      Come back to us, Shane! RWBY needs you! What's going to happen to the quality with both Monty AND you gone? ;(

        Because I'm sure he wants to be guilted by fans atm.
        In his words "Things did not go as planned". Clearly he did not plan on leaving, and I'll go ahead and assume he wouldn't have wanted to under ideal circumstances. Don't make this harder for the guy than I'm sure it already is. This man loved RWBY more than 99% of the people who know about it. Wishing him the best of luck going forward is all we can do now.

        I'm going to try. My wife has a new crazy work schedule so I need to rush home almost right when it starts. I might try to make an appearance right at the start then jet out of there.

        kidding. there are a few indie bundle sites.
        When they put out a bundle of 6-12 games for
        like $1-4, if there's anything good in em I try
        to grab it while it's available. Sometimes there
        are games in the bundle that I already own.

      Nice work on that last episode of RWBY! Whose Idea was the sick gunchucks? Also did you get that message I sent awhile back for some advice about the character I sent you?(Cloth Stuff)

        No problem man! But still nice work with Penny! She just became one of my favorite characters. I got another sequence I'm working now (involves volcanoes!), mind if I get your opinion in a few days?

        Hey thanks. Monty handled the Sun/Blake fight, I did the Penny fight. He had the gunchucks idea long before RWBY was a show. Sorry about not responding earlier. It's been super hard to reply to people just because of the amount of work I've had on my plate. I wish I could give good advice on clothes but my design skills are butt. Monty is the style guy. And our character concept artist who takes the art even further lives in HongKong.

      newer version
      I am interested in providing Monty and the rest of Team RWBY, with ideas and was wondering if you could recommend me. I am putting one of my earlier ideas below. Tell me if it is any good.
      This is the updated version
      A guy named Lan Jingshen, he uses a pair of long nun chucks with guns at the ends, the nun chucks can connect into a staff, and when connected the guns gain more fire power and can fire in the directions the tips are pointing at. Also it can become a bow if he bends the chains at the right angles. However, his true forte is hand to hand combat. He has high mastery of Aura (Meditates daily to train his Aura), his semblance is manipulation of pure energy, and when using his full strength, blue lines cover his entire body and he gains enhanced abilities. He has messy black hair with azure highlights, wears a pair of glasses that change into a mask when he begins combat, has a blue and black trench coat along with a pair of black pants with two blue steaks running down the sides, and when fighting takes off the coat in this case he wears a blue and black tank top, Also wears black gloves. Height wise he would be a bit taller than Yang. Body is covered with scars of various shapes and sizes due to his frequent fights with High level Grimm. Large tattoo on his back (I’ll send you a rough sketch of it if you like the character). His combat style is formless, and draws from a myriad of martial arts styles. He also has a pet Golden Retriever, the golden retriever enjoys stealing other people’s laundry, and always tries to kiss up to people.
      I would also like to put in his personality in case it is (and some back story too). A calm cool guy, who's always the peacemaker, and is very devoted to whatever he sets his mind to, he would also be very learned, polite, and versatile ( able to use most weapons if necessary) Doesn't speak very loudly, and is sometimes ignored. Very good at making friends and is rather social, in a detached way ( but although there are many who he calls friend, before he met team RWBY there were none he truly believed to be his friend, except his master). Believes that the best way for a person to become stronger and learn is for them to experience things themselves, so he often keeps knowledge to himself, even if it would be beneficial for the other person to know. He is wise far beyond his years, one of the main reasons he came to Beacon was to find that “special someone†his grandpa always told him about. I think it would be humorous if he developed a crush on Yang, and as a result becomes very awkward and a bit clumsy whenever she is near. He also trains in a lot of his spare time in fact his daily regime is kill 10 powerful Grimm a day. Back story is that he woke up by the sea when he was 4 with no memory, he is found by the nearby villagers and is taken care of, during this time he almost lived in local library, and educated himself there. He later meets a man who would become his teacher; a white tiger Faunus named Brom Silverfang, who was a founding member of White Fang, but left after some of the organizations more brutal operations. Lan makes his nun chuk/staff/ gun from parts found in a dump in a city he travels to. He also learns a variety of skills on his travels (cooking, clothes making, engineering, zoology, etc.) but has almost zero pop culture knowledge. During his travels, he joined White Fang for a few months and also was employed by the Schnee company for a few years (currently owns some of its high value stocks), in both cases he learned many of the secrets in both organizations. He also has experience in the underground crime world (learning the ways of the street). I think it would also be fun if at one point he encountered Yang and Ruby before they were adopted, because this could help them connect later in. Later in his travels with his master (when he is around 15) he discovers an ancient piece of technology called INDEX, and after gaining more mastery of his AURA he uses INDEX as a base to create a weapon called the ERUDITE ARMORY, which can transform into any weapon he knows how to make (able to fill the sky with a menagerie of different armaments). It is very heavy and difficult to use so he doesn't use it often, because of the massive amount of aura it consumes while in use. His master is later killed by a giant Grimm know as Shade the Eighth Terror (Shade cannot be harmed by purely physical attacks, and that is all Brom had , even though they were super powerful physical attacks that were able to cleave mountains), but by that time Lan was skilled enough to kill it with his Aura infused ERUDITE ARMORY. When the Shade died, part of its essence infected Lan, and slowly eats away at his soul, because of this his AURA was greatly weakened and now can only use the ERUDITE ARMORY for 30 seconds a day. However, Brom’s soul entered into Lan as well and helps him keep SHADE at bay (the downside is Lan now has the crazy, perverted old man yammering at him 24/7). Was noticed by BEACON and gained a combat scholarship just like RUBY after saving a group of elite hunters from high class monsters (this was before he battled with the SHADE, which took place 3 months before he was going to transfer to BEACON). Currently he is much weakened due to the SHADE’s essence infecting him (sometimes causing to lose control of himself and turning into a half-Grimm state), his current combat ability (without using the armory) is slightly higher than Pyrrha’s. Right now is trying to control the Grimm inside.
      He is 17 or 18 years old.
      Tell me what you think of him

      question: why did you put multiple styles in the episode? (of rwby)

      we have your standed style (the 3d)
      i'm guessing illustrator for the news report
      and in the final scene befor the credits there was a landscape which looked like it was made in photoshop

      So yeah, I want to apologize for the "momentary rage" that I felt towards RT from not being able to watch the "Live Feeds" of RTX on UTube. Being that I am stuck in Ky and unable to attend due to my work schedule and as I tried to watch it, it said "We are exp. tech. diff. at this time". And, for a moment I wanted to rage on the comments sections about my slight inconvenience in said matter. Then I realized, In the middle of my drunken stupor, that I was over 19 hours late for the Live Stream. So whether or not that it matters, I'll apologize to you and every one for every stupid comment on here or YouTube that may have resulted from "stupid people being stupid". Sincerely AssaultPickle77

        I appreciate it. And I plan to attend next year, as I had this year, but it obviously fell through. I know the "Crew" would have mental breakdowns but I vote they do another next weekend!

        Hey no problem man. The internet makes it too easy for us to speak our minds without filtering first. My wife is always trying to watch out for me. I've said things many time and felt studid too but eh whatever. I'm sorry you had to miss the life feeds. I missed a lot of stuff even being there all weekend. I'm looking forward to the RTX videos when they finish them. Hope to see you next there next year.

      RWBY is looking amazing, you animators have done a fantastic job with RvB and now RWBY is looking like it will be able to compete with it on a technical level. As a first year animator I am highly impressed with the work and I hope to one day be a part of something as badass.
