    Live trace > Live Paint - can't select individual areas


      I have taken this sketch (jpeg) converted to .eps and performed a live trace in illustrator.  I then go to live paint to select areas to fill with different colors, but the whole image is selected.  It could have to do with me not being able to separate into layers before the trace, but i'm not too sure where i am going wrong here.  I've watched several tutorials on turning sketches into vector files, but obviously im missing a step.  Any help?
