It depends a great deal on the reference.
In any case ~ he's still blonde, blue-eyed and likely meant to appear Japanese (or perhaps caucasian) with a bronze tan. For the most part I've tried to keep characters who seem to be darker only on account of summer/sports tans in the lighter category (unless they're ~really~ dark).
