painting the textures is really intuitive. BUT you won't be able to paint textures if you can't paint.

the hardest part is unwrapping the texture maps in Maya using the UV Editor, after that you just have to paint, and, unfortunately, no tutorial will make you a good painter. they can lend you techniques, but its up to you to practice and become a better painter.
