Can the lathe tool be used to model human characters?Most 3d programs have lathe. I use Silo or Carrara 4.Any better way to go?

Lathe only spins a profile around a certain axis, so you'll get an object looking like a cylinder (vase, glass, bottle)..
Box modelling is the best way to start, and then add details.
