I like to start with a box mesh, mostly its none too pretty, but that has even quads. Then toss it into a sculpt app. There I will retopologise it and displace it in my animation app.

Very nice topic
I use all possible methods while modeling my characters(which I generally do as a character artist).
1.I start with a boxy mesh and roughly model the proportion in Maya
2.Export the model to Zbrush and add features to it to bring the basic feel of the character
3.Draw loops on the character in Zbrush(with polypaint)
4.Export the loop paint as a texture,and apply it on maya.
5. Generate loops using NEX in maya and get the mid poly model.
6.Unwrap and re export to Zbrush
7.Finalize the model with details in Zbrush.

I will be posting my workflow as a tutorial very soon.
