This was a watershed moment. Halfway through painting this image, I discovered the navigation window. Oh sure, I knew it existed, but I always figured it was unnecessary and a waste of desktop space. Little did I know that it would be the key to keeping an eye on values. Evidence really can't be displayed in this image. Sure, I started implementing better placed lights and darks immediately, but here, it was an afterthought. I'd still call this image poorly organized. But I learned a lot for future images.
Thoroughly Modern Millie is vastly different from its early incarnation as a movie. The basic plot is similar, but only two or three songs remain. Millie is a modern jazz-age working woman, applying for a job as a secretary with a boss she plans to marry. He is oblivious, and his 'Speed Test' is vaguely, if innocently, sexual.
