I'd say Sketchup is great, only if they featured a nice renderer ...
Very nice model, colours look great and the whole piece looks cute overall. Shadow looks nice too.
That's some heavy cuteness you got there. Makes me want to try Google Sketchup.
It's really easy, probably easiest for making some quick 3D models out there. Don't try to do curves though, just square things.
