(This is mainly aimed at digital painters)
Being able to detect gaps in line work, and paint/select within the space. As illustrated in the photo.

I imagine it finds a gap between two edges and "creates" an invisible line inbetween, to close the gap for coloring purposes. As if the computer calculates the shape of a given selection. An animation software called TVPaint is able to do this, if that will help you out.

Look for "Gap Closer" http://www.tvpaint.com/v2/content/art...

I also imagine it could be incorporated into the Magic Wand and Paint Bucket tool. Perhaps other tools as well.

So you want a filter to find and close gaps?

Changing the magic wand and paint bucket would be a lot more involved...

No, not close the gaps. Only fill out color or make the selection AS IF there was a gap. I think it will be very useful for storyboard artists, digital painters, cartoonists etc.

In case of the paint bucket tool:
