Bullying the bull

OK. This one is going to need some extra explanation.

If you have ever visited Spain and made a road trip, you may had noticed there are some weird huge buul-shaped advertising posts. Yup, that's it.

I mean this. 14 m tall bull
Originally advertising for a brandy, nowadays they just stand with no ads. In fact, they were formally declared artistic heritage (hence the ads pulled out) and became a distinctive sign all over the country.

Then, after this weird localism, you may better understand how cool and irreverent this piece is:

Ooops. Seen better days
This piece comes from Surus Creations, a wonderful little company with a small (for now) range constantly expanding. Go pay them a visit, their originality just blew my mind! This being a friend's gift, I couldn't wait to paint it!

Moooost interesting
They are currently working on more post-apoc stuff, I believe something suitable for the Punkapocalyptic game (I backed their crowdfunding, really looking forward to see those minis, they look cool!).

Here you have a scale comparison pic:

Don't you feel a little bit... displaced, brother sergeant?
Terribly easy to paint, it's quite rewarding. So another piece of scenery! Let's see what comes next!

    1. Haha, indeed it is! More meaningful and irreverent in the local context, but I guess that the idea is universal by itself, hehe.
