Not to be an *** or anything, but how did you get the job if you don't know how to model and texture a character? :\

If you are going to be modeling and/or animating professionally I highly recommend that you think very hard about buying a commercial training program. In the mean time, Scott Cameron's web site the xchrisx listed will help out. Plus below is some other links to check out.
Have fun and good luck.
