    You have multiple Live Paint Groups. You need to combine the multiple Live Paint Groups to 1 group. Click the "Merge Live Paint" button in the control bar across the top of the screen.

    Firstly you are not allowed to copy other people’s work, so don’t.

    Draw your own stuff.

     

    Secondly learn how to do things properly using closed paths.

    Live Paint is sort of o.k. as far as it goes but you won’t learn much about Illustrator if you use it without knowing how to do things the other way.

    Actually you said nothing helpful for me...

    It is often helpful to know that you are doing things wrong.

    Especially if you are a beginner it is important to start off right.

     

    Closed paths are continuous paths with no gaps in them.

    Try to get used to using them if you want to fill areas with colour.
