Random extra art 'cause why not? XD

I very recently finally sat down and watched RWBY. Needless to say, I enjoyed it (otherwise, why would I be crossing it over with Rain?) As my wife put it, "it's a little bit of a trope fest," but it still manages to be fun to watch, with an overall likable cast.

And yes, I did consider including more of the Rain cast dressed as more of the cast of RWBY. There are certainly enough characters that I COULD probably get everyone. But between that being so many people to draw, and the fact that I was getting really stopped up on who would be who (just one of many examples: is Emily more of a Yang because of her appearance, or more of a Weiss because of her personality?), I decided to keep it simple. If perhaps a little obvious. XD

Rudy's appearance here as Ruby (as Ruby) was too perfect not to use. I decided I wanted some banter with Gavin in there (who is dressed as Jaune), to really make this fun. I'm pretty happy with the results overall.

Maybe someday when I'm not drowning in other tasks I need to do, there will be a full-size crossover (just put it on the list of things to crossover with Rain someday). Or at the very least, something of a more strict RWBY fanart (since I'm still itching to draw my favorite character).

Monty Oum, one fo the animation designers also made a little known series called "Dead Fantasy" involving various Final Fantasy and Dead or Alive characters fighting. If you like a good cat-fight you should check them out. He was quite the master animator and he will be missed.

I've seen Monty's other works. I'm new to watching RWBY, but I've been familiar with his earlier work for quite some time.

I... I hate to be the one to say it... Monty actually passed away, I think early this year. So, yeah. Unless he pulls a Baron Samedi, I don't think we're getting any more out of him.

I'm aware. News of his passing hit me especially hard as it was released just days before my surgery, giving me nothing but anxiety going in. His work and input will be missed, but I'm sure his series will live on and go strong. His team seems committed to making it work to keep his dream alive, and I believe in them.

Any chance you could provide a link to this Monty persons work I'm interested in checking out both RWBY and Dead Fantasy.

RWBY can be viewed in a series of short episodes online right here. It's also on Netflix, presented at two full-length movies. I believe it's also on DVD.

Dead Fantasy can be found here.

It should also be mentioned that he did "Haloid" as a crossover between Metroid and Halo. It can be found here

Emily is totally a Yang, her school persona has a bit of Weiss to it, but outside of that she is warm and defends her friends.

Also, I could see her beating up 100 suited thugs with her fists.

No way, Maria is Yang way more than Emily is.

I'd say that would be the match up as far as personality/character relationship goes

I kind of want to see how Holly would be as either Weiss or Yang.

The crossover we'd all been waiting for!
the Rudy as Ruby bit is great punnery, but I think Gavin as Jaune might fit be a better character fit.
