If you are serious about your artwork and game development 3d studio max or maya are by far the best.If you are a hobbiest with no real ambition in the 3d market or are skint then blender and milkshape are ok.

You can do just about anything that you need to do from a gaming art creation standpoint int Blender that you can in any other app.

The other apps may have easier to learn interfaces. Would you rather spend a few days learning the interface, or spend a few grand on something with a slightly easier interface? Any 3D program of substance is going to have a learning curve attached to it, Blender''s just take a little longer that the others, but Blender is VERY efficent once you learn it.

As far as professional go, I would imagine that they use the commercial apps, simply because of history and training. Most art schools teach the commercial apps so ....

If you are looking for a career in 3D, learn Max,Maya, Lightwave, etc. If you are a hobbyist, someone who just want to learn 3D, go Blender.

Beleave me you are not paying a "few grand" for just a slightly easier interface both max and maya a massive programs (you only need to look at the manual to see that) that are in a completely differant league to blender and that is the main reason that it is the proffesionals choice

They may have more ''features'' but when it comes to getting GAME related art done, the differences aren''t hot huge.

If you want to get hired by a game development studio, then you need Max or Maya skills (or, ideally, both :-)

If you want to just create game art, then use whatever you can lay your hands on. Chances are, your tool will not be the limiting factor for the art you create. Only if you really find a compelling reason why you''d do better on a higher end package do you need to upgrade.
