    If you own Pangolin Software then there's an animated snake strike graphic in there. Perfect for what you're doing.

    It is copyright though so unfortunately no-one can supply you with it seperately.

    Beg, borrow, don't steal (!) some Pango software and you should have a copy.

    Here's a preview (I added the Pango logo to stop anyone from tracing it, it normally isn't there):

    If you could get a hold of a non copyright snake .bmp then maybe someone would trace it into an ild for you.

    If you're lucky, they might even try to animate it.

    Do an advanced search on Google images for 'snake', select search for line drawings only.

    I did just that and this is the first page that turned up... Hundreds of line drawings of snakes

    http://www.google.co.uk/images?as_q=...w=1276&bih=627

    Then you just need a simple trace program to convert the images to ILDA (or whatever you're using).

    It's worth everyone noting about Googles line drawing advanced search feature. I realise that not all images are copyright free, but hey, if i solves an immediate problem...

    Hope this helps.

    search for animated gifs, open them with the gimp, save each frame individually and you've got an animated ilda frame easy

    "the gimp" is an open source software for picture edition, equivalent to paint shop pro or photoshop but different, which is really complete and professional
