I am trying to fill the white space in my art work using live paint. I select all of the art work and click in the space I want it to fill but it seems to only give me the option of filling the little black lines (see images below) instead of the white space around it I want to fill.

The white (chest) area is not part of the selection. Therefore It won't be part of the Live Paint group and won't be filled.

I guess the white area is empty and you want to create a shape which fills it. Your black frame around the white area has a gap or some part of it is not selected. The problem can be seen in the bottom. It looks like a black line is out of the selection.

If there was a piece which is not a path you would get a warning dialog.

I have wrestled with the same problem like an idiot when I forgot I had locked some parts. Check the Layers panel is there locked objects.

BTW. Live paint can accept also gaps. See Live Paint Gap options.
