I will also recommend you watch seasons 8 and nine of the web series Red vs Blue, where some of his work is.

You can find them on the Rooster Teeth official website.

He was truly great, and I am a huge fan of his work
Rest in peace Monty.

Still so surreal to wake up cause I keep expecting him to tweet something silly or whatever and it still hasn't kicked in for some that he's actually gone. I know a few people have been going around in game using RWBY skins with guild names like Rest In Piece Monty, Rest Well, and such and I'm really glad to see that he's had that kinda effect on just about anyone I meet. It sucks in all honesty and it hurts that some people will never get to meet Monty or rather, meet him how they wanted so all I can say is be the person he'd want you to be. All I can really say is that I'm glad that so many people care and I honestly wish I could have thanked him for being such a huge influence to a lot of people, myself included, for God knows how long. I mean the fact that he was a 33 year old High School drop out and achieved so much is just astounding and a clear sign that anyone can achieve anything if they have the resolve, regardless of what their level of education is at but enough of my monologuing.

RWBY is on Netflix last I checked and if anyone also wants to watch it as is RvB (the first few seasons anyway) and like the above message says, you can also watch it on the Roosterteeth site.

Here's some of his earlier work too and a link to his youtube channel and a link to his DeviantArt and lastly his twitter account (looking at all his old tweets made me laugh a bit and some of them are really deep and helpful right about now). I also highly recommend watching all of these and just anything with him in it.

But anyway, thank you Monty for being so incredibly amazing and just an astounding influence to everyone and rest well and I hope there is a crapton of DDR to play and wigs to wear and lemons for you to punch the shit outta wherever you are now.
[[ P.S.: Obviously if anyone plans on posting anything artsy related to him, Sheena, his wife, doesn't mind pictures or artworks but please respect her when she says do not pretend to be him. ]]

News of his death was a blow to me. RWBY is great and has been my inspiration to write and draw better. His time with us will never be forgotten.

I found this amazing 4 minute tribute to him that is just him and his animations and how cool he was. It is really respectful and you will get a laugh or two in.
Rest in Peace

I've never seen or read any of RWBY, nor do I know what it is about. But I am still stunned at the sudden death of this man, it seems that many people looked up to him and enjoyed his works. May he rest in peace.
