One of the greatest Animators I have Ever seen passed away not afew days ago (Feb 3rd as of this writing) at age 33.
His Passing is going to leave a huge vacuum not only in the webspace but in my Heart too. Montys work was a huge inspiration, the level of production he could do solo was incredible and gave me the courage to want to perfect my level of understanding in animation.
If you don't know who he is, just type in "Dead Fantasy", its a crossover brawl between various Dead or alive and Final Fantasy characters.
here is one of his Best: www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSyyCX…
God rest your Soul Monty, you impacted so many peoples lives in a positive way. I will continue to strive to be the very best I can be, thankyou so much for helping start me on this path, it will not be easy without you to look up to, but I am in good hands, it will all work out fine.
Brandon Jones, the voice of www.gametrailers.com/ did his little farewell message recently :www.gametrailers.com/videos/0k…
And Also i mean to watch his 3d anime series R.W.B.Y. which is the closest we have to a continuation of the amazing fight animation he showed in Dead fantasy only with his own original characters.
Farewell Monty, may your work continue to inspire for years to come.
You will always be remembered.
