Really easy, but if you have a tight budget, I recommend Blender as its free/open source. I personally use blender and its great. Tons and tons of tutorials on the inter webs and youtube and you can whip up a frog model like the one used really easily. Also use gimp for textures if on a tight budget cos thats free too or grab photoshop.
