Nice Paper Toys

The Papertoy Network!

Hi folks! I'm looking for some art reference material for illustrations of curved shiny surfaces like plastic and metal. I'm trying to get my coloring and shading techniques to the next level. Any suggestions? I work in Illustrator so vector style imagery would be most relevant but I appreciate any links to cool art.
