I'm using Unity 5 to make a small game (I'm a beginner) and I want to make a 3D model of a character. I'm not sure what software there is to do this and if there is some, I would like it to be preferably free, but if anyone can help or give advice I would appreciate it. I want to be able to make a 3D model and then import it to Unity 5. Thank you.

Blender likely meets your requirements. I have used it in the past to make 3D models and export to model files which Unity can import.

I would highly recommend watching some tutorial videos before using it:

Blender StackExchange can help answer more questions about Blender.

  • $\begingroup$ Please do not spread the idea of using the .obj format. Please choose a more capable format to promote, whether exporting manually or using the .blend directly, which will probably be best for a beginner's purposes. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Although I do not agree with your comment, this is not the right place for that debate. I have edited my answer to remove the OBJ reference. $\endgroup$
