Jama Jurabaev is a very talented artist here on ConceptArt.Org who has been learning in the community and working very hard to become a top environment artist. Jama is from Dushanbe, Tajikistan and TAD is going to be helping him to develop his character, creature, and intellectual property development skills, and reach into new genres. He has an excellent understanding of science fiction, environment composition, and is of stellar talent in these areas. Being a top entertainment design artist means more than that though, one must master all genre, all areas of character, creature, environment, matte painting, and world development. We are very fortunate at TAD to have such a highly talented artist as Jama joining us for this 30 month program.
Congratulations Jama. We are going to push you very hard. We expect to see you become one of the very best. We have no doubt you will take advantage of this opportunity to focus on your character, and creature development work, as well as narrative and unique personal point of view. All of this will be key to your future success. Striving for excellence in the figure and character work is going to be a huge challenge, and we have no doubt you are up for it.
Welcome to TAD. The best art students on earth are joining us. It is going to be one amazing school year. The entertainment design program has many students who could get jobs doing parts of production in games or film now. TAD is not here to make production wrists. TAD is here to help entertainment designers become world builders...the whole thing...not just parts. They will learn to tell stories, to design, to create universes that appeal to their own tastes and vision, and to the global entertainment market. Think of it this way...would you rather be penciler number 7 at some comic company or the Mike Mignola/Frank Miller type. The latter have had the freedom to create, they have had fame, and have had more than just a job to pay the bills. There is a difference. TAD teaches that difference.
and a few smaller ones just because they are excellent!
