sorry, but you are out of luck then. if the existing documentation and
tutorials are not sufficient then you *do* require personal training.
or somebody writing a tutorial that is suitable for you. but since you
only declare them "not clear enough" and don't provide any examples of
what exactly you are looking for to get as a "nice" picture, how
should somebody know what you don't understand and what a tutorial
that is "clear enough" has to look like?
