Waggy tail icon cheetah - free template by manicsfan Waggy tail icon cheetah - free template by manicsfan
Also, in honour of International Cheetah Day, here's the template that I used to make my waggy tail cheetah icon. Spots not included! I left the spots off to make it easier for people to colour. You can reference my own cheetah icon manicsfan.deviantart.com/art/C… for where to put the spots, or just add your own as you please.

You can:

Use this template to make your own waggy tail icons for yourself or other.

Use this template to make icons and sell icons for points.

Please don't:

Claim the original template as your own. Crediting me when you use it is appreciated, but not necessary, just please don't take credit for the base yourself.

Sell the original template or the rights to it.


I've added a rough guide on how to animate this. It's not the exact method I use, but it's an easy way to get a good flowing animation with a small file size.

To use this template:

1. Colour in the eight frames, and save each frame individually as gif files.

2. Save the frames as follows: Top row as frame 1, 2, 3, and 4, and bottom row as frame 5, 6, 7 and 8.

How to animate:

Frames order: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 1, 7, 8, 7, 1, 6, 5, 6, 1, 7, 8, 7.

Frames time: Different animator programmes might have different time allowances, but basically all the frames should be the same length in time (I use 0.1 sec) except for the second, third, fourth and fifth frame which should be half the time (0.05 for me).

If you're still having problems feel free to ask me about it.

~ Ace.

I made mine <--- see icon

However...how would you get different frames to different speeds? I don't know any online GIF Makers that do this...

Fixed: I had put the frames in the wrong order. I'm retarded XD

Hey, I haven't uploaded it to DA yet, but here's a template of the cheetah with spots included, and a tiger with the stripes: i.imgur.com/vpY2wtX.gif

The markings are coloured in pink to help people differentiate between the outline and the spots/stripes. So you can just colour the markings in whatever colour you want just like the rest of the character.

Yeah it took a long time to get it right especially with the background X.x
I might start taking icon point commissions for these in the future so I'll let
you know if that happens as for now I'm busy x3
I'm so appalled at the creator's generosity though,being able to use these
for point commissions,~oh thank you so much Manicsfan!
