So after talking to Alan about which idea would be better, I've decided to stick to Idea #2. This is the idea about the story from Indian Mythology where Krishna's mother, Yashodhara, gives him the moon by catching its reflection in a pot of water.
The setting is in a courtyard and there are a lot of plants there. There is a great style that I can adapt. I wanted to make the environment intricate like the patterns used to draw henna tattoos in. I also looked at the style of a few illustrations of Barefoot Books. The slightly raw, painted look to it reminded me of the tapestries that depict most of the Indian myths.
