Remember to wake up early tomorrow to watch the episode!
This reminds me of those musicians that tried to sue over elevator music. It's like... how stupid are you?
This is a completely valid complaint, why are you people just brushing them off as idiots? Monty may not have known he was doing anything illegal, but he's still obviously guilty of copying these MMD textures.
Aw geez, I'm no good at this...
S-so hey, you guys have a great thread going here... lots of great stuff here. I don't mean to be... y'know, negative or anything... I'm certainly not being critical of you, goodness knows, but I think maybe... this thread could use a little something.
N-now wait a minute! I'm not suggesting anything major, you guys run this general, and you know how best to run it. I wouldn't ever want to tell you how to do your job! B-but maybe, just maybe... this one small suggestion, it would make your already great and amazing thread just a little bit more amazing, and great and... and wonderful, y'see...
So do you think maybe you could add just a little... just a tiiiiiiny bit of...
Look, Yang, while I don't discount the possibility of there being some person out there with an illusion semblance or hypnosis or whatever that made you see something that wasn't there. It's a world full of superpowers, it could easily happen.
But you're a really violent person, even for a Huntress, and you let your passion drive you. And that passion is anger. I want to believe you wouldn't smash the leg of someone you had been fighting in a violent berserker rage... But it wasn't surprising seeing you do it.
lad there already was with that hanging Yang
How about Rubella Yang instead?
Similar is not stolen.
Looking at it, they have similarities but if you look long and hard enough you can find that with just about anything anymore. It is not a streight copy and if you think it is you should get your eyes checked, it also heavily modified if it is an edit. Also the files at the top are meshes, they can look very similar, and the model bits are obviously not the same. Generic Spiky hair is not something exclusive to MMD. Buckled boots are also not exclusive to MMD, now. Hell do you have any evidence they were stolen? They could have seen these and remade them as their own take which is where the stark differences come from.
So saying 'they stole it' without any real evidence to back it up makes you look like you have no idea what the fuck you are talking about.
I'm the retard? You realize it's illegal to rip ANYTHING from MMD and put it on your own product to sell, right? It's very clear that at the very least some of these were outright copy pasted into rwby.
Read above. Jesus, you guys complain about how terrible Rooster Teeth is and then suck Monty's cock when their laziness is called out.
>Read above. Jesus, you guys complain about how terrible Rooster Teeth is and then suck Monty's cock when their laziness is called out.
No I am saying that there are distinct differences between the citations for this infringement. And the Burden of proof is laid upon the accuser.
I am sure you would also say that The West Side Story is copy write infringement because it is basically a copy/paste of Romeo and Juliette with alterations.
Monty's too dead to take responsibility so whaddya want RT to do? Pay them all? Make their own stuff? Make a big-ass "I'm Sorry" blog post?
Who knows, maybe that's the reason Shane quit, so that he wouldn't have to deal with the drama.

Come on, RWBYg. Step it up.
You don't seem to understand. This is basically tracing over another's art and calling it yours, and getting paid in the process. Udonge has been both an actual character and an MMD model for years, and it's very clear Monty copied this character to make Velvet.
I want people to realize that this is an actual problem. It's very obvious that some of this stuff is stolen, but I don't know if the blame can even be put on RT if only Monty knew about it.
Obviously we should dig up Monty's corpse and put it on trial.
I don't mind if she's closet gay or "straight"up homophobe but she has to run at some point.
It's the only reason why that image edit is my favourite so far.
ITS ALREADY IN MY BLOODSTREAM.
>Monty planned his death to avoid getting busted, get away scot free, and no longer have to deal with RT's bullshit anymore.
But Udonge's ears and she doesn't have human ears. Also, Velvet doesn't have sex appeal.
Who /necromancer/ or /deadspeaker/ here?
>I want people to realize that this is an actual problem
Bullshit, if this was true you would inform the person/company that owns the Copyright rather the post it publicly, then they would deal with it as they see fit.
The fact you are trying to cause an issue using ignorance and hype shows you are either wrong or lying.
Because guess what, at the end of the day bitching about it online does nothing, only the holder of the copyright can set any wrong doing to rights.
Thank you for getting the joke.
Have my favorite Rube.
>But Udonge's ears and she doesn't have human ears. Also, Velvet doesn't have sex appeal.
It's not the ear model, it's the hair. It's exactly the same except the edited sides.
That's from 5 years ago.
So I take it this is the actual bait?
>who wants to actually discuss something related to rwby? Let's make more greentexts!
Because when people wanted to expose Richard Simmon's son copying Bleach everyone just emailed Kubo, right? Right guys?
>Because when people wanted to expose Richard Simmon's son copying Bleach everyone just emailed Kubo, right? Right guys?
I wasn't part of that but if I had been, yeah I would have, making a big fuss on the internet just breeds a bunch of misinformation. It is better to let the parties that are actually involved figure out what happened rather then speculate and try to cause a fuss.
It's not speculation when it's this goddamn obvious. The problem is fanboys like you are just going to jump on RT's cock trying to defend this. People get exposed by spreading the word, stop acting like a fucking retard.
>One character, they have similar but not exactly the same hair, white skin and bunny ears.
You have no knowledge of copyright laws and worse you have no knowledge of programming. RWBY and MMD use the same program so yes there will be similarities.
It concerns me that I only knew about this through Oglaf
>they have similar but not exactly the same hair
It's literally the exact same hair with the sides taken out to show human ears. Not to mention Weiss's ears are a 1:1 match with the comparison.
Yeah and look what happened to GamerGate, people try to spread the word but idiots from both sides ruined it all.
Look, I gave up trying to involve myself in internet drama a long time ago. All it does is cause more problems and overblow the situation because both sides have fervor. I'd rather just stay in the gray sidelines, away from it all.
You can't get a screenshot or anything? Come on now.
These are two bunny characters with nearly the exact same hairstyle from a program that can easily transfer these textures. Monty might have not known that taking MMD files and editing them is illegal, but he most likely still did it.
Then don't fucking respond to the posts about "internet drama".
Its called a hime cut and there is no copy right on it.
Anon, you have nothing. The two companies use an third party model program that neither has the copyrights two, in order for there to be a theft the characters in question would need to be a 100%,
You cannot be serious. They have same exact fucking spaces between strands. It is illegal to
A) transfer MMD made files into other formats
B) make a profit from MMD textures
You don't have to own either model programs for it to be illegal.
These are the exact same fucking ears except they're elongated.
You retards always do this. You're just as bad as the people that praise rwby at this point.
Just sayin' that there's a third option.
Not as good as mine (>>78822200), but here's the oldest screencap I have (according to image digits)
There used to be major lawsuits in the 20th century music industry just because a tiny snippet of one song was edited and used in another, and the musician didn't even mean it. You really want a repeat of that, don't you? Of course you do. I already witnessed such scandals from some guy's animation, all because it was from an explosion.
>inb4 "but the things that were copied ARE copyrighted!"
It is completely illegal to sell a product someone else made with MMD
I'm saying these people exposing this aren't complete idiots like you want to believe.
Here are your (you)s are we done yet?
Because it isn't discussion anymore, it has devolved into shit posting.
Finished this stupid Neon fic.
>1v1 loser finals.
>Not broadcast because people want to see the flashy shit of the main fights.
>An official is there. Nobody else is though.
>You’re fighting the crazy rainbow catgirl.
>”Hey, you’re Anon right?”
>”Yup. And you’re... Neo?”
>She frowns momentarily, but perks up again.
>”Neon. But you were close. You’d think I’d be pretty memorable, with my semblance and everything.”
>She’s back to pouting. It appears she cares less about the match now that she’s in the losers’ bracket.
>At least she seems to be being blunt. From the match you saw with her before, her main trick is annoying the enemy until they make a mistake.
>She looks back over to you. You speak to her.
>”Hey, let’s have a good match. At least we can enjoy ourselves here in this arena. You’ll still be known as one of the teams that made it this far.”
>She doesn’t seem impressed. Evidently, your speech sounded better in your head.
>”Well whatever. Boring fighting aside, at least I can have a look around the country. That’d be nice.”
