This character design brief involved developing a universe of people, anthropomorphic animals and celestial beings that distinctly belonged to Sikkimese lore. The story involves a moody Sun who decides to hibernate, leaving the agrarian community of the hills of Sikkim at a bit of a loose end. The people and animals do their best to part the dense cloud blanket that enshrouds the snoozing Sun.
 
The key was to derive from the flavoured Sikkimese visual culture and create a set of characters that belonged exclusively to the Himalayas.
