Well, you might take a look at the pdb-server at http://www.pdb.bnl.gov
beside 3D-structure-files, the pdb provides images of the proteins in
gif-format.

I don't know wether the resolution is big enough for your needs, but it
is a start.

There is also a server in Switzerland, where you can get images of
proteins, unfortunately I have forgotten the URL. You may start your
search from the Rasmol-Homepage at http://www.umass.edu/microbio/rasmol/
.

If nothing helps, you can download one of the Molecule Viewers (Rasmol,
Molmol, SwissPDBViewer, WebLabViewer, Chime) and generate the images by
yourself.
