Sculpting should be done before texturing and rigging.

i c.. but if i scuplt b4 texture n rigging,, then the uv must be more complicated isn it??

you will UV at the lowest sub-d level and the data will propogate through your higher levels.

do u means by subd mode.. but.. if using subd,, must be got lot of n-gon.. and how to solve it when we want to do a uv mapping???

Subd does not create ngons if your base model doesn't have any to begin with. Or did you mean "it will create lots of polygons?"

It doesnt matter if you have 16 million polygons, like musashidan said, simply UV the lowest division and it will be kept through all the levels. You could even use automated unwrapping in zbrush, if you plan on polypainting the mesh.

ZBrush prompts you to UV at the lowest sub-D anyway, so you can't really go wrong.
I like to learn.

oh.. i means yes.. my base is all quad.. then i convert into subd mode.. like create a lot of polygon
and i do uv mapping in maya.. b4 send it to zbrush. after all the modeling done in subd and uvmapping.. then i scuplt in zbrush and then i send it back to maya file.. it will be alright??

Best off doing your UVs on your lowest sub-d level AFTER all your major forms/silhouette sculpting is finished. That way your UVs won't be distorted from pushing/pulling the mesh around.
