I just downloaded sculptris from http://pixologic.com/sculptris/
the same guys that do Zbrush I believe. This is a free sculpting program. So this is my first stab playing around. I created this in about 30 minutes. I haven't figured out the painting part of the program yet, but from this first jump I think I will like this program.

I don't know how much 3D stuff I will get done but wanted to start a new thread with what I come up with. Feel free to give advice.
