Blender is a completely free to use 3D creation software for those want to do 3D modeling and 3D animation. Compare with others, there are many tools you can use with Blender for modeling, rigging (bones), animation, simulation, rendering, compositing, tracking, video editing, build games and even scripting with python to write your own Blender tools.
Personally I like Blender so much because it’s supported by global online community and from Blender official website there provide online manual, tutorials, professional social networking support, volunteer community support, demos and example files, FAQ section and bug report section.
Create 3D for FREE! Blender always the best for you. Enjoy the freebies dude.
P.S I use Blender to create my 3D games characters too.