>Ah, there it is. Yup, that hurts.
>The judge looks between you and her before asking if you’re good to start the match.
>You adjust your coat and nod to the judge.
>Neon gives him the thumbs up while looking intensely at you.
>Neon immediately speeds off, her rainbow trail following her.
>You stand still, drawing your weapons. Twin bladed tonfas with wind dust infused into the metal.
>The girl realises you aren’t following her and rushes up to you.
>”Whaaaat’s the matter? Can’t keep up? Well, if you won’t come to me, I’ll come to you!”
>She swings her rave-chucks at you, but you easily dodge. If she wasn’t also focussing on avoiding stacking on her roller skates, that might have actually bothered you.
>She swoops around for another attack.
>She swings high, you lean back into a matrix dodge and swing into her skates, sending her flying over you.
>You notice something.
>Whatever it is, it’s too late to inspect. She’s back on her feet in her now wheelless boots.
>”You’ll pay for that.”
>You have angered the catgirl.
>She charges you and swings hard.
>You dodge again.
>”What’s the matter? Can’t fight a level-headed person?” You tease. She’s the one getting upset now.
>You lift a finger at her and pull it toward you, a common “come at me” gesture.
>She charges again, but this time you fight back.
>You start up your wind dust so your swings send out blade shockwaves.
>One side of the field is covered in ice, the other carved up worse than a turkey with a chainsaw.
>Neither of you gives an inch, but the fight is going nowhere fast.
>Her nun-chucks hit your hand, freezing it to the weapon.
>At the same time, your other hand is hitting her in the sternum with your weapon. You use the chance to blow her back with wind.
>You’re both blown back from each other, and you work to free your hand once you’re on your feet again.
>You smack it against the frozen ground, breaking some of it off, but it’s still stopping your wrist.
>You rip the sleeve off your jacket as you let go of your weapon in an attempt to remove the offending ice.
>It’s tight, but it works. Your wrist pops free of the sleeve and you grab your weapon before looking up.
>She’s already charging at you.
>You have just enough time to roll out of the way before standing.
>She doesn’t relent though, spinning and trying to take you out.
>Once again, you parry her attacks left, right and centre.
>Once again, she blocks and avoids yours.
>Something’s different though...
>Was she always wearing a vest?
>She WAS wearing a singlet before...
>Now her bra’s in full view.
>... Could be worse.
>The clash offers another chance for a blowback and you gladly take it.
>You aren’t used to long, drawn out encounters like that.
>Though from the looks of it, neither is she.
>You gulp down a few breaths of air and watch her.
>She, while panting, looks down to notice what you have. She grins before standing.
>She tosses aside her ripped former top and you remove your jacket, somewhat overheating in it during the fight.
>You’re now in your sweat-drenched tank top and she’s in a bra.
>... Scratch that.
>You’re in a tank top and she’s got paint on her tits.
>That’s the only explanation you can think of for her nipples to be that hard.
>It appears she’s discovered your weakness.
>”I can do that too.”
>You remove your top, exposing the solid muscle underneath.
>She stares appreciatively and hums in approval.
>But enough messing around. Fights and stuff.
>Even if you’re not really feeling like fighting.
>You and she both charge in to fight.
>Wow, this is so much easier than with the jacket on.
>You once again start with your clash against her.
>Except now you’re pushing her back.
>Bit by bit, you chip off more and more of her aura.
>”I think... I’m getting cold...”
>The momentary lapse in concentration forces you to look down.
>You barely glimpse her solid nipples as she smacks you in the knee with her nun-chucks, freezing it in place.
>You shove her back once more, attempting to find time to break the ice.
>Unfortunately, she doesn’t let up.
>You work hard, smacking away hits as if your life depended on it.
>She goes for another big swing, giving you a chance to blow her back.
>You succeed, but get blown back too.
>You struggle to right yourself, but she’s already up and walking toward you.
>”Tell you what, Anon. If you manage to beat me...” She cups her breasts enticingly.
>”You can... ‘play’ with me all you like. Give you something to REALLY enjoy.”
