To compliment the Gemini piece posted before this one, I've put together this composition with some Taurus symbolism.

There may still be some work and details to go on this piece, but, for now, it's going on the shelf as 'finished' until some new ideas bubble to the surface and I can safely look at this with new eyes.

Below, you can see some progression of the piece:

Picking parts to make a new pose.  Inspiration piece posted to left of frame.
If anyone knows the name of the artist of the inspiration piece, please comment so that I may give the artist proper credit for their work, and recognition for the inspiration.

Head, arms, legs, hands and feet chosen, and stitched together for a pose that works.  
The pose in the inspiration piece is nice, and really well done, but, my interest wasn't in copying it; for to compose my own interpretation and vision of something similar.

 Making chrome/metallic outfits isn't too difficult, though it can be challenging at times.  It's never as simple as just using Filter->Sketch->Chrome.  Nope.  There's some tricks and a liberal amount of free-hand with some smudge thrown in as well as layering several different versions of a chrome skin over each other at differing opacity levels with blending mixed in.

Here she is with backpack jets, gloves, and collar with breathing apparatus on chest ready to mount the fish-bowl helmet.  At this point I bleed off some of the color vivacity by adding a layer of 0000 Black set on 50% opacity with Color Blending option selected on the layer.  
Desaturatiing a piece by using a black layer at the top gives more flexibility in the level of color in a piece without losing the original level of eye-stabbing color.

Here she is minus some few tweaks to color, vibrance, highlights, shadows, detail level and a few other bits.  I had a difficult time choosing between this one, and the one posted above.  In the end, I may revert back to this one, or, combine the two through a layer of opacity, or a blending option.

Just as above, so below.  Here's the 'final' outcome.  
The Stars of the Taurus constellation are arrayed from upper left corner diagonally down to the planet  with the water filled crater.  The Pleiades are also there on the 'shoulder' of the bull.
The shape of the constellation is then mirrored back up and diagonally to the right with the space elevator counterweight, water filled crater, energy bubble on satellite, fish-bowl helmet, and the V of the jet pack.
Further, if the crater sea on the planet is looked at closer, horns have been added up top for the Taurus symbol

Several additional changes have occurred as well with a recent update.

Silver and Gold, Duality, Gemini

This composition is in the works, though mostly finished.
It's in the place I want it, but, there's a few nagging things that still need redress.
The Gemini symbolism needs a little bit more work.
The hand in the lap with Blue/Gold is also bothering me, so, I may remove that arm/hand combo, and put in another arm/hand doing something else more active or visible.

Getting the model put together in one piece took well over a dozen frames stitched together.  The original piece, which I'll post at the bottom, was a close crop frame, capturing only the model's head, and upper torso; itself  coposite of two frames.

Greater detail added.  Getting close to finished.

still needs more detail ...

work in progress ... Left side mostly finished (choosing arm/hand at this point)

Here's the 'original' Frame/crop (also a composite)

Switching through and looking between this last (original) one and the final pose position, you can see where the knees blocked half of the model's bust, and abdomen.
The knees were removed, and you, of course see the results.  
Since the very top of the heads were chopped, new hair styles were also brought into play.
