Team RWBY by Didj Team RWBY by Didj
Don't know what RWBY is? Google it, it's tons of fun and I've become a huge fan. As such, I wanted to show my love of the series with some fan art. But I also wanted to do something a little different with my fan art to make it stand out. So while every fan art I've seen of these characters had them in their default outfits, I decided to draw them in the outfits they wore for only 2 episodes in the second volume. Which really made it difficult to find adequate reference pictures.

This is the picture I would use to answer the question "What is 'RWBY' about?". I only wish that Monty could have lived to see it.

Yeah, after I heard of his death, I started making an art piece in his honor. But I never completed it cuze simply drawing it made me depressed. It's still sitting there unfinished on my hard drive. Ironically, it was to be titled "unfinished".

If you ever feel like finishing it, or shoring up some blemishes and calling it done, the RWBY group would be honored to add it to the memorial.

I really like the little touches on this, Weiss' scar, all the pieces of Ruby's scythe, Yang's flaming hair, Blake's eyes, everything, the little touches make this so good!

I really like the spirit you incorporated into this one. You can really feel the energy just radiating off them! The animation in volume 2 was still a little too stiff get such a strong vibe as there is here.

I was actually wondering if I could use this in a video. I am trying to recruit people for an AMV MEP. It will look something like this imgur.com/BaCfV2N with your credit in the bottom corner and a link in the description. Let me know!

But I love it when I find new RWBY fanart.
Your art is really good.

I just found out about his passing yesterday. I still don't know how to feel about it. It is strange because I hear about celebrity deaths and I'm sad for a moment but then I move on because I did not personally know them. But this one, it's different somehow. It's like there's this emptiness. I've always admired him as an animator and as a creative visionary. Now it just feels that all his potential, all that he could have created, never will be. It makes me think of my own mortality and what unfinished works I would leave behind if I suddenly died.

I like to think he is still looking down on us every 16 hours or so to take a quick break and feel pride in everyone he left behind, before getting back to work so he can show us all the crazy awesome stuff he's made before we got there.

As for your own mortality, use Monty's memory as an example. Do as much as you can in the time you have, because as Monty showed us, while your life may not always been long as you would have liked, it just means you should dedicate the time you do have to as much as you possibly can before whatever brings our end comes. I think that's what Monty would want his legacy to be for his fans anyway.

I feel the need to do something in his memory. But I can't just draw a picture of his characters crying or whatever, a lot of people already did that and I feel it would be an empty gesture. I'm still piecing it together in my head, but it will be something that both celebrates his work and illustrates the idea of an artist abruptly dying and leaving unfinished work behind.

Actually he died on the 30th of January but yes... he's dead.

I apologize if I'm blunt but I already went through the five stages of grief including a lot of self-torment about it so I'm a bit jaded now.

This could've easily been avoided too. He died from a allergic reaction during some medical procedure, and this news isn't sitting well for me either - especially since I'm on the brink of relapsing into a war with depression that I've dealt with back in July last year. I'm not feeling well about all this anymore. R.I.P. Monty.

Leviathantamer Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2015
Oi, don't lose your grip. That part about his death bothers me too, heck his whole death still shakes me a bit despite the jadedness I mentioned earlier. But now's a better time than ever to think positive. Monty lived his life by the Rule of Cool and the result of that was so many things that we love today. He did all this because he believed that the human will was indomitable and thus anything was possible if someone's will was strong enough. Many other fans have used this to steel their selves and start working even harder.

I don't see a reason why neither of us shouldn't use it either.

:iconarandompokemonfan:
Arandompokemonfan Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2015
I'll try.

It's either what I just said or I'm taking his death more personally then I wanted it to. I'm actually crying right now... I never mourned for a person's life until now when I woke up this morning learning Monty Oum passed away the moment I got online, and I never even knew the guy. But I think what's got me sad the most is that he has a legacy that he created two years ago that has turned into a cultural phenomenon, but it's now at a risk of dying with him. If they ever do continue with RWBY up at Rooster Teeth studios, but make it so Volume 3 ends up becoming the last volume of the RWBY franchise, then I'll be happy with that and would help me feel better.

Leviathantamer Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2015
I guess that I could compare to that. I'm a new fan who was really only introduced to RT because of RWBY. So I didn't really know Monty either. But everybody deserves one day of grief at least. Just don't make it last forever.

I personally don't think that they're gonna drop RWBY. They still have two of the three original storyboard writers, Ren may get a new voice actor, and I can only hope for the animation to be at least near the quality of Monty's work. RWBY lost an integral part of itself but I believe that it can still grow.

Only person I could see talking his place as Ren's voice actor is the guy who voices Neptune. Hopefully it won't die or get canceled, but we'll have to wait and see.

Now it's time to say goodbye
To the things we loved
And the innocence of youth
How the time seemed to fly
From our carefree lives
And the solitude and peace we always knew

Sure, go for it. And what is an "Osu? Beatmap"?
Reply
:iconxynthes:
Xynthes Featured By Owner Edited Dec 8, 2014
Osu! is a rhythm game (try to imagine guitar hero, except for pc). As for the beatmap part; all of the tracks for the game are community made, so we place down circles that line up with the over-all beat/melody and we just call these tracks "beatmaps." Any further explanation by me would just be in vain and not do the game justice so I'll just drop this here: osu.ppy.sh/

All-in-all it's a neat little game :3

Last, but not least, thanks!
