Monty Oum

The name may not mean much to some people, but to some, he is a well-known game animator, producing hugely popular shorts and series such as RWBY and my favourite, Dead Fantasy — a cross between Dead or Alive and Final Fantasy. It has been reported that he has passed away due to an allergic reaction during a medical procedure that put him in a coma.

Here is the blog entry detailing the news: http://roosterteeth.com/members/journal/entry.php?id=3302319

And in case you haven’t seen his work, here is Dead Fantasy (all the parts spliced together)
