Man, you need a good understanding of PHP to know how to create and hook your themes logic to that of WordPress or drupal. I suggest you find someone who's comfortable with PHP, so he'll handle the PHP part while you handle the design

I have a good ( 65% ) understanding of java syntax & some mvc patterns, and realise that when i look at intermediate level php code i understand most of it. If you could suggest a particular tutorial that teaches theme making for CMSes i would appreciate.

After consulting the Oracle "IFA" on your behalf, I was directed to inform you that: youtube.com is the right channel, if you don't have enough money to purchase quality tutorial online. IFA said; sometimes Nairalander dey fall person hand. Message from the gods.

There're quite a lot of videos on WordPress theme development in YouTube. Just type WordPress theme development and you'll see a lot to choose from.

But before doing that, I suggest that you download any WordPress theme and take a look at their files — especially the functions.php file ( required by WordPress) and see how far you can understand their code. You may want to start by modifying their files and see how it affects the theme behaviour

when i wanted to start learning CSS Layout technique, Youtube didn't help much. Most vids playlist there are simply not broad enough to cover the topic so i skipped yotube for CMS theme design materials.
