Default Ref Images HELP!!!

Hi guys

I am relatively new to maya and now a very good 2d artist and I need help. I have done a few of the SM tutorials and now want to do a project on my own to see what my own workflow is like. I want to know if anybody would be willing or knows anybody who would be willing to draw a front and side view for ref images of Judge Dredd. As I am absolutley rubbish at art. My main area of interest in Maya is animation and would like to try and model, rig texture and then animate Judge Dredd. Any help on this would be great.

Thanks

Junkie

If your a good 2d artist, whats wrong with drawing your own and scanning them in?

I think if you have alot of 2000ad comics then your refernces are there for the actual character, all you need is a good proportion human character or photo to build upon, for which I would suggest heading over to www.fineart.sk
