Waggy tail icon lion (male) - free template by manicsfan Waggy tail icon lion (male) - free template by manicsfan
This is the template that I used to make my male lion waggy tail icon manicsfan.deviantart.com/art/L…. This is a free template for anyone to use to make your own lion waggy tail icons. 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.

I've already made a lioness one here: manicsfan.deviantart.com/art/L…

But if you would still rather edit this one for a different look then sure, feel free to.

By the way, if you want me to upload a template of the female version, like this one, I'd be happy to do that too :)

The basic instructions are in the description. If you need more help than that let me know, I'm considering making a step-by-step tutorial with pictures for people to use.

When I try opening it in Gimp or Photoshop, it's just one big picture. The frames are not separate :/

Yeah, you currently have to cut out the pictures yourself. I'm working on getting zip links of all the frames separately for all my waggy tail icons, but I've been so distracted with other stuff recently that I'd forgotten all about it until now.
