These two pictures are of ONE coin! One side is gold-colored, featuring Celestia, and the other side is silver-colored featuring Luna.
The pictures above are from the first run.
Here's a VIDEO for proof of the two sides!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HB9HOsXirs
(He pronounces my name, wrong, but that's understandable.)
Run 2 is featured below. The difference is the edge text. In the first run, there's no side text.
These are gorgeous! How big are they?/What are they made of?
The coin is 2 inches in diameter, and approximately 3.5mm thick. It's a nice and heavy 2.2 oz brass coin plated on one side with nickel and (A finite amount of) 14kt gold on the other.
Why is Luna's side nickel and not actual silver?
Because actual silver is only available in antique finish. It was either have both sides be shiny, or both sides be made of precious metal with antique finish. The shiny
Pony Couples: Fluttershy/Big MacintoshSince this is Februarythe month of Valentine's DayI'd thought I do something special by sharing my favorite My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic shippings. For those of you who aren't internet-savvy, a "shipping" is a fan coupling of two characters within a mediumin this case, My Little Pony.Pony Couples: Fluttershy/Big Macintosh3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unfortunately, when it comes to ponies, most of the shippings tend to be "yuri" (or lesbian)which isn't all too unexpected in a show with mostly female characters. Nothing against homosexuals here, I just don't see any of the ponies as lesbians (not even Rainbow Dash). So yeah: most of my favorite shippings will be heterosexual (what few actually exist in the fandom).
And I'm starting with my all-time favorite: Fluttershy/Big Macintosh (FlutterMac). These two were meant for each other. One's a shy girl; the other, a man of few words. And both are kind, gentle souls. They complement each other so well, which is why they're probably one of the most popular po

When the end... of pony comesWhat will you do?When the end... of pony comes3 years ago in Personal More Like This
When our beloved series hits the point of overuse, when it seems hasbro is just... Milking it
When the love and joy is no longer possible to be obtained, when it...
Becomes just another stupid show that makes you think.
"Remember back when it was good?"
What will you do, will you keep your title as a brony(Or whatever variation of it you prefer) or will you act as if you never were part of the shows history.
Will you proudly wear the images you drew, share the stories you made, and promote the games you played.
Or be bigoted to the antiquated and lost views times has played repeatedly.
When it's all said and done, will you still care... Who's best pony?
My two cents on Las Pegasus Unicon.Everyone seems to be in agreement that they want to know more about what went wrong at LPU- so I'm going to offer up some of what I've seen/heard. In many cases, I'm may omit names- so if I say "a VA" or "a musician", just please respect that I want to pass on observations, but also respect those affected persons.My two cents on Las Pegasus Unicon.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before I get into the details, I've mentioned before that I'm not a fan of Vegas, but I want to get something off my chest about the choice of location.
Las Vegas is not a children-friendly venue. It's Casinos and Strip Clubs and Alcohol and Prostitutes and Clouds of Cancerous Choking Cigarette Smoke EVERYWHERE!!! My Little Pony is a show for children that became so much more- it became something we all love and enjoy- but the cons are supposed to bring everyone together, and this was not a venue for the demographic that mattered the most. Las Vegas is a playground for adults.
You might be wondering why I'm ranting about this... and here it is: &
CTENO PANTIES NOW ON SALE!!!!Available at cafepress.com/slugbox for 13.99!CTENO PANTIES NOW ON SALE!!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I decided to just go ahead with the one design I have! Why wait? They are Ladies' Boy Brief panties. Cteno is printed on the butt! They're available in three colors, and come in four sizes. There's a size chart on the site!
I'm also not taking a cut on these, and offering them as cheap as possible, with no markup or profit! I think having Cteno on cute girl butts will be payment enough. It's good advertising too!
Guys can buy them too, I guess. I won't judge what you think is comfortable! When I have time, I'll have a design for boxers too, but I don't think that's a reason to delay the panties any longer!
So get at 'em!!
How to get attention on deviantArtThis is probably the one question that every artist on deviantArt asks: how can I be popular? How can I make the front page?How to get attention on deviantArt6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
There are many different answers to this. I've given examples of my photos along with each point to explain.
-Be Dedicated. In order to be popular, you need to have a dedication to photography, drawing, writing, etc. Writing is exceptionally difficult to make the front page with, because many people are on here just for photography and fan art, not writings. For photography, you need to upload a lot and ask a lot of questions. Just give it a shot. It's okay to mimic your favorite artists, just not too thoroughly. Mimicking helps you see how to get better, and what makes a good photo. You can also think about sending notes to your favorite photographers. Trust me, when I first did, I was extremely intimidated, and thought they wouldn't have enough time to answer me. But most people on here are immensely understanding and nice to your situation, becau

Derpy is the Everypony We NeedAll the anti-ableism people that support censoring Derpy Hooves are the real ableists. They are upset that someone dares to be not normal in a cartoon for children because it might offend the special needs children. So who's being the real ableist here? Could it be that you are the person that's offended because you feel guilt? And that you're projecting your own feelings onto others?Derpy is the Everypony We Need3 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Good news and bad news. Derpy got the voice we should have had to begin with. The bad, uncrossed eyes and no mention of her name in the episode. Best news: there's now fan versions of the episode that keep the original Rainbowdash conversation and animations, but keeps the new voice. Also the dvd version of the episode is the origi
aGoGO and Cteno Dakis going on sale this week!PROBABLY ON FEBRUARY 1st!!aGoGO and Cteno Dakis going on sale this week!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Both Cteno AND the aGoGo sisters will be available for purchase, via my ebay store, for a one week period! After which orders will close for another month or so! Having them made will take around 20-30 days, so you're patience is appreciated! I cannot afford (yet) to order them in bulk and have them on hand, but eventually I will be able to do that!
Each double sided 5ft tall daki is $185. So, as I've said before, these are not casual purchases!! But for those of you who want them, they will be available!
The best way to assess the quality of these is to ask people who already have the Cteno daki! I think everyone loved them!!
WOO! STAY TUNED!!

