Hi my names Josh. I've been using illustrator for a while now but can't figure this one thing out that really frustrates me. Most of the work i do comes from photos that i trace with the pen tool then enhance them with illustrator. I'm working on a drawing of myself currently. When i draw the Hair It becomes a path. Then i draw the outline of the face. The problem is that I cant use things like "fill" or mesh gradient because outline on the face doesn't have its own "fill area." I've uploaded a pic to better illustrate the problem.
