This composition goes with the Gemini piece recently posted, and as current shown in my avatar.
This one has some Taurus symbolism buried in it, though it's not represented as strongly for this sign as is with the Gemini piece. It's a little
Are Taurians subtle?
I really know very little about the zodiac, or astrology, so, it's a bit of a task attempting to make representation on such.
Anyway, I'm taking a break from this piece, leaving it at this stopping point to gain some distance and perhaps new perspective when I look at it
again to decide whether I'm doing more with it, making changes, or what.
In other words, this is WIP, but, closing on the final stages.

Eh. Dems dat. Get access to the full sized 45MB file at native resolution and well, you'll get a feel for how OCD I can be with super fine detail.
Suggestions, and constructive criticisms are welcome, but, please try be nice. Trolls are nothing new, so, yeah; *yawn*, won't be the first or last

Since this is still technically a WIP any really brilliant suggestions may be added, or potentially turn the piece around.
I'm currently entertaining surrealism ideas with adding a herd of stampeding miniature bulls in the foreground, following the track of the planetary
Another possibility is to design a small spaceship for the model, park it in the background close by, and then add some longhorns affixed to the
'hood' of the craft like some people use to like doing to customize a Cadillac(?).
Taurus. Bull. what can I add/change or do to give it a more Taurian context without spoiling it?
Does each zodiac sign have color associations? Numbers? other loose associations?
