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?

I managed to color it in, but in colors in the whole picture and doesn't stay in the lines.

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.