>The judge doesn’t seem to notice as Neon’s back is to him.
>You grin as your blood boils in your loins.
>”I’ll make you the same offer.” You smash the ice on your leg while waiting for an answer.
>”Hah! Why not! It’ll be our little wager. Make this more fun for both of us.”
>You take a deep breath, and steady yourself.
>”Final clash, right?”
>”You know it.”
>You both rush forward to attack.
>You swing big, knowing that she’s probably aiming for the same...
>... She’s not there.
>The world takes a bright blue hue, then begins fading out.
Some time later...
>You catapult awake in the changing room.
>Or you would, if you didn’t have someone sitting on top of you.
>”Whoa there, easy Anon. You just got your head un-freezed.”
>It’s crazy cat lady, sitting on your chest!
>”Neon? Guess you’ve come to collect your ‘winnings’ then?”
>”At least I was polite enough to wait ‘til you woke up.”
>”Seems you were still getting rather impatient.”
>You indicate the growing puddle on your chest, just under her skirt.
>She grinds into your chest harder.
>”What can I say? I’m more used to getting what I want right away.”
>You lie there, thinking.
>She’s washed her ‘bra’ off, so her breasts are free from their painted prison.
>You’re getting harder by the second, so you undo your pants and remove your dick.
>”Whoa, whoa, hey! What’re you doin’? This is MY time to play!”
>She leans back slightly and removes your hands from your shaft, placing them on her boobs.
>”Here. Play with these.”
>You do as you’re told. Moulding, pinching, rolling, everything in your repertoire.
>”Hey, you’re pretty good at this...”
>She glides forward on her river of excitement, landing her vagina on your chin and her thighs around your head.
>”Are you as good with your mouth?”
How much smut is allowed here?
>You remove a hand to strategically manoeuvre her miniskirt out of the way and notice she’s not wearing panties. Must have been really ready for this.
>She bucks her hips a couple times to hurry you up.
>Pale flesh gave way to a deep red substitute, and you begin your mission.
>You take a soft lick to see how she tastes.
>A vital step in oral.
>Nothing much, a bit sweet. Good enough for you.
>Removing your other hand, you grasp her sizable thighs and pull her down on to your mouth.
>She happily obliges, and sighs at your work.
>You drill your tongue at the entrance, pushing in slowly.
>She squirms on top of you. She wants to speed up.
>Tensing your tongue, you follow through, pushing as deep as you can into her folds.
>Her hands latch on to her tits as she fondles them hard.
>You feel a small hard point inside her and press your tongue against it.
>Rubbing against it like you were licking a lollipop, she grinds hard.
>Her breathing is getting ragged, and her voice is just starting to escape.
>You reach your arm over and rub just above her clit.
Someone asked for someone else to write it. I took up the mantle.
>Her constant grinding is making it difficult to keep your pace, but you carry on.
>Your other hand finds a nice place on her thighs, pressing into the soft, sensitive flesh in time with your licks.
>You feel her tensing up as you go, and her breathing is now grunting and moaning.
>It won’t be long now...
>You speed up ever so slightly, trying to keep a steady rhythm for her.
>The musk under her skirt is getting too much for you to maintain this for much longer.
>You’re starting to get lightheaded, but you persevere.
>She grips your head, her breasts now forgotten in her lust.
>Her muscles tense even tighter, clenching your tongue in their nearly painful grip.
>You press into her clit, rubbing it with your fingers.
>Her powerful legs lock around your head and a glass-shattering screech fills the room.
>The heat, the pressure, and the musk are all making you dizzy and darkness creeps into the corners of your eyes.
>Her vice-like thighs hold you in place for a good thirty seconds as thick, viscous liquid oozes into your mouth.
>You have to swallow hard to avoid her drowning you.
>After she comes down from her climax, she drops back on to your chest and stomach, panting.
>Her skirt finally lifts and her thighs release you from your prison.
>You gasp heavily for breath, body thankful for the oxygen it so desperately deserved.
>Both you and her stay there for a good few minutes, panting heavily.
>You don’t notice, but she’s seen your shaft and is eyeing it up, smiling somewhat.
>She prods the tip with her finger, watching it twitch back in response.
>She’s breathing pretty hard, but she manages to roll over to have her ass in your face while she pokes your dick again.
>”What? You want... another... round?” You say between breaths.
>”Haaaah... This is... supposed to be... a punishment... for you... losing... to me.”
>”Is that... a yes?”
>”That’s a... ‘get to it... while I have... some fun.’”
>”You... fucking... what... m-“
>She pushes her pelvis into your face to shut you up.
>”Back... to work...”
>She breathes a few deep breaths to calm herself down and you do the same.
>You start by lapping around her clit, moving one hand up to fiddle with her opening.
>She’s still sensitive from last time, so it’s not hard to get her riled up again.
>Within seconds, she’s soaked again.
>It’s at this point you feel something on your tip.
>Something warm and wet.
>Seems she’s returning the favour.
That wasn't the question.
The reason why most of these idiots only write fluff is because to have someone fight you have to give him personality. And since that's what they want they don't bother.
So why not post this on FF.net under the OC tag?
Looking through Montecore's twitter he seems to watch and enjoy RWBY, doesn't look like he cares.
I have RWBY to go off, not exactly stellar writing in that either.
>You feel her grip your shaft lightly as you continue.
>You suck a bit harder on her clit, causing her to freeze up for a second.
>Seems like she liked that.
>You give her another few experimental sucks, making her buck when you do it.
>She continues to make sure you get some love too, and takes a long suck on you.
>You find the little hard part in her vagina again, pushing up against it.
>Her clit hardens in response.
>So do you.
>You work hard, keeping a fast rhythm to keep up with her bucking.
>Once again, her musk is overpowering, but this time you can actually breathe.
>She moans around your dick as you hum into her clit, feeling yourself bucking slightly into her mouth as she does to yours.
>You feel her pressing into your face as she rests her weight on you.
>She rises so she’s riding your face again.
>You’re working hard, and she’s tensing up again.
>You rub your tongue against her clit and suck it at the same time.
>You push your fingers into her g-spot.
>The squeal turns into a harsh moan and she tenses around your fingers.
>You suck harder, almost feeling her clit swell in your mouth.
>You shut your eyes.
You're just jelly cuz you can't
I barely write, so there's no reason for me to have a FF account.
>Almost immediately, another ridiculous amount of natural lube squirts out of her, all over your face.
>You keep sucking and fingering until the orgasm finally dies down and she collapses on the floor next to you.
>Wiping some of her squirt off your face, you look over at her.
>”Heeyyy.” You call out. “Gonna... finish me off... or what?”
>She looks over. “This... is your punishment...”
>You groan in response.
>”Kinda... need a... top though...”
>She looks at your now one-sleeved jacket.
>”You’re gonna... return that... right?”
>She grins a tired grin at you.
>”We can... finish this... then... loverboy...”
>She gives you a kiss on the lips and a slow, gentle caress on your dick.
>”How’s... tonight... sound?”
>You nod as best you can under the circumstances.
>”I think... I can manage...”
>She seems eager to jump you now, but you gotta play the game.
>”There’s an... ‘if lost’ thing... on the inside...”
>She giggles a breathless laugh.
>”Dorky... but it works.”
>She goes to the door.
>”See ya tonight, Anon.”
>You wave her off and sit up, intent on un-blueballing yourself.
>You go to the showers.
I know it isn't great, but to that one guy who asked for it, enjoy.
No more suffering!
Only good vibes!
>I don't watch much anime?
Really? Well it's nice to know your inability to write and bad taste is an innate trait instead of one that is acquired.
RWBY has way too much relationship drama as it is and tragedy is simply the laziest way to try to make something more mature.
There are ways to up the stakes other than 'bad shit happens and you can't do shit about it.'
The first thing I thought of when they brought up putting two souls in one body was DBZ when Piccolo absorbed Nail. The absorbed soul is conscious for a short while until it just fades away into the body's owners soul.
That's... An interesting question.
Does her forbidden love towards other women make her an easy target for Slaaneshi cultists? Or is her denial so strong that it would block their influence? I genuinely don't know.
