I want to know if there is a possibility to "cut" the mesh into single objects (triangles, other polygons) I create using Pen Tool? I followed examples in these two tutorials: Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop tutorial: Create a low-poly portrait and Low Poly Art in Photoshop by RedundantPotato...
However the first one seems like too much effort (as I am still struggling with mastering the Illustrator tools and have a deadline on me) and second one isn't accurate enough.
I came up with the idea to just draw the mesh above the picture I'm working on and add colours individually to the polygons.
However the paths I'm creating aren't split into individual polygons but remain a singular path. Is there a possibility to cut a complex path into smaller objects (polygons)?
For example this one
split into individual polys?
I finally conquered the problem thanks to @joojaa here's my first attempt finished (still needs a lot of polishing and patience):
