Sad news - concept artist Roma Jeanne has passed. :(
For any of you who knew or worked with Romarick (Roma) Jeanne, his family has passed along word that last night, Nov 2nd, Roma passed away suddenly. I have no further details, but I wanted to alert any of you who knew or worked with this talented and lovable guy. For those unfamiliar with his name but know his work it can be found at www.creativicious.com
If any of you have details to add, please insure they are verified, coming directly from his family.
Yes Dizo, he didn't post much, but his user name is creativicious. Despite not pimping himself out excessively, Roma was extremely talented and diverse and managed to find work based on his skill alone, having worked with many people in the Dallas and CA areas in the game and film industries. It was a long time desire of his to work with ILM, and he made that happen before the end.
I met Roma a few years back when he was just getting started in the industry. His raw talent and humble attitude were an inspiration for me then, Just as his art continues to inspire me and my work in the future.
This is such sad news, I remember seeing his work here and I think on CG also, he's an amazing artist with flow and a since of ease even in his quick sketches. So sorry for his family, friends and the loss of Roma.
I remember working with Roma when we were working side by side at Ritual Entertainment, I've been very fortunate to work with this talented guy. Roma taught me so much and I value the time that we have worked together. Thanks for taking me under your wing Roma and being apart of my life as well as inspiring it. I'm so happy that you got your chance to work at ILM. For a couple of days now I've been meaning to get in touch with you and I've been thinking about you and I never thought I get in touch with you now like this...My deepest condolences to your family. I will miss you surely.
