The Dead Dancing Warrior: Shigai Odori by GalaxyGuild The Dead Dancing Warrior: Shigai Odori by GalaxyGuild
Just thought I would update an old touhou Oc drawing from a while ago. This is old too, but I wanted to upload it.

Name: Shigai Odori/踊り死骸 (in japanese, his name is written with his first name in front)

Title: The Dead Boy Dancing at the Gate

Species: Jiang-Shi (at one point, a human who lived in China)

Theme: Untamed Stiff Gate Keeper

Abilities: Jumping through the earth and throwing kunai from out of nowhere.

Age: ???

Occupation: Gate Keeper

Loctation: Storm Palace

At one point in Odori's life (not afterlife) he was a young man growing up in a different region in the west. However due to unfortunate events, he died and was buried and that was that. However his soul never left his body. He was trapped in the coffin without help for a very long time. By the time Ophelia/Saigaka found him, his mind was completely empty. Almost all memories of his previous life were gone. Ophelia/Saigaka used a rigorous spell along with Mako (the doll who took on conscience) and Hanashi (the half breed kasha/bakeneko) to bring Odori out of the Coffin and revive his body. He has been by Ophelia/Saigaka's side ever since.

Currently, he works as the gate keeper for Arashiko's storm palace, where he spends his free time training and dnacing in the forest with Anastasia or Hanashi. However, his feelings are only for Saigaka alone. Although being dead all this time has made him forget how to show his love to her.

He first appears in my fangame Touhou: Never Ending Twilight, as a second stage boss, and later becomes a playable character choice in Touhou: Oni Extermination.

His stage theme (Forgotten Memory) starts off slow, kind of like trying to remember something, but then escalates to something fast and upbeat as soon as Odori appears on Stage as the mid boss throwing kunai all over the place.

I hope you all like him. I know there are people out there who don't really care for male touhou OCs, but I am certainly not one of those people.

First of all, this image needs to be colored. You yourself said that he has dark greenish blue hair but everytime I look at a picture of him I see him having orange or blonde hair ( like Shikaig Iromu. )
His right thumb looks kind of off and it is strangely shaped, and his left arm is sort of curving in a impossible sort of way, and his right arm is too long. Neither one of his arms are the same length...
You still have got to improve on his figure, first of all he looks, er, like a girl, because of the way the arms are drawn, as well as his figure, there is a visible inward curve at the waist, as well as his hair, makes him look exactly like the female odori IMO.
You could do better, I hope you can use this to improve on your future artworks. :iconjarateplz:

I wonder what TF2 class is he. From the looks he is kinda Scout.

Probably Scout, he is pretty fast.

This works: especially if he's a boss in a game, and especially if he's just a stage 2 boss. I would like to know a bit more about his personality, but it looks like you've got a great start on making an original Touhou OC.

Odori: WAIT! I wasn't trying any funny business. I only have feelings for one girl, so you don' have to think I will be perverted.
