BPelt’s Multifill and Flatten Pro tools can automatically add flat colors to your illustration with but a few clicks.
I whipped this up a while back because I’ve tried to share this tool with several artists and most of them don’t seem to comprehend how awesome it is. Seriously, it’s really awesome. Especially if you’re paying people to flat stuff for you.
Of course, there are ways to make these tools most effective, so I’ve detailed what I’ve learned so far. I hope this helps!
You can also make sure to keep the inks for different things separate from the start (all of the inks in my example were on a single layer) and run the filter multiple times to get different levels flatted separately.
I am having trouble however, getting this to appear as a filter in my Photoshop. I've extracted the files and added them to the Plug-ins folder. But nothing appears in the filter gallery.
I'm not sure anyone else is having trouble getting this to work, but wondering if you had any suggestions? REALLY would love to make use of this tool!
You also need to close the program and re-open it if you installed it while it was open.
Other than that, I'm not sure, but don't be afraid to contact BPelt for help
thanks for pointing these out celesse!
