I've been having the most awful time trying to create an SVG file in Illustrator so that the scribe is drawn properly.
I want the outline drawn first, and then the color drawn in. I have been unable to find a tutorial online showing exactly how to do it. When I do it, the outline drawn in includes bleeds from the color that will follow. See attached video.
What if I want the hand to draw my letters with the fill? Can't figure out how to create an svg out of text in Illustrator that will accomplish this.

Hi to anyone who might be dealing with the color bleed problem.
This was driving me nuts, so here's the workaround I found:
understanding that "stroke" is in this case a mask,
1. draw black stroke layer at 2 pt stroke.
2. duplicate it put it on top
3. reduce stroke (mask) in the top layer to 1 pt
4. convert bottom strokes to fills (object>path>outline strokes)
all together you get 4 layers:
top - color reveal strokes zero opacity
second - thinner strokes set to zero opacity
3rd - black strokes
4th - color fills
I've attached my sample,
