2018 Edit!: I had this image sitting in the back of my head for way too long. I edited some things and ended up advancing it a bit further to please my visual needs. Enjoy! AG18

Original post:
Complete process for the second image from idea belonging to the previous worksheet to basic sketch. The concept of lost & found, was understood as found but ignored. The selected culture is San Agustín, an ancient culture, whose existence is only known for relatively small statues found near the wellspring of river Magdalena, Colombia. The particularity of ecuatorial cultures is their lack of monumentalism. I went ahead and understood that as a lack of monumentalism that has been found for now. I modified the place where this culture developed to envelop the totality of the Colombian territory, from Magdalena river to the Ocetá Highland marshes (páramo). The image was based on a picture I took while hiking.
