I don't know how many people here are fans of Rooster Teeth, but Monty died yesterday at 4:34pm. He was an animator at Rooster Teeth who did the animation for a few seasons on Red vs Blue, the creator of RWBY, and he also made Haloid. If anyone can't use the site heres what it says:

- Our friend, inspiration and co-worker Monty Oum passed away yesterday afternoon at 4:34 PM surrounded by people who loved him very much. Ten days ago Monty suffered a severe allergic reaction during a simple medical procedure that left him in a coma. Although he fought bravely, his body was not able to recover. During his time in the hospital he was well cared for and never in pain at any time.
Monty is survived by his wife Sheena, his father Mony, his brothers Woody, Sey, Chivy and Neat, and his sisters Thea and Theary, as well as a countless number of fans and friends. We were so proud to be a part of his life and we will miss him greatly.
Your generosity during the hours after the public statement on Friday will help his family deal with the costs of his care and his passing. You made an incredible difference during a difficult time and we cannot thank you enough.
As for honoring Monty, we will do that in our own way. In lieu of flowers or gifts, we ask that you simply do something creative. Use your imagination to make the world a better place in any way that you can. If you know Monty like we do, then you know he would certainly be doing that if he were able to.
Monty was 33 years old.
We love you, Monty.
Rest in peace Monty.

Heartbroken. Purely heartbroken.
My respects go out to his family and friends.

- Hey guys, I’m really sorry to bring this sad news to the forefront but it needs to be known. Monty Oum of Rooster Teeth passed away.
I only had the chance to meet him once so I can’t speak as though I am his close friend but I know a few people at Rooster Teeth and he was very close to many of my friends. They are still in shock and mourning at the sudden loss of an incredibly talented and kind-hearted individual and I would like to express my condolences to his family and friends. If you would like to know more you can read about the situation on the Rooster Teeth website. [X]
I will not be uploading a second video today as it would seem inappropriate to show silliness on this sad day. I will be spending time with some friends of Monty’s to help them through this loss.
Just for today I ask that you take a small break to pay respects to Monty’s friends and families and honor their privacy during this tough time in their life. Also, as a personal favor please remember to always keep the ones you love close to your heart.
Rest in peace and may there be a studio for you in the afterlife.
Thank you for everything you have given in this life.
