Xara Drawing – Even though it is basically a 2D drawing program, Xara Designer does have an extrude tool that lets you create, modify and rotate 3D shapes. If you have the skill and the patience you can create an image like this, or, you can do as I did and follow this fantastic tutorial on the Xara Xone
That is the beauty of Xara Designer, it can be used to create anything from cartoons to realistic images like this one. It can also be used to create web pages and manipulate photographs. Truly an all in one design package. Check it out at the Xara Web Site where you can download 30 day trials of all their apps.
