I'm new to this forum and I'm surprised that nobody else took the time to respond to you. Just like you I'm new to digital arts, but I went through enough tutorials to know a thing or two about this.

I'm from corel Painter mostly, but a trick about the glow effect is to ...say..if you want a glowy yellow like the one in your picture, when you pick your color, try using a very very dark tone of yellow in your color panel. Like pick one almost close to the black point. Then try to glide the thing on your drawing. A golden glow with a better tone should appear. The error to make is trying it with a light color. I can't explain why but it's like that, pick a very very dark version of the color you want.
