The red skin and white hair is more like a traditional oni (or tengu maybe?) but the client might not like the colours being similar to those used in the previous Samurai design. It makes sense though, because the face mask on the samurai armour is supposed to look like the face of an oni.
Anyway, the board this is being printed on hasn't even been manufactured yet, so it will be a while before you see this horrible visage on the streets. Looking forward to getting my greasy hands on the finished versions of the first series I did – the client has promised me physical samples of each deck! I will have to man up and get some trucks and wheels etc. and try one of the really intimidating longboards.
