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That tutorial is obsolete.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.

I really wish I could find this in my version...DX

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 :)

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 :')

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

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 :)

Sorry for the late replay, anyways, where I could find that?

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?
