      From the title, you can probably guess who the next guest on Quick Draw is going to be.

      So do I.

      Nope! It is indeed that talented young man from somewhere I don't know, Chris Demarais.

    • Monty Oum

      3 years ago

      Pat

      I write this, with a bit of heaviness,so I apologize for the sporadic nature.

      I only knew Monty for about two years. But in that time, we became very close. Many late nights at the studio spent talking about our ideas and dreams for the future. It feels very surreal writing this, knowing that was only a few months ago.

      We all pass, of course. Our time comes and we hope we've left something behind worth noting. But, for the world, it was far too soon for him. And of course, it hurts.

      He was and is well loved by people from all around the globe. A constant inspiration for this and generations to come. That's what I'm trying to hold on to. That, even though he may be gone, his creative legacy and passion will always live on.

      It's hard to say goodbye to a good friend.

      When I first came to the studio, nobody really knew I was going to work on RWBY until I was brought in one morning. It came as a bit of a rude shock to some people, but Monty seemed more excited than anything else. He quickly led me to the concept board he had built up, and eagerly revealed the concept art by our other artist, Eileen. His dreams made into physical imagery, I could see and hear how passionate he was about everything.

      I remember a little after I first met him, I stood behind him and proclaimed, "We're gonna be friends." He replied with a confused and surprised "What?". I rushed over, nearly knocking him over, and hugged him tight so he couldn't let go. He had no choice at that point. That was it.

      Then, when Monty first started talking to Sheena, he would always try to look his best for her, even over video chat. If he knew she was going to see him, he put on his best to impress her. He was so nervous. We'd be out in the parking lot of the studio at 3 am talking about her. I did my best to give the relationship advice I could, and he'd listen. Thank goodness for that, because he was a wreck when in love. Though he tried his best not to show it.

      Believing in something is hard for me, but I know one thing is true, according to science. Energy cannot be created nor destroyed, it simply continues on from one form to another. So, even though our friend is gone, he will always be moving in some way through the universe. Forever inspiring. Forever with us.
      Monty, you are, always have been, and always will be, my friend. And it's been a privilege and an honor working with you.

      And we love you so very much.

      So long, you talented bastard.

      -Patrick M. Rodriguez

    • JeremyJasonA FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold That Content Creator Guy

      2 years ago

      Hey man! I've been a RoosterTeeth junkie and sponsor since Season 3 of RvB, but Quick Draw has been the only show to truly inspire me! I run a marketing company (in which I do NONE of the artwork) and along with that brings a LOT of stress. I used to draw when I was younger. Actually, I was obsessed with all aspects of art and didn't realized I was terrible at it until I reached my freshman year at Savannah College of Art & Design. I looked around and saw that everyone was MUCH better than me and decided that if I couldn't create excellent art then I would manage people that could. I have developed my company over the last few years, but recently I got hooked on your show. Based on the raw structures you show at the beginning of each episode, I started drawing again and found that even though it makes me rip my hair out when I can't get a line or shading just right, the overall practice just soothes all the stress I felt that day from managing my business. I am hoping that by seeing what you do and motivating myself to push forward to better & better work, I can use my downtime to develop a skill that is beyond what I even thought I had. I don't know if you have already done this, but it would be AMAZING to see you with your own YouTube channel where you teach people like me how to do what you do. It is an absolutely mesmerizing skill and I believe that leaving your legacy through a "How-To" type of channel could inspire generations to come about the importance of this kind of art. Anyway, sorry to be so long winded, I just wanted you to understand the kind of inspiration and breath of fresh air you have been to one of the people you have entertained with Quick Draw. I am sure that many viewers feel a similar inspiration.


      P.S.

      I am actually re-watching the episode you did with egoraptor at RTX14 as I type this. You told the story of how you started Quick Draw. I am SO glad you had the courage to present the idea for this show to Matt. Your boldness in that decision has changed my life.

      Hey, Pat, I just wanted to say I completely love your art style. It's really nice and I really enjoy how crisp it is. Your use of colour is really dang cool, like, the way you coloured the Blaine Quick Draw was really stunning. Like, not only in your application, but also just how you choose the colours and make it work and aaaaaaaaa It's always fascinating to see how other artists utilise the same tools that I use to get different and great effects.

      Anyway, thanks for Quick Draw. I like to put it on and listen while I'm working on my illustration homework, but I inevitably just end up watching the video. Oops. But thanks!!! smiley0.gif

      Hey Pat, Just wondering if there was a job description available for the Production Artist Job available. I couldn't find one on the website just a list of what to submit along with your application. I would like to know what the job entails so that I do not waste anyone's time applying for a job I am not right for. Thanks.

      Good day to you sir!
      I unfortunately do not have the ability to pay for sponsorship just yet, so I do not know if you covered this in one of your quick draw videos, but my question is: what program do you use for your drawings? What one(s) would you recommend that err on the side of free?
      I have been a long time, old school style of drawer (paper and pencil) so it's taking me a bit to adjust to this new medium.
      I appreciate any feedback, but no worries if you don't get to this. :)
      I hope you have a wonderful day!

      • artduck QUACK

        I don't want to speak for anyone but, I'm pretty sure that Pat uses Photoshop for work, but Paint Tool SAI is a really good program that you can find out there for free. Hope this helps.

        Thanks! Well, the tablet I use at work is a Wacom Cintiq, but that's more of a studio type of tablet. However! The one I used before this was a Monoprice tablet. It was pretty awesome and pretty cheap too! I'd definitely recommend it as a starter tablet. www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=108&cp_id=10...

      Hey Pat! I know I am VERY far behind in the whole Sponsor Cast: Comics. But the reason for killing Wolverine is kind of brilliant (story telling wise.)

      Basically, it is for the purpose of "What happens when Wolverine isn't around." They no longer have the all immortal dude, nor do they have the leader of the "Good" X-men group...

      I could go into more detail if you're interested, but his death is a marker on how the Marvel Universe will react while he is gone. What the rest of the Xmen will do without their leader (Since Cyclops is currently a villain), and who will become a more central character to take his place.

      Again, I could go into waaay more detail, but only if you're interested. if not, its cool. Love the Quick Draws and enjoyed this Sponsor Cast. Keep Doin' what you're doin'

      Hey Pat. I wanted to say that your artwork is fantastic and filled with personality. I started to understand what it is about artist and their work that gives a deep meaning to it. I have already done a few artworks myself with limited resources and they came out good in my eyes. I may not be the best at drawing like some of the people in the community, but I am proud of what I do. I don't mind if you check them out sometime, but I just wanted to mention how I feel about the work you do. Keep it up Pat!

I have what's known as a "white man's afro", and I'm having some real trouble drawing myself in a way that doesn't make me look like a moron. I've always loved your art, and I was wondering how you would draw a dude with my hair situation?
