I have started with the gnomon dvd head and body modeling when i started with organic modeling it's a bit dated(around maya 6.5 ), but it deals with all the basics I would start from there or something similar first before going to nextgen or cinematic approaches because the learning curve will be to steep start light with everything and build up from there.
Trust me when I say that charactermodeling will always be a struggle
