How to color unclosed paths
on Aug 10, 2016 at 9:11:32 am

Hello everyone,

I really hope someone is able to help me with coloring my logo in Illustrator. I'm confused as I can't use Live Paint for some reason and I'm not sure what the right way to color it is (since the paths aren't closed).

This is my current logo:

I made a quick example in Photoshop of what I am aiming for. I would like it to be colored like this (preferably with gradients):

Can someone explain to me what's the best way to do this?

Thank you!
