Waggy tail icon long-haired cat - free template by manicsfan Waggy tail icon long-haired cat - free template by manicsfan
This is the template that I use to make my long-haired cat waggy tail icons. This is a free template for anyone to use to make your own waggy tail icons. Plenty of examples of it in action can be seen in my gallery. If you do use it I'd love you to leave me link in the comments so I can see what you make with it.

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.

Hey, sorry for my delayed reply. Unfortunately I don't have the time to make icons for free any more (I tend to get overrun with requests when I do). Sorry about that.

What are you trying to do when it does that? Have you manages to colour it in, or is it black when you load the picture?

Huh, that's weird. I'm not sure why that's happening, I've not had anyone else say that they've had that problem.

The frame time and order is in the description. You'd need either a programme that can animate things (like Photoshop or Gimp) or find a free online animator.

I use one called Easy Gif Animator. You have to buy it, but there's a free trial download you could use: [link]

There are free online animators around though, I'm just not sure which is the best because I don't use them.

I actually use an old programme that I have on my computer called Easy GIF Animator, which is handy for me because it allows me to have different frames at different speeds, which unfortunately a lot of website animators don't have the option of.

I'm not sure what the best website would be for it. You can download the Easy GIF Animator trial version though, which gives you 20 free uses.
