Waggy tail icon short-haired cat - free template by manicsfan Waggy tail icon short-haired cat - free template by manicsfan
I got a request for a short-haired cat template. So here it is, both with whiskers and without.

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.

I've not used that site before, but I don't see why it shouldn't work on there.

The directions are in the description. You just need a programme that has an animation option to do it (like Photoshop).
