Here is my situation. I'm very good with 3d as well as 2d and use them equally and I have $150 bucks to burn which i want to purchase a graphics program with. What graphics programs (ie 3d studio max) would you recommend to me. I'm interested in making graphics such as starcraft style HUDs, menus, terrain textures such as grass, snow, or dirt etc(not people or weapons, things that have to look extremily reaistic). If you know of any programs that could do this I'd love to know what they are.
