I'm sure everyone who cares knows that Monty Oum, creator of Dead Fantasy, Haloid, and RWBY (among other things) has gone to the arcade in the sky. He's busting moves with Jesus now and logging a high score on DDR that even God's gotta call impressive.
It's been tough on myself and my friends as he was such an integral part of our lives. We watched his shows as a group. We worshiped his work ethic and creativity. We valued his ideas and words. He made me want to be a better person and to achieve the things I desire. I cried a bunch and now I'm gonna do something.
Yesterday was also Setsuban, which is a Japanese holiday dedicated to the expulsion of demons and bad juju. It allows there to be room for all the good in your life. I let all my sadness out an now I'm ready to help my heartbroken buddy on his road to coping. We are gonna demo out podcast, which we have been dying to make forever now, and hopefully will work out the bugs in time for Valentine's Day. Also on the list of to dos is Earth 81. and I have been working on it for a while now and I was able to locate my early draft notes and put them in a safe place so that I won't lose them again. I also created a playlist of music which goes with the series and began compiling imagery to inspire panels of the comic. We enlisted the help of to help in the art side of the comic. Out tumblr: baaaalisticstudios.tumblr.com/ isn't doing a ton yet, but hopefully will have some in progress art up in the near future. Life and work have kinda gotten in the way of updates. We are working to remedy that even if it means kicking our dead asses in gear.
Monty believed in getting the job done and done right. I won't let him down!
