  • $\begingroup$ Currently there are multiple questions being asked here, it would be better to split the different requests into separate questions (if the questions haven't already been asked by other users on this site) $\endgroup$ Aug 2, 2014 at 12:26

In order to create an animation such as walking you need to do some 'Rigging'. There are plenty of tutorials on this. Try to search on Youtube for things such as 'Blender character rigging' and you should get a lot of good results. Don't think about rigging until you've finished your model, though. You must make sure you model correctly. As you're new to Blender you will end up modeling in a difficult way, which is what most people do.

I suggest you download a low poly character model and practice on that. But I highly recommend you look at many different tutorials on character modeling, rigging and topology; the latter is very important. It also makes the Rigging process a lot easier. It'll take time but you've got to be willing to learn everything there is to know, if you want to be a good CG artist; it's a tough business.

Sites like Blenderguru and Blender Cookie are a good place to start.
