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

For a little over a year now, I've been making short and fun Barbie videos on YouTube and I've grown a decent following. My problem is that I'm ready to move on and make better animations and, while I don't want to lose my fan base, Barbie dolls aren't articulated or sturdy enough to show my full talent.I've dismantled many figures and recreated their limbs with twisted wire and foam, but that only works when they're wearing long sleeves and pants (something Barbie rarely does).What I need is a…See More
