Download the newest Blender 2.53beta (don't bother with the older 2.49), and check these video tutorials:

but you will need probably months of practice before you will be able to create something that somewhat decent.

Months? I would say at least a year. Blender is very sophisticated and requires much patience and diligence.

You can start here.

How long it takes to make a good human model all depends on the individual, not the application. If you're a good learner and dead serious about modeling then it can be just a week or two (note, I'm talking about a low poly game model, not a high resolution photorealistic human being).

However, with that said, creating humans in 3D isn't an picknick either. If you're a newbie I'd strongly suggest you watch tons and tons of tutorials on how to create one and also start off with something simpler. Learn topology and proportions diligently.

Yes, never said that it is due to Blender (but for starters Wings3D might be better). However I disagree that you could learn to make a good looking low-poly human in 2 weeks. You could maybe copy the mesh of a good looking one in that timeframe, but from scratch, absolutely not. And texturing is another beast all together, at takes at least as long to learn, if you are actually painting it and not such render it from a high poly mesh.

I didn't include the time it took for you to learn how to model a human being and texture it but actual work after you've gathered all that knowledge. I created a high poly human being which was pretty decent my first try in about a week, but of course I watched so many tutorials that I lost count on that and looked at others mistakes and whatnot in order to learn. I also re-watched them over and over to hammer in the knowledge. Plus used them as I went along with my own model and my own references. So yes, even someone who hasn't done such things before can make it in 2 weeks if they have the proper knowledge of course.
