Ben Simonds's Creature Bat(practising high poly 3d modelling)

I have Ben Simonds’s book about 3d modelling mechanical spider and humanoid photorealistic male bat. However there’s one problem in this book he only explained more complicated stuff of 3d modelling. I want to learn how to start properly(I was thinking what someone here told me yesterday to start practising basics),but I need at least video tutorial of how to do it.
Just like here. I mean this model.

I re-uploaded it because it seems someone or somebody in Blender Artists deleted it,but it wasn’t me.
