Got a project to animate a moving person(image);have been adviced to try Open GL for the work.

You're gonna have to learn OpenGL, try nehe.gamedev.net for tutorials. Good luck!

Is it a picture based animation (like good old cel cartoons) ? or a 3D model ?

For the first case you will have to get the different pictures in memory, each on a different GL texture, then map a quad with it, and change over time wich texture is mapped on the quad.
