Monty Oum has passed awayI am very sorry to have to inform everyone that Monty Oum has passed away. I am not sure what else to say, just that I'm sure everyone here is grieving.
You can read Matt's Journal here (the site is taking a of traffic so you might have to wait before reading it).
Rest in piece, Monty. We'll miss you.
Guys this does not mean the show is over. You have to remember that RWBY (just like RVB) has its own staff of animators that work the show. Its not Monty that animates the whole thing on his own. Not to mention that Miles and Kerry are the ones in charge of the writing of the show. Monty was the Creator and the one who helped push the show along. If anything the decision to continue the show will fall into the hands of Miles and Kerry.
Do not fret. I do not think they would want to end Monty's dream because of what happened. If anything the one true thing they will have to decide on is who will voice Re

Hello, everyone. Even though most of us did not know Monty Oum personally, I can tell that we are all grieving over his passing. I can say for myself that so far this week I couldn't get him off my mind.
It's important that even as we move on, we reflect on why we love Monty so much. I have taken the time to collect all of the responses the Rooster Teeth people have put out this pass week. If you don't have a twitter or Rooster Teeth account, this is for you. It's a huge list, so I'll link it all on the bottom.
We have gotten a HUGE amount of RIP art, so we are opening a new folder just for those pieces. All of the work that has already been accepted will be moved there. The folder will be closed once there are no more pieces being submitted just to make sure there aren't too many folders to submit to. If you make a piece much later and the folder is closed, just note us to put your work there. The folder will be opened again at times we expect there to be more works
