    For your purpose, there are several to choose from:

    Cinema 4D
    Wings 3D (free)
    Blender (free)
    Maya
    Lightwave
    3D Studio Max
    GMax (free)

    I've pretty much tried using all of these, and IMO 3D Studio Max is the easiest to do polymodeling with (what you seem to want to learn how to do). To me, it has the most comprehensive, non-overwhelming interface out of all of them. I went from knowing nothing, to doing a full girl warrior as my third model.

    Oh, also, I've heard Wings 3D is also really great for some fast polymodeling. Plus, it's free.

    Try Gmax first, then 3D Studio Max. Both are easy to use to get into modelling and both have excellent tutorials as well.

    Gmax is good, but it really isn't that great for using with stuff that doesn't support it. Scripts could be used to export to a more widely used format, but that would probably be more of a hassle...

    ZBrush is an excellent (& unique) prog, that will let you model in 3D (especially for organic shapes), then edit in 2D.

    I didn't really like the interface in Milkshape 3D myself, but if you really want a flexible 3D program which you can use legally then Milkshape's definitely the one to go for as the price is pretty reasonable.

    Especially when you consider that it's only it's only $25 whereas 3D Studio Max costs $3495
