A Great Loss for the Animation World

Earlier this week the animation community has suffered a tragic loss. Monty Oum of Rooster Teeth passed away unexpectedly.

Monty Oum was the chief animator at Rooster Teeth, a production company responsible for many popular web series including Red vs. Blue, Achievement Hunter, and RWBY. Monty's animations have appeared in numerous projects, perhaps most notably the last few seasons of Red vs Blue, as well as RWBY, 3D anime style web series that is largely his own creation. Monty created his animation through the use of Smith Micro's Poser Software.

Monty was a huge creative force at Rooster Teeth, and he will surely be missed. If you're a fan of video game culture or anime, I would recommend checking out some of his videos and other series hosted on Rooster Teeth's website.
