I tried this and failed. It is easy, as Daaark says, but in the end I just had to admit that I am not an artist. I followed any tutorial I could find, but my mind doesn't work in the manor required. I tend to focus on mechanical details and can model mechanical objects with ease, but cannot get the hang of organic modeling.
 
I'm not saying that to discourage you, but typically artistic talent appears early in life. If you have it, you know. Try it though. You may find a hidden talent.
My only concern with Blender is that it is open source meaning it evolves very quickly, so what I learn now, many not be the same in a year or 2. Unless, the changes aren't so drastic.  The thing is I am taking courses for graphics, like learning OpenGL and some aspects of how to create a simple game engine

Blender does change frequently, typically every other minor version release. However, this is usually a GUI change or added features. The program has changed significantly since 2.48 (the version I first downloaded), but the techniques still apply.
