I'm pretty new to the digital painting myself, but I think I can help you, with if nothing else, but the extreme basics.
The idea to digital painting would be to start blocking in shapes with a large brush. Then work to a smaller brush as you work in the details.
I haven't worked out a good opacity/flow setting that I like yet, but that will help with your gradients.
Hope that helped:)

i've practiced digital painted for acouple days now, and I'm very familiar with PS7 as well. I'm thinking I eventually will move on to using painter I figured I'd learn to do it in photoshop first. Well to start you off you need to clean up your sketch or pencil/ink layer then just put that layer mode on "multiply". You want to put on the base colors first so on a new layer use the paint brush and start filling, also use the polygon lasso tool to get to the edges. So basicly as you go on to highlights or shadows you want them to be on all seperate layers. Good luck.