Plans going forward for rhymes and 100 watchersYou all have been supportive and great,Plans going forward for rhymes and 100 watchers2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Seemingly pleased with all I create.
From here on out I'll be doing two eps a week,
At least that's what I plan as we speak.
One old episode balanced out with one new,
and until Season 3 ends that I will continue.
So, 100 watchers is coming up rather soon,
and during the Christmas season it's a time opportune.
And though I've not hit that number yet,
I've got something planned, don't you all fret.
Thank you all for your time and attentions,
Have yourselves a great time with your holiday conventions!

Get your Art some Attention on deviantARTFive basic tips to get your Art some Attention, Appreciation & Audience on deviantARTGet your Art some Attention on deviantART4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Here's some tips that may not get you a consistent spot on the front page right away, but that will definitely help getting some watchers and friends, whether you already have some, or not.
First, let me make clear that this is only about 'good' attention – if you just want, say, a certain pageview count, there are probably better ways. This article is for those who would like some people to take them serious as an artist and to actively watch them.
Also note that you needn't follow all of the tips below, but it's recommendable to follow at least 3 of them. Just one or two will not usually get you very far.
So here we go! :iconeagerpee:

Try to find a balance between quality and quantity. Personally I think it's best to submit one or a couple of dev

WHAT?!I just read IGN's review on Pokemon OR/AS, and guess what they gave them:WHAT?!6 months ago in Personal More Like This
THAT, is B to the fucking S there, THAT'S THE BEST YOU COULD GIVE THIS AWAITED REMAKE IGN!?!?! That's it, I've lost trust in IGN for that, I'm never trusting them again, I'll just play the games myself. Wanna know their main complaint?
TOO MUCH WATER
That's more of a personal complaint rather than a fact, look at the Earth IGN, 3/4 of it is water, don't you think you're being a little ridiculous? Whatever, at least they didn't gripe about the Mega Evolutions since we have yet to find out all of them, hopefully IGN isn't telling the truth...
Anyway, enough ranting, back to waiting. The games have yet to come out so we can prove IGN wrong.
Embroidery Digitizing Program SuggestionsAs you may or may not know I have an embroidery machine now. You can see some of its work in action on Trixie's alicorn amulet. I've been using Stitchera to digitize. It's the only program I'm familiar with and I'm comfortable with it, but it has some major flaws. After December 31st I'll also have to pay $96 a year to keep using it or a whopping $1000 to buy the program if I upgrade from Universal to Liberty. Now if the program didn't have major flaws, I wouldn't mind that and it is quite possible that Liberty gets rid of some of the flaws that Universal has, but I'm not paying $1000 to find out. The one MAJOR issue I have with Stitchera is that it does not save manual edits when you flip a file. So, say, you were digitizing an eye file and had to move a few stitches manually to get them placed right. If you flip the eye those edits go away and you have to redo them entirely! How are you supposed to do that perfectly? You canEmbroidery Digitizing Program Suggestions2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Smoothing, Sanding, & Buffing Polymer ClaySmoothing, Sanding, and Buffing polymer clay is definately something that you don't hear a lot about in the younger polymer clay community, but it certainly does make your pieces look a lot better in the long run. If you smooth, sand, and buff your clay AND add a layer of varnish - watch out, your pieces will look as bright, beautiful and glossy as a piece of delicious candy.Smoothing, Sanding, & Buffing Polymer Clay6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Have you ever noticed that translucent clay really isn't THAT translucent? Well, if you smooth, sand, and buff it - you'll be seeing differently! It really DOES get see-through!
Give these tips a try, and although I can't guarantee that you will get it right the first time, practice makes perfect, and sometimes new techniques take a little getting used to before you find a way that works the best for you.
Smoothing your clay is what you do to your clay before you bake it. Running your fingers along the surface and smoothing out bumps and impurities can work wonders on a piece and give it a ve

This is why the Doctor is RealThis is something that actually happened some time back, but I didn't really write it down or anything. Lately though, I was thinking about it, and I wanted to share it with my friends here.This is why the Doctor is Real2 years ago in Personal More Like This
To give a little background, everyone in my family watches (and loves) Doctor Who. I have a very young sister who has only gotten to see a handful of episodes of the new series because the rest would scare her, but she still was desperate to see more of the Doctor, so we started watching the classic episodes together. She's our little Whovian. She loves all the Doctors, especially Eleven and Four, and she said Sarah Jane is her hero because 'she must be, like, the bravest person EVER and I want to be brave like her.'
I guess that's why I wasn't sure what to tell her when one day she walked up to me, a serious expression on her little face, and asked 'Sarah, is the Doctor real?'
I was stunned. I thought she understood it was just a show. She's never even believed
Because laughter is always the best cureI must confess, I started this week in a bit of a foul mood. My Tumblr Dashboard, my Twitter homepage, even my personal email were overflowing with "OMG! HAVE YOU SEEN THE LYRA SEX TOY! MY LITTLE PONY IS RUINED FOREVER!!!!" messages. All of them complete with photographic evidence. Everywhere I turned, from Reddit to Ponibooru was like the ruined battlefield of a civil war reenactment staged by green pony butts. And you know what? The first, let's say, dozen times I saw it, I said to myself "Self, that's the end. It was a fun ride, but it's time to nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure." Then I realized I was talking to myself again, and decided to just sit back, relax, and avoid the plot that devours nations.Because laughter is always the best cure3 years ago in Personal More Like This
