I just realized that the birds and the sun form Monty's signature. Rip Monty.

Stellar work. I wish I could have met him in person, but alas, I will only know him through one of his greatest gifts to this world. May RWBY live on, and May he rest peacefully knowing he inspired millions.

How sad....yet this art is a amazing tribute to Monty. Without him, RWBY wouldn't even exist.

- Word from me, Sammy G
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.

The birds and the sun was Monty's signature. So... They both were inspired by it

I know that, I meant the sun representing the O with actual birds.
Vinpap's avatar
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.
