How to fill in line art on a different layer in photoshop ?

What I mean is, how do I make it so that when I use the bucket tool in a layer under/over my line art it fills in the shape of the line art?

( I could’ve sworn I’ve done that before but for some reason it doesn’t work anymore and Idk why. )

    Check the settings of the bucket tool, make sure it is set to CONTIGUOUS.  

    Conversely, You could use the Quick Selection tool or even the Magic Wand Tool to select the area inside the lines.  Then using the bucket will fill this area.
