Game Developing on a budget (or without one)

In a week or two I'm going to start work on my first game single handedly and without an idea in my head or a penny in my pocket.
I've found PCFormat DVDs to be a good source of older versions of commercial software (such as Cinema 4d and Poser), but the range is a bit limited.
Can anybody recommend freeware versions of the following?

Image Editor (Up to PSP standard),
3d Modeller/Renderer,
Audio Editing Package.

Ideally I'd like something like painter but free, and no I don't mean a cracked version

Hehe. PCFormat is an excellent source for things to use.

I've got Bryce 3D from PCF and also Vue D'esprit. Both are excellent for making 3D backgrounds.

I use paint shop pro 4 for other backgrounds, but I usually get other people to make them!

For music I use Cakewalk Express

And for the engine, I use QBasic, AGS or Delphi.

Very low budget needed, i.e. 5!

In the shops or from warez sites. It's a commercial product and very hard to find on the internet. I think there are some trial demos tho

Gimp is a good publicly available graphics program. Try searching for it on Google.

I use POVray for 3D graphics, and model with Moray.
It's not as immediately user friendly as some programs, but you can get some fantastic results with a little work.

I agree, The GIMP is your best bet for free 2D editing.

I use SoundForge for audio editing and thouroughly recommend it. It's commercial and quite expensive but I think you can get early versions for free if you look around. The version I use came bundled with some other software.

www.stmuc.com/moray
www.gimp.org

Good luck.