Not everyone's favorite Glock wielding, 2 liter killing granddad.
I am also scared
Did you really just.m reply to a four hour old post about a YouTube channel that's not even marginally related to RWBY?
People talk about off topic shit all the time but that is just fucking ridiculous.
/co/ is love
/co/ is life indeed
Still working on it. Fixed most of the problems by giving her a mentor that pretty much takes her role. I also plan on just having some of the prisoners escape instead of them taking full control.
Anons, give me a common theme/motif/naming scheme and I'll come up with a list of names that would fit RWBY OCs, maybe even cobble a team name.
Examples: Flags, historical figures, liquids...
I see, and nice job giving yourself a free plot hook.
It's /K/ related
Besides I just woke up not too long ago and missed it the first time
I'm from america I just have problems sleeping
Dude - this is going to sound fucking stupid. But I work as a 3rd shift manager so when I get home its sunny out.
Find yourself a sleep tape. The first one I found though a friends joking suggestion was the Jeff Bridges Sleeping Tapes. Get your phone/MP3 player, some nice relaxing earbuds or headphones and relax.
It really helped me get to sleep.
I think they are interesting as far as scifi goes, but I dont think they would ever be practical in real life if ever made.
Could be that, one time I had 2 liters of some energy drink and didn't sleep for something like 20 hours afterwards. Also I was burning up the entire time so I spent the time in literally just a pair of shorts in winter. Learned my lesson that day. And night. And day.
Hey anons i've been gone for a week what i miss?
Did any new fluff get written?
Ah shitty MS paint edits, is there anything they can't ruin
We got some Amber fluff, some VelvetxAnon written by yours truly, and probably some more.
Sure, go ahead. Want me to cap it?
Jobbing is part of eternal reoccurrence. Jobbing is a constant. It might be you or me. But someone is goin to job. It is a law of the eternal dialectic force of inconsistent variables of the universe in motion. She jobbed so you could live. Honor her sacrifice.
How does Coco cope with such a defeat? Stuff her face with chocolate and maraton her favorite tv-show? Or go shopping?
We got a good Yang/Soldier Fluff made a couple days ago
did that anon ever finish it?
>YFW Yang gets expelled from Beacon.
>Dat blue bit in her eye
Holy crap, attention to detail.
I'm still holding out for Yang blasts the police/guards and escapes. Becomes a wanted fugitive and goes out into the woods to keep the rest of team RWBY safe since they would be under questioning or something from authorities. During survival in the woods her Mom finds her and tells her more about the family past.
Rest of team RWBY is trying to prove her innocence at the same time but the tournament has to go on and Weiss is the obvious pick for the 1vs1 part of the final tournament or something.
5'3" I think. Pyrrha is 6'0". The height difference is exaggerated in that pic though.
Nora however is only 5'1". Pic related shows the height difference. Every time she hugs Pyrrha, she puts her face against her bosom.
Predictions for today's episode?
>Velvet's only asking about how Yang's doing out of fear of being the next to have her legs broken
>Episode ends with Yang cutting her hair
Blake has more than one line
Torchwick doesn't show up
Trust me anons dating a girl thats taller then you
is one of life's greatest pleasures
Well goodnight everyone I'm going to try and get some sleep
I think I know a few people who could help you with that.
Thank you very much, I had a great time writing it. Dishwasher's pic lit a nice creative spark for me.
Awesome here you go folks. Thanks again for the replies.
I think the other idea being tossed around was Amber taking control of Pyrrha and making her go after Jaune, I did a pair of fics on that idea too.
Here's part 1
Sorry for taking so long
Something went horribly wrong when the first thing that came into my mind when I read "Ma'at" was "Ma'at Selesnya". As difficult as it was, it did feel fun.
1: Team WHAT
Bastet (W)eave - Basket weave lmao
(H)eather Mason - Mason is a craftsman that works with stone (usually gray)
(A)mon Tillado - Amontillado is a kind of wine
Huda (T)hoth - Thoth is represented by the Ibis, a white bird,
Who would'a thought?
Team 2: MRSH (Marsh)
(M)att Selesnya - Selesnya is the White-Green guild of Ravnica
(R)aoh Matahari - Matahari is a malay word for sun
(S)eth Sahara - Sahara is a desert
(H)orus Hershey - Hershey is commonly associated with chocolate, Horus = Pharaoh = Gold/Yellow with stripes
Yes, there are some wordplay.
Given how sudden and mid-season the departure is, I doubt it. Something pretty significant must have occurred for their Lead Animator to up and leave before the season is over, it looks bad from a professional perspective whether he got fired or left either way.
If they don't even comment it, as if they are trying to sweep everything under the rug and pretend it never happened as a form of damage control, then I lose even more respect for the company and its people. It does suggest that Shane quit or was fired on bad terms. I wonder if his wife, Emerald's voice actress will leave too.
Thanks they were fun as hell to write.
That's a pretty cool play on words there, particularly Hershey. I don't think anyone's tried to use a chocolate colored naming convention aside from Coco
Agreed it definitely doesn't look good. So far RT has had good relations with people who left the company who were also doing VA work for them (Kara, Ray etc). About the only exception was the guy who originally voiced Mercury.
Still Shane worked really closely with Monty for a long time, I would like to think he wouldn't want to make production of RWBY more difficulty by forcing RT to find another VA to replace his wife.
Shane, the head animator and Monty's protege who worked with Monty since the Black trailer, just released a tweet yesterday saying that he'd left RT because "It didn't work out". Shane was one of the most promising animators for getting back to Monty's level, since he animated Pyrrha vs Mercury in volume 2, so it's a pretty major setback for the series
Wasnt he like Montys next in line guy?
The fuck is happening over there at RT? Did shane maybe want to take RWBY in a different direction (maybe more how Monty originally wanted it) then how RT in general wanted to take it?
Damn! Did not see the followup tweet from neath. That definitely does not paint it in a good light. Especially the way Kara and Ray reacted. This was probably a sudden and nasty split. Shame we'll probably never know what really happened short of scuttlebutt at RTX or something.
As Oobleck once said, "That's not good."
Go for it, maybe I'll add them into the pastebin. Also, Medjed is a funny god.
So, with Shane out of RWBY, how shit will the fights look now?
Considering all the good fights this volume (Except remnants of Monty's work) such as EM vs CY and Pyrrha during the JNPR vs BRNZ were done by Dillon, they'll probably look better when he starts doing more. Mercury vs Pyrrha looked good but I didn't see any of Shane's work in V3 reaching that level
beat me to it. While it's pretty bad that such a long time member left, especially so suddenly, the fact that Dillon Gu has done so much for the season already leaves me pretty confident that it won't make too big of an impact. Now if he or another senior animator suddenly leaves, then I'd be worried.
>RWBY was a show about fights with no plot
>Now that we have found the plot, the fights will cease
Watching RWBY is suffering
Also RT has money to throw around. Remember when Mercury VA quit they hired an actual professional VA to replace him.
They could probably find another animator of decent quality to replace him.
>RWBY with both plot and decent animation
True, I'd imagine they'd be able to bring someone on fairly easily, just a matter of bringing them up to speed on their tech and methods. This probably will also dictate what they use for animating next season. Supposedly this is the last season they're using Poser, but I can't 100% confirm that.
The later versions yes have a lot of toolsets for animation. The older version that Monty was glued to, not so much. It really was meant for simple animation and still poses in its earlier forms.

Non-dust flamethrower viable, Y/N?
I estimate around 10 or so minutes for the upload.
she doesn't have a hime cut, hime cut is cut in straight lines across, no pointed ends.
Perhaps the reason he left is the moving away from pointer as well. Who knows until announcement about it.
Also with RT's general reputation as a pretty good company to work for combined with the ability to pay someone well. I could easily see a replacement - mainly if they are looking at moving to new software (they could bring in someone already well learned in the new program to cross train the others)
>Perhaps the reason he left is the moving away from poser as well
But I'm pretty sure he said he was adept at other programs like Blender as well. Also, surely he'd still finish this volume at least even if that was the case?
