It's fairly basic, but that's the best way to start. I personally wouldn't vertex paint it. Try using smart unwrap to start with, then painting a texture

my it's late here and my eyes are tired. I read that line as

"I pervertex paint it."

I wonder what a pervertex would do with a locked mesh?

Nice Job gozzy ^_^ Keep at it! And no don't use Vertex Paint to texture it. That won't work out too well.

You're probably best focusing on the low poly side of things if you want to use your models in games. The alien head you posted has 33k faces, so isn't very useful in games as it consumes lots of computer resources. To make that model usable you will need to go into normal map baking which is probably a little bit too advanced if you're just starting out.
