Well the contest didn't say you HAD to make Okami, but I made my own Okami Character. Plus it is originality, after looking through the many entries all they have is Okami and well no Original Characters, I hope I win since I thought of being original.
I don't have watercolors or a Digital Program so I can't use Okami's exact style, so I tried a Traditional style, but the best I can.
The white tiger is Kooaqua: The Lightning Tiger of the Clouds. You see the Lightning-patterned stripes, they are also Aqua-colored for the clouds. The Lightning is radianting off his arms, like Okami has cloud-like fur.
The setting is on top of the clouds and the you can see the mountains and the setting sun, plus the paintbrush for the clouds.
