Automatic flat-coloring in Krita

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: :-)

Is this applicable anymore? As I can not find "Apply G'mic" Anywhere on Krita right now.

Hi :)

I'm not recommending using this tutorial any more (need to delete it). There are better ways of doing automatic coloring in Krita now :-)

Is there anywhere you may refer me too so I may learn how? I am extremely new to Krita. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Great tut but i got a c++ runtime error 😦🔫

That tutorial is obsolete.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 :-)
VortexSupernova's avatar
Oh well I fixed it

im almost there damn luckily i have the file already saved :(
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.

This is gonna be a huge time saver.

There are some improvements in that technique. Also few new versions of it came out :-)

I really wish I could find this in my version...DX
Rastaban26's avatar
It should be there somewhere :) But on the other hand, those versions are changing so rapidly that it's impossible for me to be sure :)
Flora-Tea's avatar
I found it XD But it never works haha

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 :')
CartoonMad97's avatar
I'm struggling with this now too! It worked first time around :( 
Rastaban26's avatar
It happens. It's not a very stable feature :)

I need help. In my Krita, when I went to layers, there's no Apply G' Mic Action. Can you help?
