This piece was done as a tribute to animator and writer, Monty Oum. Monty was primarily known for his work on Haloid, Red VS Blue and being the creator of the extremely popular animated series RWBY. Monty suffered a severe allergic reaction during a routine medical procedure that rendered him comatose. He passed away shortly after on January 22, 2015.

Monty Oum was someone to whom I looked up to and inspired me deeply as a creator of my own comic series.

This piece pays tribute to the work that I admired so much; the character featured is Lie Ren from RWBY and is also the character whom Monty himself voiced. The words 'Keep Moving Forward' were Monty's personal mantra and are written in lotus petals, the flower of which is the emblem of Lie Ren.
