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

One Last Message About the ProjectSo guys, this is it. My mysterious project to end all projects premieres tomorrow.One Last Message About the Project9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Honestly, this project was stressful, life consuming on a number of levels, and it’s been hard to keep motivated for all of the production (a total of about 10 months due to some development hell), but I’m very pleased with the quality of the animation, which frankly, turned out fantastic, and of course, the message of the darn thing.
And that message? Well, you’ll have to wait and see for that!
Frankly, it's a bit political in terms of what I was going for, and my notion to bring up a topic that the fandom has long since put behind itself, at least from what I can tell.
But this isn’t about the politics. This project is about making it up to some people (one person in particular) for metaphorically shooting themselves in the foot. If you can guess what that issue is by a mixture of this writing plus the hints in the animation previews, props to you.
At the end of the day, this is
Project Zomboid ThoughtsWHY HAS NO ONE COME UP WITH THIS BEFORE!?Project Zomboid Thoughts1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Project Zomboid is essentially The Sims… in a zombie apocalypse. The game is amazing, and it’s only in alpha right now. Like Minecraft before it though, it’s well worth the price of entry. So, how does it work exactly? The game starts you in a random house in Murdrough, Kentucky (I’d recommend starting here; more suburban) or West Point Kentucy (more urban; difficult to survive), sometime in late July. A zombie apocalypse seems to have happened while you were sleeping and you’ve got to survive with whatever you have. In the meantime you need to sate your needs like food, sleep, and water. So you’ll have to scavenge the neighborhood to get yourself new supplies, or else you’ll starve to death. But more than likely, the zombies will get you because this is one of those games where you will die. No matter how well you do, they will get you eventually. So, it’s kind o

Before anything, just allow me to tell just how much I have adored and cherished the love, kindness, support and friendship I have gained from all of you who cared to view what I'd drawn.
Doing these silly (And usually illogical/disturbing) comic-strips and images has literally been one of the highlights in my life, as cheesy and cliché as that may sound, I swear, it's absolutely true. Ever since way back when I started with my couple of watchers right up to this moment with over 19'000 watchers, breaking the 1'000'000 pageview milestone and having amassed over 10'000'000 hits, logging into this account and seeing many, many supportive remarks and friendly comments, watching the favourites rise steadfastly on each deviation, seeing others willing to try improve their own, or return, to drawing (Despite the fact that I still do not wish to be titled as a
The Wrong ways of being a Muslim Okay gaiz. Disclaimer. I love my religion. You guys know that. I go on rants about the awesomeness of Islam. BUT that does not mean that there aren't things about religion and religiousness that just really REALLY get on my nerves and here they are:The Wrong ways of being a Muslim2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's always something or the other I find very annoying about all religious people. Don't get me wrong, Islam is well and good I suppose. It's just that, the way it is practiced makes it all appear so staggeringly inane sometimes. Wherever I go in life, however many years pass, some 'good' Muslim or the other will come along and make me wish to skewer and serve them as kebabs for iftari.
My chief grievance, even more so than the murder-condoning loonies that grace the television screens and classrooms of good old Pakistan, is the megalomaniacs that think THEY. ARE. BETTER. THAN ANYONE ELSE. Surely you've come across them. Their smug "holier-than-thou" faces are impossible to erase from memory. If you've
First Impressions - Somepony to Watch Over MeDisclaimer: These are my first impressions and may not reflect my overall opinions towards the episode.First Impressions - Somepony to Watch Over Me1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I... I didn't like this one. There were things that I did like, like the chimera, but as an overall product I really didn't like it. The problem, as you've might have guessed, comes down to Applejack. Even if we count her behavior in Apple Family Reunion, this paranoia of hers was way too far out of character. It became really frustrating really quickly. I kinda think that that was the point, but you can't frustrate the audience as well when doing it. By the time that Applebloom had already escaped Applejack the episode had already really lost me. Not to mention that the moral was... confused. Applejack learned that she shouldn't be paranoid about Applebloom after saving her from nearly getting eaten by a hydra. Whether she saved the pies or not, that's pretty much what happened. How could this be fixed? Well, to curb down on Applejack's out of nowhere paranoia Applebloom coul
Animated Atrocities #46: Cars 2This was one of the hardest videos that I ever made, not because of the subject matter but because of my annoying outdated technology. Oh yeah, and copyright problems. Again. Since Disney has been around since forever I'm going to assume that they've adapted to copyright laws and fair use. They clearly know the law, I mean they're the ones pushing for longer times before something jumps into the public domain. I'm taking tomorrow off and using the rest of the week for catching up on the MLP episodes that I missed. Also, the audio problem can't be helped.

