The Trading Post
08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

Busy... sooo busy

working hard as humanly possible on RvB Season 9.

failed at building my girlfriend new costume for AX '11. Also while getting several chemical burns while fast experimenting poly resins

went to AX, played as hard as possible to enjoy the 1/3 times a year I get to see my girlfriend. Enjoyed the fuck out of it.

back at our studio now cramming even harder on RvB season 9

check it out a special preview here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQ3OZf…

episodes 1-4 are all available on our site as well: roosterteeth.com/home.php

too busy, just way too busy.

It was really great to talk to you during AX day 4 as the Dead Fantasy Rinoa. I'm sorry if I seemed super nervous, haha! Meeting you in person and being able to chat for a bit was like meeting a celebrity in my book :] Thank you for taking the time to show me how you made the Fenrir costume! I was really inspired by it.

Anyways, don't overwork yourself! Health comes first :D

Whoa man, sorry to hear about the burns! I've definitely earned some scars at my job, and chemical stuff is the worst! Hope you have a speedy recovery, and get some more time with your lady.

When you've got the time man, take it easy. Those work tempos can grind you down if you're not careful.

You have taken RvB into a whole new level. I like it (What inspires you)?

You know what they say: "It is not easy being god" and since your animations are godly awesome I think you count. If there's one thing Gurren Lagann taught me it's "Kick logic out and do the impossible" which you do with every video you make. Keep up the good work and never stop believing in the you who believes in yourself.

I know your stressed Monty, but know this, its worth it. We love your work, and it was great meeting you. Even if I only was able to say I loved your work, its great to say it in person :)

Season 9 is incredible. I sometimes still can't believe the level of quality you've gotten up to.
o.o I wish they could hire you an assistant or something. I know RoosterTeeth is a relatively small company, but animation is so much work.

Keep at it Monty. Greatness has a price. You my good sir are Great.
