I just want to share some of the rare software gems I've stumbled upon. I know for free the Blender program is main stream and is a good program. But theres also a program from DAZ called Hexagon that is for free download and in my eyes is very superb and I would pay hundreds to get it if it wasnt free.. Heres a screenshot from the web

Theres also another App called DeleD 3D that seems is also free and also seems to be a kind of copy of Gmax.. I don't think this software compares to hexagon but I know alot of people despretly try to use Gmax for game design but because of its limited export feature it never works. DeleD 3d is a good one, has alot of the same tools and layout.
heres a screen

And for 2d I find a good program is Paint Shop Pro, its not free like gimp but its a good one.
thanks, hopes this helps people with design needs.. and def try Hexagon
