The Storyboard Artwork Project
In this project, you create educational materials for schools. If you like to draw human figures or if you have Poser or DAZ Studio, you can join. The artwork that you will create in this project turns Tux Paint into a storyboarding program. The artwork is a human figure viewed from many angles. Once you have drawn the artwork, you mask the figures so they can be used as "stamps" in Tux Paint for kids to create storyboards for motion pictures. These special stamps allow Tux Paint to work like a
Stratigraphic Framework of Lower and Upper Cretaceous Rocks in Central and Eastern Montana
This USGS report focuses on Cretaceous rocks in Montana with respect to natural gas and coalbed methane.
