what are some common things that you would see on a character sheet (not even sure if i have the term right)? i'm assuming a front and side view of the character, some facial expression studies, and maybe some detais of weapons or armor or any other gadgets.
also, any tips for someone new at character design?
The term generally being used is 'ortho' wich stands for 'orthographic view'
A lot of examples can be found here: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho....php?t=143047&
Facial expression studies aren't usually shown in ortho's because the modeler (he recieves the ortho) needs to see the face in a neutral position, so (s)he wont make any mistakes with the construction.
Weapons or attributes, whom need more clarification then is shown on the character can be placed seperatly to clarify things.
And tips for character design: Get some cool pictures from artists you like and redraw them, to see what kind of design elements they've used, or how they tackled certain design issues.
Also draw from life, a lot of (parts of) things can be used on characters.
And just draw them a lot.

Usually a few pose doodles are good for showing the character's personality, also they can give the animators some idea of how he might move, what positions he might take when he idles, and other stuff like that.
Also don't forget to show different itterations; art directors like to be given choices.
