    Image editing software of some sort, for example GIMP, Paint .NET or Photoshop.

    A 3D modeling program to view your progress is also handy, though not always necessary.

    And VTFEdit or VTF Plugin for the image editing software.

    You cannot animate a .mdl file.

    First you need to make the animations in your program of choice (most use 3DS Max) and export the animations and reference as .smd files.
    Then you compile the few .smd's to a .mdl.
