I like passing along little tips to new users of Artrage I discover, more specifically for cartooning/digital illustrating. When I have large areas of a color to fill, I will start with my ink pen (hot key I) and outline the subject matter (on a separate layer underneath my solid black outline layer) in one color. After I contain a large area-like the chunk I have outlined in the top image, I'll switch to the Fill tool (hot hey F) and click inside the outlined area. This will quickly fill a large area fast, and put less wear and tear on your tablet's pen or mouse. You'll notice that it will leave a small outline of pixels (bottom image) but those can be quickly drawn over by switching back to ink pen to go over.
