Well people kinda need more information before they says yes to something.
What kind of character? Do you got referrence images, or a concept? Where is it for? Do People have to work for free or is there payment?
That kind of stuff.

The more information, the more likely people are to help you out. If you have a good idea people will get enthousiastic.

Hate to sound like as douche, but you really should know that by now. I mean, that's about the 6th or 7th time you've made a simaler request. It's hard for someone to know if they want to make something without having much of an idea what that thing is

Do you have any progress already? Not everyone has enough time to make models for other anim8tors. We're here rather to help to spot flaws in others models and suggest changes or improvements. I don't want to sound rude, but on other forums you might immediately get banned for such topics. Maybe it's not the matter of question, but the way of asking (without detailed informations as someone spotted before). I think that would be easier for somebody to decide if you gave some concept art or something.
If you have problems with modelling you should try to take part in forum challenges or in modelling challenges and competitions on other sites. If you have an idea how your model should look like start with doing concept sketches on a paper or model something with clay. Then start progressing with single parts - from rougher solids to more detailed. When you create something don't forget to post results ;)
Good luck!

At the start you may need anim8tor - it's very good modeller and starter animation package :) (maybe GIMP for editing textures will be helpful too) Then you need some sketches of your imagined characters (maybe some hints of personality, different clothing, level of detail etc.). And you can start modeling. If you're not feeling good with modelling you can follow some tutorials before you start. These looks very nice and detailed for me:

I'm sorry but I can't help you more.

Maybe if you had anim8or in the first place and tried using it, you'd have made what you've been requesting already. Stop asking "if" and just "do"! You'll never get anywhere if you keep asking people to do your stuff for you, including research which is most important. DIY!
