Question Begining Digital Painting?

I'm thinking of starting to do digital painting and I just don't know where to start.
I have a tablet that I bought a while back and i can draw. Now, how do I start to color? Is there a general procedure? I know first comes the clean up and then laying down the basic color you will you use for the picutre. I just don't know how to get smooth shading using something like airbrush tool, seems to me that when i use lower opacity on the bush and lay down strokesm they overslay and the picture turns out bad.

Any suggestions? What is the general tool that is used to do digital coloring?
