I would like to have my brush strokes on one layer and coloring done by live paint bucket on another layer. When I select the strokes and make a live paint group to color with everything, strokes and colors inside strokes become one object. Is there any way to seperate my brush linework and colors on different layers?
if you use the 'Live Paint Bucket' Tool (k) to fill the areas required you can use the 'Live Paint Selection' Tool (Shift+L) to select an area and cut and paste it into another layer.
If you have multiple areas of colour, select one area with Shift+L > Select > Same > Fill Colour, to select all the same coloured areas
