Automatic flat-coloring in Krita by Rastaban26 Automatic flat-coloring in Krita by Rastaban26
Hello :-)
When I first saw this filter int Krita I wanted to share it with other artists that base their drawing on linearts. But it was hard to describe what to do, so I've decided to make a simple tutorial to show how to use it. Please note that it is the basic way of using this filter. Feel free to experiment with other settings :-)

All lineart's here are done by :iconmalaika4: :-)

That tutorial is obsolete. Need to update the description because it's giving people false hope. There are now 2 other different approaches to achieve the same effect :-)

Do you have a tutorial for the newer versions of Krita? Because none of the menus are the same now, and "colorize [comic]" is no longer an option. I'm not quite sure how to get the filter to work. Nothing I've tried has gotten the result I wanted.

Thanks for putting this together! I look forward to getting the damn thing to work. :)

Unfortunately I don't have any new tutorials about that. But now (Krita 4.0) there are at least two new ways to achieve that effect :-)

I've just spent some time playing around and have it figured out! I hope this helps you:

The G'MIC filter can now be found under Filter > Start G'MIC Qt.  Go to Black and White > Colorize lineart [propagation].

In the Input/Output box on the left, you need to select "All" for the inpute layers, but that's all you need to do. The rest of the settings are on the right, which you can see follow the tutorial from the OP :) Click apply and you're done!

To the OP: thank you so much for this, it's going to save me so much time.

Everytime I chose the Colorize [comic] option Krita stops responding and I can only chose to exit the program. Looks like I'm stuck with colouring manually :')

Never mind, I got that solve. But I have an problem. When I set Input layers to Lineart + Extrapolated colors, my color spots didn't color the whole thing. Can please help me on this?

EDIT: Never mind (again), but I got a coloring problem, how would I fix this?   sta.sh/0rt51q7bvtw

Sorry for not being here recently.

Good to hear that you ware able to solve your problems :D
However the one you're presenting now is interesting. No idea what happened there, my only clue is that maybe those color spots you're using contain more than one color (but they just look very similar) It would be nice to if I ware able to reproduce this effect somehow. Then it would be possible for me to investigate :)

Maybe I'm just stupid but I'm confused on how to set my layers. I obviously did it wrong considering this didn't work at all for me. It'd also help if there was a video tutorial I could watch, if that exists, could you please tell me where to find it?

Oh yes, that's true. And it's even better now since there is a new so-called interactive version of it. Where you can just put colors and shift them around to preview the output before accepting final version :)

I like it but I think Krita was too much for my desktop that has already been through a lot. When I get a new one, I'll try Krita again :3

Rastaban26 Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
In 2.9.8 it's under

Filters->G'MIC->Black and white -> Colorize comic 
or
Filters->G'MIC->Black and white -> Colorize interactive (I encourage to test out this version, it's even faster to work with this one)

Yep:

Filters->G'MIC->Black and white -> Colorize interactive

You can do a bit more that way :-) But I'm still waiting for the brush version of this filter. It will be like coloring a spot and the spot will grow to fill the whole area inside the contour :-)

I tried it and it crashed my computer =(  And now Krita won't start up.  Idk what happened but I think I have to re-install the program and see what happens.

I really don't know what to say, never heard anything like that before. Try considering helping those developers a bit by describing what is happening if the problem will be repeatable. Good luck :)
