This project started off with the simple idea of "Little Red Riding Hood" in space. These are early sketches that explored the idea of Red Riding Hood as an astronaut.
After establishing the idea of Riding Hood in space, the next step was to flesh out the main character. Red was too pudgy in the early sketches, then I thought this version wasn't fun enough. However, this sketch did retain many of the final elements that wento into Red later on. Her helmet, antenna, body, facial features, and glove size were all recognized here.
