Artists get ideas from people in the real world. They do it all the time.
The other day I was sitting my car at a stop light and a man walked across the street in front of me. He had no chin, a giant nose, a skinny neck, and a comb over. He was drowning in his sweat shirt and had this way of walking that reminded me of a pigeon.
It was awesome.
Since I was driving I couldn't pull out my sketchbook right then, but I logged him away in my brain for ... something later on.
Yesterday I drew him at the movies.
