Fortunately there is a nice range of free 3D digital art applications and tools to get budding digital artists started with some great creations. I put the question to the 3D Art Direct magazine readership of what has been their experience in using these tools and what did they use most frequently.
I include the best responses below, but if you’d still like to pitch in, then you can answer a quick three question poll here and we’ll add your brief review to this post, once approved. We’ll also include a link to your gallery of digital artwork.

To answer your question, my top free application has been Daz Studio from www.daz3d.com. I started on version 2, and work now in 3, 4, and 4.5 along with Poser Pro 2010, and Carrara Pro 8- which are both paid for applications. Studio can be relatively easy to get a grip on, if you spend time after installing it to go through the manual and start small. I did not, so my stubborn behavior cost me about a year of frustration before I finally had enough and opened that .pdf file. There is so much that you can do with the program if you can get the basics.
