It's not about Photoshop, but an excellent digital painting book using Painter is called, "Digital Character Design and Painting". Also, and this may not be what you want to hear, but a course (or many courses) in traditional drawing and painting will serve you best in the long run. There's no one right way to use Photoshop to paint textures, and knowing which setting to use won't tell you anything about color theory, reflected light, texture, and so on.
Also, try posting up some textures you've done in the pimping section and I'm sure many folks here will be happy to offer suggestions on how to improve.
