One of the most famous modeling tutorials on the net is 'Joan of Arc'. Almost 80 pages long, it covers everything from modeling the body and accessories to texturing and rigging the model.
Although it is written for 3DS Max, you can use almost everything directly in Blender (especially the texturing and rigging sections are more specific to 3DS Max). All the required image templates are provided
There are two versions available:
- English version
- French version (the original)
- Spanish version
I know this tutorial for a long time. In my opinion this tutorial is the best box modeling, low poly character tutorial.
I was modelled my fisrt girl with this tutorial, when blender hasn't loop modelling tools... now is very easy.
Im totally new to 3D modeling, I-ve downloaded Blender 2 months ago, and making a "library" of tutorials, samples, etc downloaded from the web. The point is, Im too rookie to know the equivalent between 3DMax and Blender, so, what about making a 100% Blender version of this tutorial...!!!
This was a standard during my Max days. I'm glad it's being reintroduced to Blender users!
@marcos: I agree: a 100% Blender version of this tutorial would be awesome!
Yeah, while these tutorials for 3D Max are still very useful, if someone skilled enough rewrote the tutorial in great detail for blender, it would be invaluable.
I've thought about that too, Marcos. But I realised that I wasn't experienced enough.
Akator has a blend file of the completed model available for download at the Blender 3D model repository (http://www.katorlegaz.com/index.php?a=download&c=Blender_3D_Model_Repository). Look under "Characters" for the file named "c0rkn0t_broun6_female.zip".

Hola Sangio... has pensado en traducirlo y "pasarlo" a Blender...... este es justo el tipo de manuel que he estado buscando....!
Please... a blender port for this tutorial...!!!!!
I wanna tutorial on facial modeling and body modeling
nice, but I'm having a hard time replicating the Chamfer function on the glove section. Any one found a way round this as Blender doesn't have a chamfer function. (apart from messing around with V and P)!
Might wanna update your links. The English page has now been moved to:
The original URL returns an error. :/
The model at the 3d model repository does'nt exist anymore.There are some downloadable models of males and females , is this what you meant.If not , can you tell us where else we can get a finished joan of arc model?
@Alan, jason: links updated. Thanks for the headsup!

Both links provided don't work. After some searching I think I found the English version:
Also this tutorial seems nice: http://www.3dtotal.com/team/Tutorials_3/Box_modeling_video_tutorial/Box_modeling01.php
