RegularJOE and I had a good conversation about a companion piece for our LRRH short film. And guess what - it's gonna be a "hands on" record!

We want to create cut-out paper character puppets, plus clothing, props, & scenery for the Little Red Riding Hood world.

This is for print, so everything should be at high resolution at and scale.

Here's the format you should use: Set up a photoshop file that is 8" x 8" and 300 dpi. Turn the rulers on, and scale your artwork accordingly. Then upload a high-res, flattened JPG here.

First we'll want to establish the main characters in 1-3 poses each, and then from there we'll want to make changes of clothes, props, and other scenery (e.g. trees, etc.)

Here's a reference of the format we're looking for:
