Flatting in 10 Seconds Flat! by CyberToaster Flatting in 10 Seconds Flat! by CyberToaster
The body was really popular, so I did a tutorial all about how I save time when I do flats. This process used to take me ages, until a professor and colleague Jose (DC Comics) showed me a better way! Hope this helps.

Love you guys!

Filter should work on any Version of Photoshop past CS.

May I please have your permission to attempt to make a possibly 3D model of this stunting, stunning work?

Also if you make the lines a Bitmap then turn it back to RGB color you can run the BPelt MULTIFILL option. :) That saves a LOT of time and no need to drop colors in all the areas with the fill bucket. Just throwing that out there. That's how I do a most of my flats.

Yes, Multifill is definitely useful, but if you're at all unsure of your line fidelity, you could actually spend more time filling in the odd clusters if disparate colors you get with multifill. I prefere the paintbucket because you're only filling in the colors you want and you don't have to change all the flats when your finished. It also allows you to choose which sections you'd like to be selected together by making unified groups.

Yeah, It definitely depends on the line quality. If the line quality is pretty shoddy or if it has a lot of patchy white/black spots then Bpelt's MulitFil and Flatten can be the "long way around". Sometimes it's best to flat the old fashioned way. lol

As far as I know there is no flats plug-in for gimp. You likely have to just do flats the old fashioned way with that program.
