Haha, I used this picture for everything, from newsbox to 10,000 hits to title page! It's not because I really like this pic or anything (I do) but because, when I first started promoting Soccer is Full of Cheese, I was too lazy to draw 'art' images in addition to comic pages. This was the only one I whipped up that looked presentable, and I didn't want to do any more so I just used it for everything, haha!
Anyway, I think Scotty looks all sweet and nice in this one. I like his shoes and bag. And I did reference something, but I forgot from where. Probably a model from some Asian magazine.
