We'll Miss You Monty by Mitsuko17
We'll Miss You Monty
I wanted to tribute something to Monty Oum.

At first, all I had done was light a candle on his funeral weekend, simply because I couldn't will myself to draw something for him. It still made me feel very sad knowing that he was gone, but still, I tried and when it was finally done on paper, I was happy. As I was drawing this with my tablet, I was crying and it took a long time to finish, much longer than I had wanted it to. It was hard to wrap my head around the fact that someone who was so inspiring and talented had passed away so suddenly. I couldn't even look at other tributes that were for me because they made me cry but also happy to see that others shared what I was feeling. I had gotten stuck and so precise with certain pieces of this drawing, convincing myself that it had to be perfect no matter what, but a sudden thought struck me during this..."I just had to convey what I was feeling and put my personality into it. Perfection is not the goal, just show how Monty inspired you." And that's what I did. You know, once hearing that the guy who did all of those Dead Fantasies and Haloid was in the works of making a series, well, it had me jumping for joy. When I first saw the "Red Trailer", I recognized the fighting choreography quickly and was immediately drawn to this. To be honest, only seeing that trailer was enough to cause me to rewatch it as many times as I could until I drew Ruby for the first time, before she even had a name...that was just how magnetizing his work was.  Now, even though I drew Ruby with tears in her eyes, I had to have her smile as well because it was to show that even though Monty has passed away, he still lives in her heart, just like he does for everyone else which is why I feel that he won't be forgotten, he was simply too amazing for that.

Eventually, I know I'll be able to watch RWBY and RedVSBlue again without breaking down into tears, it's ok to feel sad about this but I will also remember how his creativity made me happy.

Monty Oum, I loved watching your creative mind in work, heh...I loved watching you dance as well. Yes, I will miss you but I won't forget you.

Thank you, Monty Oum, for everything. RIP, you creative, inspiring soul.

The first journal of the year and sadly it's a depressing one, I apologize about this but I wanted to get this out. You don't have to read this if you don't want to.

Now, last Sunday, Feburary 1st, a very creative animator had passed away. That animator's name is Monty Oum. Sadly, I didn't hear about this until Monday at 6:33pm and before I had heard this news I was simply saying things in posts such as "get well, monty" and even that sunday, I sat down and watched some Red VS Blue just to put me in a good mood and to laugh. None the less when I had heard the sad news that he had passed, I started sobbing immediately. I couldn't believe someone so talented and so inspiring was gone so suddenly but he was human like the rest of us. Still, it broke my heart, I couldn't hide how I was feeling for too long.

Needless to say, I wanted to draw something as tribute for Monty Oum but I had no drive or inspiration, I just felt sad. Looking at all the other drawings or videos of tributes for him had me in tears, in fact...seeing them now still makes me cry. I loved seeing Monty's work in motion, I enjoyed Rwby, Red VS Blue, Dead Fantasy, much creativity and I was inspired while watching them all. I wanted to make my characters be amazing, have determination, get frustrated, just to be alive...his work definitely made me want to draw more, listening to music from said creations I mentioned were enough to inspire me to draw because I felt it.

To be honest, I rewatched all of those creations for inspiration or just because I wanted to see them again because they made me happy. To say the least this has taken quite a toll on me, the next drawing I plan to post will be a tribute to him, even though I've been depressed about my drawings lately, I want to do this for him. Sorry it won't be a super happy lovey drawing for Valentine's Day but...I hope you'll all understand.

Monty Oum, thank you for the creative, inspiring talent you showed everytime you worked on anything, I loved watching your work and still do...heh, I loved watching you dance, I thought you were a funny, awesome guy. You will be missed, you creative, amazing, inspiring soul.

Good night, Monty. We'll miss you.

Hello, I tried to add you to at least one of my groups because you accepted having at least one thing of yours in at least one of my groups, but the invitation expired, so I've decided to send a general message to the people who fit this category, since sometimes people just don't notice the invitations. If you want to join in the future, I'll accept you.
