From Point to Polygon

I want to learn 3d modeling but from a vector standpoint (if possible). Needs to be OSX compatible.

I'm an artist and rather proficient with Adobe Illustrator. There's been many times I wanted to try to model in a 3d environment but it's so far out of my league that I barely know where to begin. I've tried with Cinema 4D and poked around with ZBrush before, but not with much success.
I'd like to be able to model some playful backgrounds (in the key of Pixar's work...not hyper realistic like say Lord of the Rings). Eventually I'd like to model some characters however I know that takes time and practice (I can practice however time has never been my friend).
So what program would be good to try out from a vector arena and would produce some cartoony backgrounds at first, characters later.
I should mention: I hate Bryce and never have liked the results it produces.
