Yes they do I love references. I have a whole folder of probably100+ stock photos and plus a whole bunch of books. I like the top standing one the best he reminds me of Jack Sparrow in the 3rd Pirates movie "Nobody move!!...I dropped me brain..."
Yeah the third movie is pretty good but I think I like the second one the best. That was the funniest one XD can't animate just yet haven't taken any real animation classes yet. I'm hoping I'll be able to next quarter though but when I do learn you can count I'll be animating like crazy XD
