The scary painting is a painting that can be bought from Crazy Redd in the Animal Crossing series, and is known in the real world as Actor Otani Oniji III as the Yakko Edobei. It is a rather terrifying Japanese print by the mysterious Sharaku, a Japanese artist. Little is known of him: he was active for only around ten months in 1794 and 1795, and may even be a group of artists that used the name 'Sharaku'- this word is a shortened version of the word sharakusai, meaning 'nonsense' in Japanese.
Sharaku did not become popular until the twentieth-century. Pieces by him are now considered to be some of the best examples of Japanese woodblock art. The painting depicts a Kabuki actor supposedly during a performance. The painting is on display in the Tokyo National Museum.
