How do I fill my vector file with color?
First of all, I'm sorry if this has been asked before but I've been searching and trying for the past 2 hours without any luck. I'm only getting started with Illustrator, so forgive me if this is a stupid question.
I purchased this file and am trying to colorise it (fill it with color).
I found how to change the border color of it, but I can't find a way to fill the actual inside of the image. I found a way but it's extremely complicated ..if I change the background image of the entire file and move it behind, so I assume the background that I am trying to fill is currently transparent.
How would I do this? I'm totally lost :(
You can try using the live paint tool.
Select your object and choose Object>Live Paint>Make
Choose the Live Paint Bucket tool
Fill with your selected color
You can later expand the object if you need to edit it further.
