    Look at the following:
    ER/Studio (www.embarcadero.com)
    ER/Win (www.ca.com)
    Oracle Designer (www.oracle.com)
    PowerDesigner (www.sybase.com)

    For working with a variety of databases like Oracle and Sybase, I think PowerDesigner is a very good product. It is intended for large corporate customers, but many consultants like it too. Oracle Designer is probably the most expensive, because it only comes in the multi-user edition where all others consider than an upgrade, and Oracle Designer also comes on CD with seven fully licensed tools - again, a product for corporations with money, but people interested in learning Designer can download for free and play with it as long as they want (no expiration) from http://technet.oracle.com/. Oracle hopes you will learn it at home then tell your boss to buy it.

    You should also check out Dezign from Datanamic :-
    http://www.datanamic.com/index.html

    It is very affordable (about $200) compared to products like ERWin, and has a separate add-on for MySQL, which keeps the overall price down.
    There is a free download evluation version, which never ran out last time I checked.

    You will find it listed, along with many other, on this page on the Database Answers web site :-
    http://www.databaseanswers.com/modelling_tools.htm

    You will also get an idea of what the Data Models look like from the dozens that have been created using Dezign on this page :-

    Hope this helps.