O-O (Updated with a picture)Story time!O-O (Updated with a picture)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Alllllllrighty everyone! Time for a story! But first a story to preface the story.
Many moons ago, whilst browsing the blog section of a website I was a journalist for, I had stumbled upon an entree from a internet acquaintance regarding his copy of Halo 4, and how Amazon (or competing company--I don't remember who he had bought it through) had yet to deliver it to him. One or two weeks after the initial launch of the game, he was understandably quite frustrated with the company. Where was his copy? Why hadn't they delivered it yet? Why was Master Chief left to float around the galaxy in the butt piece of Forward Unto Dawn? These answers and more were left dangling in a passing breeze due to the lack of coordination of one company. Being a Halo connoisseur myself, I understood his pain. I am a pretty big fan of the series (I somehow even managed to get an unprovoked happy birthday from Halo's multiplayer announcer o
My thoughts on the MLP Season 3 finale...First of all, I would like to say congrats to Daniel Ingram for doing a swell job making a musical episode. I don't think I've ever seen this many songs in such a short amount of TV before, and the sheer variety of tunes was quite a treat for the ears. I also loved all the continuity callbacks, like Pinkamena, Spike's 7 hour long bubble bath, etc. The episode was definitely full of emotion, and it definitely affected me in a big way.My thoughts on the MLP Season 3 finale...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Having said that, not all the emotion I felt was good. The heartwarmingness of seeing Twilight bring her friends back to their real destinies quickly gave way to dread when I saw her teleported to an ethereal plane with Princess Celestia who congratulates her, and I instantly started having flashbacks of the final episode of Neon Genesis Evangelion. What followed kind of left me feeling empty, and even though I knew which emotional buttons the episode was supposed to be pushing, its attempts fell flat on me, and left me instead feeling worried.

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.

The REAL reason I hardly ever uploadOn top of being lazy and still looking for a job, I also realized that over the last year or so I have actually hated the shit out of drawing.The REAL reason I hardly ever upload4 months ago in Personal More Like This
It took me a surprisingly long time to figure this out!!
It kinda hit me when I realized that I would look for any excuse not to draw, how I would sometimes literally work on something for a few minutes a day and then go and play video games. It doesn't help that I'm obsessive compulsive, and often check over the same thing over and over again. I also save. MILLIONS OF TIMES. It's a serious problem, even back when I was like 8 I would save my pokemon file a crap load of times before turning it off.
Recently, I have been thinking about how important it is that you have fun while drawing. Lots of people have probably been through this, right? I will change my attitude towards drawing, and I'll try to have more fun and not get caught up in excessive planning. If you're having trouble drawing, then have a long hard think about who you're
Devious Journal EntryOkay, I just got home from school, and let me sayDevious Journal Entry2 years ago in Personal More Like This
today was boring
but, the bus ride home TOTALLY made up for that.
You see, on our way home, me and my sister always sit together on the bus. As usual, I was listening to my music with headphones in (Brony music of course xb).
My sister suddenly starts jabbing me in the arm, wanting me to listen to her, so I remove one of my earbuds
She says to me: "Can't you hear that? it's Ponies!" I'm just confused cause I still have music playing in my other ear. She tells me to listen so I take out my earphones and listen reaaally hard...
What do I hear? Nothing other than a bunch of screaming kids e_e
But when I listen harder, I hear Alex S.'s MLP intro Glitch remix! One of my favourite MLP remixes ever <3

Well, here are a collection of codes and tips you can use in your journal, to make it look as pretty as many other journals around deviantART.
How to add images to your journal
< img src="source URL" alt="Image Description" />
remember to remove the spaces in the code when you're using it
The source URL is the URL of the picture you want to include, and the image description will be shown if the image, for some reason, cannot be loaded. Please also don't forget the trailing />. If you forget it, problems like your text not being properly aligned might occur.

Pony Recap: Princess Twilight Sparkle (Part 1)Well pony fans, the moment you all have been waiting for has arrived. Finally, after all this waiting, we have been graced with Season 4, and the premiere was anything but disappointing.Pony Recap: Princess Twilight Sparkle (Part 1)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Many bronies have expressed doubt about how well the show would fare switching hands from Lauren Faust to Meghan McCarthy. If this episode is any indicator, McCarthy is not only a viable replacement for Faust, but someone who vastly surpasses her.
These two episodes provide so much in fleshing out the history and mythology of Equestria, at least in terms of the Elements of Harmony. We still don’t know much about the princesses or Discord or even other relevant characters like Sombra (Seriously, his back story really needs work!), but something tells me that future episodes this season will do just that. (Discord even gets his own song!)
We also saw some more fleshing out of Twilight’s character, especially with her new form, her new role, and the challenges that come with them. Some things
