Just wanted to post the final version of the character model and texture paint. For my first crack at a full texture paint on a model I think it came out really well.
What's really awesome is that to make this composite I used Photoshop CS3's capability of importing in 3D models that you are then able to rotate around into position. Really awesome stuff. The only issue I've found so far is that it can't display the alpha map on the "skirt". Oh well.
