    check out blender at http://www.blender.org – not sure how it stands up to the likes of maya, 3ds, lightwave etc (since modelling isnt my bag) ….. but it is open source and free :D

    If you are wanting to work from home, and get started quickly, definitely get Blender

    http://www.blender.org

    It’s free, open-source, and has a built-in games engine ( of course, it also has all of the usual rendering features )

    Also, you’ll get loads of help from the online community…

    At the link above, check out the contests page… a great way of starting out might be to try some of their weekend challenges.

    Yes, you could learn from home. While free tutorials from the web are great to start off with eventually you’ll need more in-depth information. I’d be more inclined to use one of the PLE versions of a commercial software and buy a good book. But in saying that Blender is picking up a lot of support so maybe that would be a wise place to start.
