Sure, especially since R* didn't think of such a character for like next six years!

The most interesting thing is that he is never seen in the game, yet his artwork is recurring in further GTA games on several occasions. Makes me wonder: who this guy was originally supposed to be?

Probably it's the early version of Toni, or maybe even Machowski.
Artworks started to look as accurate as in the real gameplay in IV, they looked far different in III Era.

Well, SA artworks were already getting close on many occasions (yes, Sweet, Kendl and The Truth looked very different)... But still, yes, not as close as GTA IV's

Indeed...
...A good example for the III Artowork is Misty...

The only artowork of GTA III that is very close to the gameplay-like and easy to recognise person in the artwork would definitely be 8-Ball, IMO.

And in GTA IV, they really looked into Detail, even with weapons, vehicles, and even places.
This is an example.

Don't forget Asuka and Kenji - their faces were similar, at the very least.

Kenji too, but not Asuka, pretty hard to recognise her.
Anyway, artworks looked very accurate in VC, even more than SA, but not as accurate as IV... Or V.

Well, maybe except for Lance Vance and Sonny Forelli... I had a hard time recognising Sonny, to begin with... Lance - he is more cool in the game than he is on his artwork.

Mercedes too, well, her head is easy to recognise but not her clothes.

I wondered who that guy was as well. I love how cartoonish/comic-book like the GTA III character art looks.

I saw this mafia guy in GTA VC as a shooting target and I thought he was Salvatore or Toni. Turns out I was wrong after going to look at R* site.

Whereabouts is that?

Vice City: Poses as a shooting target during 'The Shootist' Rounds 2 and 3; also appears at a pane of Rockster Games Store in Ocean Beach (just across the road from Pole Position).

San Andreas: Appears on the 'Jack of Clubs' playing card (during Blackjack).

I can be wrong, but I also seem to have seen him somewhere in LCS.

Now that you mention it, I am sure he is in LCS. I will have to play the whole game again just to find him When I can be bothered
