Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
There is no question that ToolKitten is a talented artist - it's evident by looking at her expansive and impressive gallery of work, most notably her comic work for Marvel, DC, and Zenoscope. ToolKitten's gallery on DeviantArt showcases her artistic growth and process but what is most special is that she took this time to also encourage and improve others. This practice of give and take is integral to the core of DeviantArt and ToolKitten continues to demonstrate that, after 14 years, and through all her success, she's still a deviant at heart. It is because of this that we are honored to award Deviousness for February 2018 to ToolKitten!
-awarded February 2018

Hello, Tool Kitten. I would like to thank you for the advice you have given me on this artwork of mine - 9 years ago. Even though I shunned your advice and I was afraid of change, I steadily and subconsciously implemented the advices you've gave me as time went on.
Unfortunately I am now abandoning Deviantart for good, will be uploading on a different site now, but I wanted to drop by and tell you how grateful I am that you took the time to comment. Even if it wasn't what I wanted to hear, at the time, it was most certainly what I NEEDED to hear - even my twin sister thinks so. 

Thank you :iconpinklilyplz:

P.S. I am having the oddest deja vu now. Like I did this before... thanking you for your advice I mean

I have no idea how to you like to be addressed so I will go with the straight forward "hello".

I have a question for you and that is, do you have any interest in doing commission coloring work, and if so how much would you charge. If it would make any difference I would be happy to send you the line art of the picture I would like your coloring take on so you see it, decide you level of interest, and laugh at it all you wish, or say yes, or something in between.
If you have any interest in such a thing please let me know whenever you get a chance. If not, then you are still awesome in my book.
If I could ask something of you, I would love to know if there is a listing online somewhere of what you like to listen to when you work?
I am constantly putting together playlists to listen to while I am coloring and drawing, and I am really curious what you like to listen to while you work.
If you take a few seconds to look at this, then thanks for your time.

I'm not from those mountains, but great heights, I am not from the Sea, but the Depths are my homelands, The medium of it are the hearts of all which I encompass, as each may find their way through its light that I bring, and no tears but Tiers, one, and the Top Shelf is all we have.
