TransportarOnline Raises Investment from Ex DHL Exec Latin American logistics and shipping marketplace TransportarOnline has received an undisclosed amount of angel investment from former DHL’s CEO for Global Customer Solutions, Hans Hickler, the company announced today. Previously known as MercadoTransporte, the online freight broker was one of the finalists at TNW Latin America Conference’s Startup Battle (see a video of their pitch). It was also during our event that the team met Hickler, who became an advisor to the company before investing in it. According to TransportarOnline CEO, Federico Vega, this contribution goes well beyond capital. “Hickler brings over 25 years experience in logistics management to the company, which is very valuable for us,” he says. Hickler’s investment comes in addition to the $185k seed capital that TransportarOnline had already received from NXTP Labs, Start-Up Chile, Fundación Chile and its own founders.

Japan's DoCoMo Partners 500 Startups on Japan Incubator Japanese operator NTT DoCoMo has announced that it is investing in 500 Startups, as part of a deal that sees it launch its own mobile-focused incubator in Japan in partnership with the US company. DoCoMo revealed plans for its own startup-focused venture last October, and it says that the project is worth 10 billion yen — that’s approximately $109 million today, though the conversion was $125 million when first announced last year. Now the operator has confirmed that it has launched the program today, via a new operating company and with support from 500 Startups. The new DoCoMo incubator program is focused on tablet and smartphone related startups in Japan, as you’d well expect from a mobile operator. The deadline for applications for the DoCoMo Startup Village closes on March 11. “Additional support will be offered to companies that develop promising services or technologies, including collaboration with DoCoMo services and sales promotion,” the company’s announcement explains.

Modeling I used a simple head model for the first modeling. When I was satisfied with the result, with the base proportions of Eastwood´s face, I used this highpoly model for modeling a new topology with using the great Polyboost scripts. New Topology Then I made a simple rig for the head and turned his head to different position, then I took this model to Mudbox and added all details like wrinkles, pores and etc. Final Head Simple head and facial animation

21 Mind-Blowing Hyperreal Paintings As an outgrowth of photorealism, hyperrealism is a relatively new school of painting that creates the illusion that you're actually looking at a photo. With new technology in cameras and digital equipment, artists have been able to be far more precision-oriented. While photorealist painters tend to imitate photographic images and will consciously omit details, the hyperreal painter is more literal, incorporating photographic limitations such as depth of field, perspective and focus. I've put together some of the most amazing hyperreal paintings that will make you question whether you're actually looking at a painting or a photograph.
