I am super newbie at coloring digitally and I was wondering... How do color your drawings as if they had a watercolor effect?.

My colors right now look super flat and boring :(. I really like how water colors look and I think that's the style I am aiming for!

I use Gimp and have a tablet btw!

I think you are talking about Paint tool sai with water color brush. I may be wrong, but alot of artists, including me, uses a mix between regular brush and water color brush.

Well in PS, you can add a texture in your background, to make it look like you're painting on a rough paper, and then use an opacity brush. A very soft brush (with wet edges) should be perfect!
I don't have Gimp but I know it's similar to PS. Maybe you'll find it!

I don't know about GIMP, but I'm sure you can download some GIMP and / or ABR brushes that give those kinds of effects. Just search deviantart, "Watercolour brushes for GIMP" or the like.

Hope I helped!
