IndexWallpapersOkami › Zodiac: Tiger

Happy New Year! Today marks the start of the year of the Tiger, so how about a new Okami wall featuring a tiger?
Although, seeing as how Japan celebrates according to the solar calendar, I guess this wall is 2.5 months late. Oh well, I'm Chinese so I will go by the lunar calendar in this respect ;)
Just another watercolor/Ukiyo-e styled Okami wallpaper. I grabbed a number of watercolor textures from Bittbox and Sad Monkey Designs to color and texture everything this time around. Wispy cloud designs were traced off a separate Okami scan. No painting -- I retired my old desktop when I moved to Japan, so I lost my Painter program and haven't gotten around to replacing it yet.
Apparently the tiger god in this game represents thunder. Thus, the dark cloud. I find this interesting in that thunder is represented by a bow and arrow, whereas in Western mythologies associate thunder with a spear or hammer.
Framed in the same style as my previous Zodiac wallpaper, Ox, so they match. I guess at this rate it will be 10 more years before I finish this wallpaper series!
