Shield code on Apple Bloom's page; to get left-facing (head-tail) version swap bf5d93 and f5415f there instead of flipping the cutie mark

I orient all my cutie marks to be correct if the pony is facing right, rather than left as is usually done in the show, barring a few historical exceptions listed out here. At first I thought the quaver was reversed between Sweetie Belle's flanks, but when this was uploaded to Derpibooru it was pointed out otherwise: the quaver stays in its natural orientation regardless of side (the first example of what I call a Paraguayan cutie mark, different between the left and right sides like Paraguay's flag). Accordingly, the procedure for obtaining the left-oriented version is explained above.

This is the only one of my three CMC cutie mark vectors that uses a coordinate with more than one decimal place (in bold above), because the right edge of the quaver's beam has a smooth node at its bottom and is not perfectly vertical – it goes left 0.1 pixels and down 5.7 pixels, which made me think of the One57 skyscraper in New York City.
