Need help with Mudbox texturing

Okay so i posted this question on the GD forum because im so stupid that i did not
read the "READ BEFORE PO...." message, anyway here is my problem:

I have been working with Cinema 4D for about 3 - 4 years on a hobby basis, so i am use to
working in that enviroment. A few times iv'e tried using Mudbox, and it has gone great everytime, right until i have to start painting. All the layers, uvs, maps, etc. Just confuse the crap out of me. I just want to paint my model.

Any sort of help would be greatly appreciated

I'm certainly no expert... but what types of questions do you have about painting specifically? or where are you running into problems?

Thank you for the quick reply, basically i want to know how i get from having a sculpted model to painting it? do have to "unwrap" (whatever that is) it? do i use bump maps? what is "the next step"?

Thank you for the links,i just dont got money to pay for tutorials at the moment :( I would reallly love to know what process i have to go through like when you do box modeling its like imageplane>box>extrude>adjust (thats at least somewhat how i learned it) how would the timeline be for mudbox texturing?

basically once you decide to paint click the Paint Brush icon, in the Paint Tools, on the bottom left. Once you start to paint i'll prompt you to decide on the format of your texture. so just decide on the format and then start painting.

if your model is constructed properly you should have no problems. the uv's are automaticly unwrapped in the texture it's making as you paint.

This is the Artist's Guide to Mudbox 2012, by Digital Tutors.
It's all free and explains the basics to pretty much everything you need to know about Mudbox, including painting:
