Hey, aljoker. Since you don't mention the software you are using I would assume you can go through a general-purpose poly modelling tutorial like this (http://www.highend3d.com/global/tutorials/subdmodel/page1.3d) . Would work for max, maya, lightwave and any other poly modeller. Good luck. Why would you model that, anyway? Get your own reference - much more fun.

ya..... i agree with dvornik . Dont model others reference image .... Dont start with heavy complicated model ... if ur a beginner to modelling.... Try to model less detail objects .....

thanks guys for advice.
sorry for not mention what software i use. i am using 3dmax 4. so i want to improve my skill in modeling humans body rather than do basic things.

thanks again guys. and thanks for the link.

OK, since you are on max remember :
1. Polygons - use editable polys, not mesh
2. MeshTools - plugin (unless you have max 5 that includes most of them)
3. csPolyTools - plugin

Get plugins from scriptspot.com
Try to find out about edgeloops, quads and stuff.
Search this board and read a bit.

A poly tutorial:

It's hard work, man. I'm learning myself.
