Just to add to this. You don't want to model in a heroic pose, as you'll lose the ability to use symmetry, plus a relaxed T-style pose (or quadrupedal equivalent) can allow great access to all areas of the model.
Though most people will develop their own ways of building characters, and what posses they use.
Nice sculpt Kurt.
