    Major TAD Entertainment 2D update: LEAGUE OF LEGENDS, Brilliant Colors and More!

    It is about time I share with you some of the student and professional work from TAD's entertainment 2d Department, and the professional work my students have been doing for Brilliant Colors.

    The following work comes from TAD students who are in their third and fourth semesters in our program (essentially their sophomore year if comparing to the big art schools out there). I am beyond proud of what is being achieved as approximately half of my students last semester were already beginning to work professionally on projects for the NBA, Riot Games and its number one MMO in the world (League of Legends) and more, all courtesy of the contracts they were awarded from Brilliant Colors as well as their own freelance efforts.

    We are teaching the TADsters how to do more than just get the work, get jobs, and get paid. We are teaching them to be entrepreneurs, masters of their own fate, and creators of their independence. That is one of the biggest reasons we have created the www.greenlightsummit.com event that is upcoming and available to all TAD students as part of their tuition and the program. It is not enough to simply have a job nowadays. One must be able to work on client work, and create their own intellectual properties which gives a chance at real success.

    TAD is not going to stop until it is known as the finest art school, and entertainment art program in the field. Here is a sample of the kind of work and opportunities that have been created in my department. I have never seen results like this, so fast, in my entire career. I am very proud of what the students are doing and am very honored to be a part of this journey.

    It is a total honor and a pleasure to share this work with you, from the student and now already pro artists like David Kegg, Duc Truong, Alex Konstad, Kirsten Zirngibl, Jon Neimeister, Paul Bradley, Mathias Kollros and more! Thanks to Randis and Dirty Iron for their assistance in Art Directing on the Brilliant Colors work, and to Will Keetell for his producer cat herding awesomeness, and to the TAD faculty for help raising these talented folks up...and last but not least, to Brilliant Colors VP Brooke Quarles for making sure everyone gets paid on the pro work!

    If you have not played League of Legends it is Free to play and has taken over World of Warcraft as the biggest MMO on the planet. Much love to Riot Games too!


    Please, enjoy!

    That's a honor working with you guys, especially the professionalism and cool advice from AD Randis Albion and Producer Will Keetell, also the everyday feedback and jokes from team.

    And still, what Jason show here is just a small part of all.

    I'm wondering, why do they work with up to 5 people on one of the flash art pieces?

    Each situation is different. We run a very team and teamwork centered program at TAD and Brilliant Colors. When artists work together they learn more quickly, grow in leaps, and pick up on how each other solve problems. Other times it may just be that one was free when the feedback came in or had the solution that made the client happy. I encourage methods that have artists working together instead of holed away. It makes production and the team feel a lot more cohesive too and builds strong creative bonds.

    I have learned a lot of lessons building and running production teams over the years and now prefer teamwork to the individual rock star mentality that eventually hampers morale and stagnates learning. Some of this has carried over from my early days at Black Isle Studios. There were pieces that I worked on, that Justin Sweet then had a hand in, that Kevin Llewellyn had a hand in, then Andrew Jones had his hands in...it is how we worked out issues we could not solve as easily if it were just any of us by ourselves.
