As a big supporter and fan of RoosterTeeth Monty was a fantastic man whom created RWBY.. I fell in love with V1 through 3 and love V4 so far...

R.I.P Monty...we miss you ever so deeply 😔✌

I wonder if the volume 3 opening was inspired by this piece or if it was a coincidence.
Vinpap Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2017
The birds and the sun was Monty's signature. So... They both were inspired by it
dsfisher Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I know that, I meant the sun representing the O with actual birds.
Vinpap Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2017
But... That's what I'm saying. His signature was a sun and birds

Maybe that's why it was <gs id="b7b87db3-8868-45c9-a10e-efad4f917078" ginger_software_uiphraseguid="13c5f5f0-f095-47f0-a12a-e2b2eb4241a4" class="GINGER_SOFTWARE_mark gr-progress">apart</gs> of the opening?

I am extremely disheartened and angry that Monty had to be taken from the world far too soon. But we can only move ahead and remember. I hope he's happy wherever he is now, great people are never truly gone, they walk with with those who take the time to remember. This stunning art piece is a beautiful farewell to a young man gone too soon.

GrimmPax Featured By Owner Edited Apr 29, 2015
I have not been paying attention to my favorite artists in a while so I never knew Monty died until now. I feel horrible for not knowing before now and that he died so young.

Edit: Additionally, you created a beautiful tribute for him.
Logyra Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I did a pencil Black&White version of your artwork because I loved it so much :3…
Hope you don't mind :) I also gave you credit!
Have a wonderful day and keep moving forward!

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!
