Where can I find free or paid Human Reference for my 2D / 3D Art?

Pay Sites:

www.3d.sk
Hundreds of downloadable images - hi-res, orthographic + perspective / natural poses. Sign up a month at a time, and in any given month, download as much reference as you can possibly store. Search from a database of images according to age, race, clothed / unclothed, and an number of other categories. Highly recommended for 3D Artists especially.

www.female-anatomy-for-artist.com/
Another site run by the folks of 3d.sk dedicated to female reference photos.

www.human-anatomy-for-artist.com/
Another site run by the folks of 3d.sk dedicated to anatomy reference photos.

Free Sites:

www.characterdesigns.com > Photosets
Free sets of tasteful nude and clothed models free for use as Reference by 2D / 3D Artists. Images are royalty free / uncopyrighted.
