Just want to share that, Monty Oum, you are and will forever be an inspiration for many. For those of us that at least knew your name, those that who knew the you, and for those that knew your creations... Your dedication and work is also forever astounding. It really is such a shame that someone as talented as you was taken away from us and your dear ones so soon and so young. Thank you for all the creations you have done thus far. May your legacy live on!

Did Monty Oum passed away in real life? Or did his Deviantart account got deactivate? If he did passed away in real life, how did he died? What causes his death? When did he passed away? For how long? I'm confusing here. I'm so sorry for your lost everyone. Hope you guys feel better. He was the first Deviantart user to pass away.

Montyoum really did passed away in real life. He died on Sunday, August 30th, 2015. Just 2 months ago. Thank you for sending me this link GuerrieroNero. I'm really sorry for your lost. He was a good Deviantart User. He was the best drawer and Cosplayer ever. May god rest his soul. I wonder what causes his death though. Did you know?

He actually died on Feb. 1st this year.

He's missed by so many people that the news actually made it in the New York Times.…

But his legend and legacy lives on.

Your wisdom will be spread across the internet and inspire future and current artists to be or even surpass you. I wish you would've been around to know this, I will forever be reminded of your dedication to your craft. Thank you Monty and thank you RT.

Stop faking and finish the next Dead Fantasy! Meh, I guess i'll wait patiently.. :(

Hey Asshole, Monty is dead. You wont ever get another dead fantasy from him. Also he is not faking his death. You are a horrible person for thinking that.
GuerrieroNero Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2015
Maybe he can still see Monty...y'know, being brain dead and all...
jakled Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2015  Student Writer
Well maybe, or he is just an insane lunatic.

Still miss you. Got back to DA again just to realize I never been to your account before.

Not many know this but, RWBY inspired me to develop further my novel series and to never give up. Please pray for us if you're on the other side. We all miss you...I wish you'd come back...I lost Terry Pratchett, Robin Williams, you... too close together in the span of one year...Too many inspirations lost just as I've been trying to get on my feet as being a real writer.

Hey Monty. Just working on my stuff. You remain an inspiration to me beyond life and death.
Still don't like to believe that you're truly gone, especially when RWBY still have such a long way to go.
Season 3 is around the corner... I think. Give the RT team a kick, would'ya?

You will be remembered as the man who inspired, who achieved great things, who was admired by many. These are the things you earned gracefully. And thus you move on, without any reason to the contrary.

Rest well, brother. You were correct, there truly is no futility, even in death. You continue to inspire us all.
