easy and 3d rarely go together... any 3d program can get quite complicated. Are you animating or just modelling in the 3d software?
Cinema 4D is available on MAC and should do most that you need.
ZBrush is an interesting alternative in that it uses a different method for modelling that might seem a lot more intuitive... treats it more like sculpting.
and Photoshop even has some limited 3D capabilities..
3d modelling isn't generally a particularly simple thing, though.
There is a free 3d program called Daz Studio you could try out.. I have never used it myself so I don't know what you should expect. http://www.daz3d.com/i/software/daz_studio3/download?_m=d
