College Project - T-Rex Internet Safety Character

So for my latest college project, I have to design a childfriendly character that promotes internet safety. I have chosen to do a T-Rex style character and I am thinking of making it by doing a two part plaster of Paris mould (which will mean I will have to do the legs separately) and casting in silicone rubber. This will give the puppet a rubbery, cartoony texture hopefully. I plan on sculpting in Newplast plasticine, with a WED supporting wall (came in the post today) and the armature will be made with aluminium wire. I have attempted a two part mould once and was actually surprised at the way it turned out, although one half was pretty bad, due to the consistency of the plaster. Any tips would be very much appreciated as I have till June as my deadline. I was thinking of doing a buildup version simultaneously, incase the mould fails.My design drawings are in the attatchments.See More

Showreel - looking for critique, comments, advice, etc.

For the past few years I've been focusing more and more on building my YouTube page and I figured I was long overdue on making a showreel for myself.I'd love to hear any comments, critiques, thoughts or even simple observations you may have.Eventually, I'd love to move on from Barbie (her movement limitations are a constant hinderance), but, for now, it seems to be what my fan base wants.https://youtu.be/waulxf1jJugSee More
