Hey I need a step by step tutorial or book on how to model a characters body, preferably a human one.

Have found no book for Lightwave on this, except the v9 one which doesn't really cover it that well and only does a cartoon one.

Same thing for tutorials, cannot find any step by step for noob ones.

Can anyone help? Thanks.

Here's a great box modeling series by Glen Southern. It's a Minotaur but the concepts are all there. This one is done in Silo.

I've taken many of these - all of the above and many others. The best one I've found and the very best instructor I've heard - http://www.blender3d.org/e-shop/product_info_n.php?products_id=133

This lady is excellent and it is for Blender, BUT you can easily translate it to Lightwave. I did and am incredibly happy with what I learned.
