"Monty, you threw me into the arms of my greatest love - someone who I never would have had the privilege of loving and being loved by without your tenacious intervention on more than one occasion. I love you, I miss you, and I will never stop striving to make you proud. Rest easy, friend, we've got a lot of DDR to play someday" Meg Turney

:'( As the song goes, 'Beware that the light is fading. Beware as the dark returns. This worlds unforgiving, even brilliant lights will cease to burn.' As an up-and-coming writer, I see you, an artist, and I'm reminded how its up to all of us; everyone who has something creative to offer, to honor his light, by making sure that we shine our own.

Your work is amazing...  I can see the effort put into it, and the feeling it entails.

Exceptionally done, I'm certain Monty would be proud of it and thankful.
DunkleMaterie Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2015
Maybe its superstitious but I believe that if you are "too good" and bright for the current world you live into, you simply die in some way.
Because the world doesnt want you to be something brilliant and a center of Joy and Passion.
The world wants darkness, boredom and apathy or something like this.

Still RBWY forever and thx Monty for existing.

davionpuryear Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2015
Honestly i loved his work and i only consider myself a casual fan at best but hearing he died was a kick in the balls especially since i was having a pret good day till i heard that, and my balls have not recovered, crass analogy aside i'm going to miss him.

Gray Cast & Crew

The Future of RWBY
Hello everyone-

Given the excitement and questions that came out of PAX East over the weekend (sorry we couldn't be there!), maybe now would be a good time to talk briefly about the future of RWBY's production.

RWBY Volume 3 will indeed premiere this year. While the animation crew is hard at work on RvB13, RWBY is returning to the early stages of pre-production. Kerry and Miles are getting ready to dive into the scripts, and I'm talking to the guys about pre-viz. Meanwhile, Shane's already choreographing a new fight sequence (Argh - want to tease this matchup so much! Let's just say Yang intends to teach someone a well-deserved lesson), and our tenacious tech team is getting the production pipeline ready.

For those wondering, Monty was heavily involved in shaping the future of the world of Remnant. His story ideas will live on, and you will also be able to see some of the animation he'd begun working on for Volume 3. For some time, the team has known the direction in which the next volumes will be headed, and Rooster Teeth is committed to bringing these tales to you.

So, while it's too early to go into any further detail, be assured that the adventures of Ruby Rose and her friends will continue as planned. 'Til then, please keep sharing your writing, art and photos. They mean so much, now more than ever. They keep us going, and we love seeing them as much as we love sharing our stories with you.

Warm regards,
Gray, Kerry, and Miles

P.S. We also hear that, as we speak, AH is putting the finishing touches on "Let's Build: The Musical Motion Picture." Ask Jack about it!

This physically pains me. But I absolutely love it. We'll miss you Monty.
ShadowHawk137 Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
oh my god, Monty is DEAD? Holy crap! I...I didn't know...dangit...everyone I know and love keeps dying...oh well. At least he didn't suffer too much, from what we can tell. The lingering deaths are always the most painful for everyone involved. R.I.P. Monty, may your soul pass peacefully into the void.

Such a shame  :I  but awesome work! lol
joker105 Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2015
He's not dead because, he got to be what very few people can be immortal. He got that and stuff like what he did and people who still talk about him and, keep going doing stuff like this moving on. That's how you know damn straight his still alive.
Obhan Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2015   Digital Artist
The man will be missed, rest in peace Monty.

As an aside, great tribute dude, it's a very moving image.
stephbadbadger Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2015
it's almost hard to believe that he's gone, when i heard that monty passed away i seriously thought it was a horrible joke since the news is from the internet and almost everything on it is not real. but now that it is, we'll never forget him for what he has done and what he has left behind for us.
he's in a place where no tear is shed :')
