    Thank you, but it makes the texture itself as the first 3D model respectively in a separate software? Or is it creates on polygon?
    Thank you

    Sorry, I couldn't really help you here.

    But I do believe that the creation of textures for 3D are very different if it comes to static objects and/or animated objects like humans or animals. For static objects the use of an drawing or paint apps would be fine, like Car or Airplane etc. but for moving objects. For moving objects may it need to be done in apps like Maya, Autodesk etc and I think the most complicated task would be to keep the proportions in the right manner all times to show reality!

    Again, I'm not able to help you here, I use 3D mainly for to create animated 3D Text for Websites and other graphical layouts.

    Not really sure if you're asking how to create the UV map, or how to color it. If the latter the TurboSquid links states:

    Sorry, wrong I will explain. When I create a polygon man in Maya, so where did I take the texture? To look like a real man.

    Sorry I still don't understand your question. I haven't used Maya but I'm pretty sure you can either create a UV map and paint on it in either Maya or import into Photoshop, Gimp, MS Paint etc. Or Paint directly on the model using different projection options, just like with Bodypaint. I think your best bet would be to look at some video tutorials on Youtube or something. That's one of the best ways to learn 3D. I'm by no means an expert. But your question made me search Youtube and I found several Maya tutorials on both the above methods within seconds. In the links you posted it was hand painted. So the texture came from the artist's brain & skill, if that's what you're asking :)

    I'm not sure as I haven't played with the 3D stuff in Photoshop. You don't need it to paint on a UV map as you export it from Maya as a 2D image, eg Tiff, png etc.

    the textures you point to are not created in the 3d program but in photoshop or some other image editor, either from procedurally generated images or by digital painting or from chopping up bits of photos and altering those. my recommendation for 3d software is blender which is a free download, gimp is a free photo editor to make those sort of textures.
