maya's 3d paint is not good enough to make good textures, as a matter fact i would never use it to texture.
but if you have not yet textured anything, photoshop or gimp or paint .NET [ http://www.eecs.wsu.edu/paint.net/ ] is a good way to start. knowing how to properly lay out UVs for poly meshes is also a plus.
good luck
