"Lady Luck" Geocoin - Wanna get lucky?

Recommended Posts

Hi folks..

 

Just a post to share the art for a coin I designed thats coming up VERY soon!

 

While its a little different than my usual style, and a slightly different 'genre' than I normally do, I wanted to do something a little fun and playful, that was a little retro and classy at the same time.

 

I call her "Lady Luck" - and I think shes a beaut! Shes done in a 'Pinup girl' style.

Who doesn't need a little luck on their side while caching? As you can see, shes ready for anything with her camo, GPS and boots! (Shes already found the cache - she just makes it look easy.)

 

The coin will be in translucent imitation hard enamels - with levels under the enamel to detail her hair.

Her skintone will be the only regular PMS color imitation hard enamel, and the metals planned are polished gold, and black nickel.

 

The art is back, and shes headed off to mint!

 

She will be available in 3 regular editions, and one VERY limited edition.

(Purple and black is the LE) But - there should be a 'Lady Luck' to suit anyone! :unsure:

 

Only one back is pictured in the above art. (Haircolor will match the front on each coin.)

 

The coin is 1.75" and is trackable with its own icons.

She will be available soon at our own webstore - I will post the link when the coins are ready to go in the store.

 

A BIG thanks to Castle Man for minting this coin!

I think shes going to be a lot of fun.

<intolerable quickly covers mightyzinn's eyes!>

 

Oh! No worries - shes a little naughty but awfully nice! :unsure:

 

:-)

 

This will undoubtedly be the next coin he *really* wants...

 

And my wife might get all sorts of new ideas as to why I want to go caching everyday!

 

Seriously though, nice coin!

:unsure:Sweet. Yet another fantastic design. I knew I liked the shaped coins. (These have quite a nice shape btw.) Naughty or nice... this smooth design is bound to be a hit. :o

 

Oh, most definately. ;)

This is one very nice lookin coin. This may just be the first one that I've seen that I have to order one of each color. Well, ok, I will at least be ordering 2 coins forsure. One for myself and one for a good caching friend of mine. Again, very nice, I really like the pin-up design with the ammo box. :o;):unsure:

A MOST attractive coin. Might want to consider shipping them in a silk pouch as they're liable to melt any other carrier. :unsure:

Thanks for all the positive responses - these will look so much more amazing in person with the translucent enamels, textures, etc!

 

We are 'safely' estimating a November 8th release date on these!

Save me a purple one!

 

Oops...I guess I didn't realize the Purple was LE. I'll take a redhead, then.

Very Nice!

 

You should do a whole series of these! :blink:

 

Reminds me of some of the pin-up art of Alberto Vargas.

Strangely enough, I got interested in his work when I found out he painted the album cover, Candy-0, for The Cars! :D

 

Hot Chics & Rock & Roll! Who'd guessed!! :blink:

 

Definately put me down for a set!

 

(How does one get on the "special" list to get a Black & Purple?)

 

D-man :D

Hot coins ;)

 

Will have to be taking a good hard look at them to work out which ones I should get.

That's one mighty big ammo can!

 

I know that I've said I can't afford many new coins these days, but heck --- maybe I'll get lucky and be able to snag one or four of these. ;)

 

I'm with gridlox -- how do we get onto the LE list? Just have to be quick on the draw at the shopping page when they go live?

Usually means "artist's edition", specially made for the designer to do as they please.

So...who would I have to butter up to get one of the AE's? :)

That would be me. :)

 

I have started spreading the butter so watch out, would hate to have you go sliding around... :)

 

Man this design makes me want to change my caching handle. :)

 

I actually put all the ladies from a calendar of this style on the walls of my dads apartment he has on my property in Texas. He sure gets a lot of ribbing when friends have to relieve themselves, somtimes 3-4 times per visit LOL :)

 

Love this design...

Well.. you have an 'in' by association if nothing else.. it helps if one is closely associated with my favorite artist. :)

 

I LOVE this style of art - and, frankly, those curvy ladies of the 40's were SO much more appealing than the stick figures they call 'bombshells' today.

 

Thanks for all the kind words!

Just what I need, more great looking coins to add to my list.

 

I had heard about these but had been away from the forum for a while so didn't see the photos until now. I must say, they're better looking than I was told (and I'm sure they look even better in person).

I would also like a set of these coins including the purple one if possible. Purple is my fav color and really wanted her :(
