Lorraine McKay (known as Aine2 on CC) has some great tutorials on her website. You have to pay for them, but they are well worth the money. She gives step by step directions. Go to extraicingonthecake.com.
You could subscibe to one of the aine2 tutorials or you can buy a polymer clay book that shows you how to make people and apply those to fondant. If you can't find a fondant person tutorial online, you could search for a polymer clay/play doh tutorial. HTH
