Question Reference images for female patch model?


I'm quite new with Maya though having some experience in 3D using Max.
Recently I started a nurbs patch model of a human head. I got the front en side images of a head from a tutorial that already had the patch outlines drawn in them.
I was very impressed with the ease to get it to look so realistic. Especially since it was my first attempt.

However,... I want to proceed modelling the body and give it some cloths later on. So I tried to find some reference images for the body; a front, rear and side view of a human body (female). But didn't find any tutorials on patch modelling a human body. Tons of head nurbs modelling tutorials, but the body tutorials I found were all polygon modelling. So no tips on the curve network.
Is nurbs not suitable for modelling a body or simply nobody bothered to put such tutorial online?

Does anybody know where I can find these reference images of a human body with patch outlines? Preferably female since the head is female.
