    What happeened to massive black, the art department video tutorials?

    As the title says. What did happen to huge tutorial library on TAD and Massive Black sites?

    I recently remembered to go on those sites (after around two years) and see if there are some new artists and new videos and to my surprise instead of new videos there are no videos at all.

    To name a few artist Jason Chan, Brad Rigney, With Bracha, Zhang Lu.

    So what happened to those videos? And if someone know the reason why they were put down.

    Copyright issues. They're impossible to find them through legitimate channels, but rest assured, they still exist.

    There are no copyright issues. Please do not spread information that is not factual as that is what causes all the drama over time.

    john English, TAD's ceo, refuses to sell any videos unrelated to the TAD faculty, and is primarily focused on promoting his friends who are a part of his illustration academy, despite my protests. He is the only person who controls TAD operations and I can't make him sell them, even if it is good for the art world and TAD and the artists to do so. He didn't pay the artists on time, so it is probably for the best anyway.

    It's quite depressing to hear that...I've been looking for Zhang Lu's portrait videos recently but I couldn't find any way to buy them . I know it's been a very long time, probably 4 or 5 years since it released but I want to purchase it very bad. It would be great if you guys can put it back to stock somewhere so I and maybe other artists can have a chance to obtain these great videos.

    Hey Jason, my Problem is, that i purchased the workshops on "The female form" by zhang lu and the workshop on "mood and emotion" on demand.
    Now they have been taken down, so i have no longer acces. Since there was no possibility to download the videos after purchase but only watching them online on demand, I'd like to get acces to these videos again...
