz

I have

\def\man#1;{%
\begin{scope}[shift={#1}]
\fill [rounded corners=1.5] (0,0.4) -- (0,0.8) -- (0.4,0.8) -- (0.4,0.4) --
(0.325,0.4) -- (0.325,0.7) -- (0.3,0.7) -- (0.3,0) -- (0.225,0) --
(0.225,0.4) -- (0.175,0.4) -- (0.175,0) -- (0.1,0) -- (0.1,0.7) --
(0.075,0.7) -- (0.075,0.4) -- cycle;
\fill (0.2,0.9) circle (0.1);
\end{scope}}
\draw [thick,opacity=0.05] (#1) circle (#2);
}


from which I can draw a symbol of a man at (x,y)=(0,2) with

\man(0,2);


but I also want some text just below the man.

I have tried

\man(0,2) node [below] {my text};


but it doesn't produce any text.

• You should take a look at pic in TikZ. – Manuel Jun 10 '15 at 13:56

As Manuel suggested, you can draw the man with a pic and later on place text nodes around it.

\documentclass[border=2mm]{standalone}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{positioning}
\begin{document}

\tikzset{
man/.pic={%
\fill [rounded corners=1.5] (0,0.4) -- (0,0.8) -- (0.4,0.8) -- (0.4,0.4) --
(0.325,0.4) -- (0.325,0.7) -- (0.3,0.7) -- (0.3,0) -- (0.225,0) --
(0.225,0.4) -- (0.175,0.4) -- (0.175,0) -- (0.1,0) -- (0.1,0.7) --
(0.075,0.7) -- (0.075,0.4) -- cycle;
\fill (0.2,0.9) circle (0.1);
\coordinate (-foot) at (0.2,0);
}
%    \draw [thick,opacity=0.05] (#1) circle (#2);
}

\begin{tikzpicture}
\pic[red] at (0,2) (myman) {man};
\node[below=1mm of myman-foot] {Some text};
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}


You can find some other men or women in I am trying to draw this picture with latex and Custom "human" shape for tikz

Update: Man with circle

A circular node is drawn around the man. A node and not a circle has been used because this way all text can be placed making reference to any anchor point of this circular node.

\documentclass[border=2mm]{standalone}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{positioning}
\begin{document}

\tikzset{
man/.pic={%
\node[circle, thick, draw, fill, fill opacity=0.3, minimum size=1.3cm, outer sep=0pt] at (0.2,0.5) (-circ) {};
\fill [rounded corners=1.5] (0,0.4) -- (0,0.8) -- (0.4,0.8) -- (0.4,0.4) --
(0.325,0.4) -- (0.325,0.7) -- (0.3,0.7) -- (0.3,0) -- (0.225,0) --
(0.225,0.4) -- (0.175,0.4) -- (0.175,0) -- (0.1,0) -- (0.1,0.7) --
(0.075,0.7) -- (0.075,0.4) -- cycle;
\fill (0.2,0.9) circle (0.1);
\coordinate (-foot) at (0.2,0);
}
}

\begin{tikzpicture}
\pic[red] at (0,2) (myman) {man};
\node[below=1mm of myman-foot] {Some text};

\pic[green] at (2,2) (greenman) {man};
\node[draw, above right=0pt of greenman-circ.60] {Some text};
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}


• Thank you. Can I also draw the circle around the man? – Jamgreen Jun 10 '15 at 22:42
• @Jamgreen I've updated the answer with a circular node around the man. – Ignasi Jun 11 '15 at 7:14
