Picture Book – Nepalese Children’s Song

I was recently approached by someone who wanted to make an illustrated book for his family based off of a traditional Nepalese children’s song. His family is from Nepal, and he was looking for a book that would not only incorporate imagery to illustrate the song, but also include his son, who is incredibly adorable and the main character of this project. So, I started out with preliminary sketches (see a few below). The text that I am illustrating is in Nepali, I language I definitely don’t know, so I was given a rough translation of what I would be illustrating and some guidance on cultural specifications.

The images represent each different verse of the song. Here’s just a few:
