First off Happy half-off Candy day! (Feb. 15)

tl;dr: I'm working on an action comic, it's in planning right now; will be doing tf comics for prep; tf theme likely to last til April.

Second off, this has been really really hard for me to write. I've re-written this article several times, it's never felt right, granted what I'm talking about or more what prefaces what I'm talking about never feels right.

I don't think losing someone so young ever feels right.

Monty from what I understand didn't have any real last words as he died whilst in a coma, but from everyone who knew him from friends to family and co-workers he believed in one main thing never giving up; always moving forward that through our effort we transcend ourselves through others. To quote his own work, "for it is in passing that we achieve immortality"

Monty's been inspiring me for years but RWBY really got my creative spark a blazing in a way that it hadn't been in years, and his work on RVB holy shit.

I'm an emotional person by nature, and I think an empathic person so I often take on the emotions of others as well willing or not. So I've been rather emotional the past few weeks, and even had dreams relating to this. I've had to take break several time these past few weeks just to let myself cry ... but I'm a crier.

I didn't really start crying often, until I started with moving forward. I was depressed (well more so than normal) and teared up sure but moving forward artistically brought a lot more tears.

What?

I suppose I should clarify what moving forward is, it's two things. First is plotting an on going action/drama web comic. Second is getting my finished novel, published (traditionally).

For updates on both, I'll be using twitter (Will also contain political opinions): twitter.com/vyctorian

Why/ Is it because of Monty's death?

No and yes. I had this idea in mind before all this and have tried the comic part before but, Monty's death and wishes resonated with me. Monty loved Tengan Toppa Gurren Lagann; and TTGL is an absolutely huge series to me. When I learned it was required watching for everyone working on RWBY; that pushed me to binge the series.

And the more I read of Monty the more I realized he took that series to heart as a major inspiration, not just for his work but seemingly his life (or it at least resonated with his existing beliefs). Often times the things he said seemed like they'd fit right in with the philosophy of the series (TTGL).

There's a line from that series that I want to quote now, that I feel encompasses my motivation and why I'm doing this now:

"[He] is dead. He's gone! But he's ... here in my heart! He lives on as a part of me!"

Monty believed in the human will and creative spirit, I did as well before he passed but I haven't been as vocal about it and I've allowed myself to be clouded by doubt but I'm not doing that anymore, If I dig I am doing to dig through to the heavens, no matter whats in my way; I'm not giving up anymore or allowing excuses, what if's, should if's or if only's to get in my way.

I've wanted to make action comics for most of my life and I'm going to do it.

So now what?


A few things.

I'm plotting out the comic but as for submissions I want to keep the TF theme going, but I want to focus on comics that feature TF's along with action bits in them even if it's just a panel or two so I can get in the rhythm of things.

The TF theme will likely keep going until the end of March or even April or further but I'll be likely doing more "If it inspires me" art as well in that time.

While that is happening I wanna work more on the plotting of the comic and even start on some basic drawings. ATM I got the first few chapters plotted out and know where the narrative is leading.

As for release I'm going for a "when it's done", but it will likely be launched sometime this year.

Thank you for reading, I hope to get all these gears working shortly.

P.S. Sorry for being slow with replies and such.