If auras are basically Halo energy shields, then a flamethrower would tear through them in seconds
Probably what he was use to using. I know some local artists prefer using software packages that are outdated because they are better versed in it and also because of their settings are already set and they wont have to reset the settings to how they like them (if they updated)
So, how long until the grand revelation that Dust is in fact
Certainly could be, but as >>78825396
Said, leaving mid-season, regardless of whether he was really doing a whole lot, still looks bad professionally. It's like abandoning a project mid-way through. That's kind of what leads me to believe this was a hostile split.
As for Poser, others beat me to it, but yeah, Monty was just comfortable with the older version, he had all his settings and familiarity with that old version so they stuck with it since he was the main animator at the time.
Pushed back a day? I wonder when they decided that, Barbara tweeted about it being today last night
Well, because to me, dust is an energy source that dissipates while gas clings to you for extra damage. Not to mention how dust is pretty receptive to aura.
>Oh look, White Fang militia
>He has some kind of weapon based off a fire hose
>OH MY GOD IT BURNS WHY
>GET IT OFF
>So, how long until the grand revelation that Dust is in fact
Fair enough. I guess I should have said that it could be one of the factors that could of escalated things resulting in this result. As in, and this is all hypothetical, they announce they are using new software, he states that its now what Monty would of wanted or something, and the argument escalates from there to the point of him being fired or walking on his own terms.
Who knows, hopefully we hear something on the issue.
Are you ready to
taste Yang's delicious tears?
It's possible that he finished animating everything for this season. Not terribly likely, but I could see him having decided a while ago that he wanted to leave, and just waited until he had finished the major animation for the volume before doing so.
From him, with an NDA no, but I assume that RT would post something since he has already said something public about no longer working at the company.
Probably wont go into the issue though but it would give a good indication of if he was fired or left on his own, unless they are smart about it.
From my experience as someone in upper management there are usually key phrases used. "No longer works for the company" usually means fired while "left the company to do X, Y or pursue other endeavours" would also give a bit of insight - unless they just use a blanketed "person X is gone. We wish them well"
About fucking time too
Yang getting BTFO for being a hot head who would never think before acting
Erm, what? Yang just walked up to Merc and broke his leg, he didn't touch her hair or anything. What a hothead
Of what we have seen of the preview, it's actually the moment with Pyrrha and Jaune I want to see the most.
Arkos is something I both like and dislike. I like the idea, but dislike how it has been handled. I want to see whether the talk emotional talk between Pyrrha and Jaune will be a good or bad Arkos moment. I would prefer not to see any hints of romance. Just a friendly guy trying to comfort his team mate.
I'd probably just get kicked in the head, but I get what you're saying. The problem is Yang's reputation as a violent hothead is going to make her claim weaker. Ironically, the people who know her best would be (and seem to be) the people who accept she broke a dude's leg most easily.
Since Monty was a workaholic, he was probably stressed. Moving from one program to another would take months for him to master, and cost him precious animation time, especially when preparing a new volume of episodes.
Probably how Merc's recruitment went.
"So... mecha legs... Are you some kind of robot? And if so, what kind of powers do you have? Do you use them for good or for awesome? Would you like to join forces? I just happen to be the greatest criminal mind of all time."
Probably, wish I could have been a fly on the wall for that meeting with him leaving though, really curious what caused this departure.
Yeah I'd wager we're probably going to get a post from either Gray or M&K about this at some point if they do decide to talk about this at all. I'd imagine folks are going to be asking about what happens for this and future seasons and what will happen to Emerald's VA situation.
Then again if they completely ignore it and quietly bring someone else in to replace him that would probably give credence to the idea of the split being nasty, they'd want to say as little about it as possible to make the problem go away and prevent liability.
I'm here compadre. Having trouble with the conclusion, should be up after the initial burst of activity today
Less than a minute.

Gavin X Meg is sinking fast and I can't wait to see it in my lifetime!
Hoooooly fucking shit that episode was killer.
For some reason I feel like the writers are moving away from the Raven as a Maiden theory, if Qrow only just learned her whereabouts recently.
