Default Program to draw Puppets

Hi Guys,

I want to try and draw two puppets for a character I want to make. I have the Engi Mechanics of it down, and a visual idea just need to mock it up.

I am not good at drawing, but like a simple program I should be able to use. I don't wanna make anything fancy, just to get the concept across. It could be line drawings or simple 3D shapes put together to form the body, etc. I tired Visio, but it was too limiting as I could only use blocks so got stuck at a point.

Do you have any suggestions?

Oh, so like a program that would be able to move around 3D shapes so you could build what a model of the puppet would look like?

The only thing I ever used that did 3D like that is a free program called 'Sketchup', but it isn't exactly your best choice. It was meant for doing buildings, so it has a lot of limitations in where objects can come from. It feels more like building a house in the sims.
