I'm helping out a good friend of mine by attempting to wire his basement. I successfully wired all of the outlets correctly. Now I'm attempting to run new a new fan and light to his bathroom. He has an exisiting light that I'm going to use the power off of it. The problem I'm having is that I want the bathroom switches to work independently of the rest of the room. Right now when I flip the main room switch to on, all the lights work, and I can turn off the bathroom light off. Obviuosly that is not what I want. This is what I've got to work with. The light I'm coming off of has 12-2 running to it. I've got 12-3 that I'm trying to take from it to go to the bathroom switches. Can somebody either give me a schematic or just simply tell me what wires go to what. All suggestions will be appreciated.

You cannot magically transform switched power into unswitched power. Take your power from an outlet, not this light.
