Sub Question 1:- Can I create this in GIMP?

Sub Question 2:- Please also list down tools which can be used to create 3D characters like this and then I can take snaps of the character from different angles, like profile view, back view, top down view and at any custom angle.

You need 3d Software.. Gimp or anything Adobe makes won't do it. –  Scott Oct 23 '13 at 12:44

You could draw it (2D) in Gimp, but you would have to re-illustrate each angle. This question will probably help: graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/19794/… –  Yisela Oct 24 '13 at 0:16

This character could be done in any 3D package such as:

  • Autodesk's Maya - Some consider this as the standard for any 3D character modeling and character animation.
  • 3dS Max - Also produced by Autodesk but is considered the standard for architectural models.
  • Blender - Arguable one of the best opensource solutions for 3D modeling and one of the best character animation sequences known as Big Buck Bunny was developed by the Blender Foundation.

    just to name a few.
