I'm wondering if there's a gallery where i might find pictures of humans with the right angle and pose i'd want in order to use them as reference.

Just got my hands on my very first 3D modeling software (3DS max 2011). Seems i suck at using primitives in creative ways, but poly-modeling was easy enough. I made a pretty basic human model using a sketch as reference, now i want to do something more high-detail but i'm having trouble finding decent images to model after.

Thanks in advance.

Edit: i did check the sticky, but most links are either dead or they link to places where you have to pay.

Here are some free ones. Of course these won't be as well prepared for 3D modeling as the resources you can get from a commercial service like 3d.sk. You may need to do some image editing, like removing perspective distortion, on these.

Thanks guys.
I've worked on a model since i posted this, without using anything for reference and just going with my relatively meager knowledge of the human shape. The Body actually turned out really nice, though i haven't shaped the hands, toes or collarbones properly yet. Gonna try to get a slightly "bony" look on the ribcage as well.
