Followed Monty ever since He made those old Road animations, I was always happy He made it this far but still kinda hoping He would continue that too.

You will be missed man.

This man defiantly inspired me to make my one animations one day just like how Hayao Miyazaki,Walt Disney, and people in Dreamworks gave me artistic values. I'll defiantly make an anime, tv show, cartoon, short film, or video game with cell shaded 3D anime characters to carry out his legacy. So that RWBY fans like u and I can have a similar visual experience. I'll go to college for my degree just to do that. Wish us all luck for those who want to go a similar path I am tying to achieve. RIP Monty Oum.

Sadly, I never knew of you till after your passing. I wish I was able to learn of you much sooner because your work is some of the greatest pieces I've ever come across. Even after your life you've motivated me to push forward my dreams, and I'm going to dedicate my current project to you, because if there was never a Monty Oum, the world would have never gotten to experience your great work, as well as my future work. Rest In Peace, Monty. And thank you.

Monty, Im so sorry I never got the chance to meet you... You were a wonderful and inspirational person to so many people... you still are... Im also sorry I havent gotten to know about you until you made RWBY... I love the show so much it hurts... I always listen to the soundtrack every day, weather Im doing my homework or just bored... I always resort to RWBY to make myself feel better... Thank you so much for enlightening my life and so many others... Everyday I think about you and the impact youve had with RWBY... Im a very emotional person and it makes me sad that I couldnt meet you and thank you personally... You probably know this but everyday I thank you... Im mostly sorry for all your family and friends... This world lost a great person and so soon... We all care about you Monty, and we all miss you so much... I hope you continue to guide all of us through rough times we may face... I hope your glad Rooster Teeth is continuing your creation... I know itll be different then before, but deep down I know youll guide them in the right direction while they work on it... I will continue to pray and talk to you every day... *Hope you dont mind* BTW Im cosplaying as Penny... Its amazing how you can make so many characters have such diverse personalities... Penny is just like me...

Thank You and We all love you Monty... <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 Fly High <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

P.S. You were my senior quote! ¨Keep Moving Forward¨-Monty Oum

From Haliod to DeadFantesy to RWBY you inspired me to be a better artist I will miss you...

I never spoke to Mr. Oum but thank you for providing the inspiration I needed to keep going when... when I was ready to give up on everything.  Thanks to your inspiring words this mere ember seeks to become a conflagration.  I hope we meet in another life.
