Is this a species from Chriirah? The same planet as the Birrin?

It may visit Chriirah, but it certainly isnt from there.

This reminds me of kind of how I wanted the dragons in the story I'm writing to be. They are beings whose consciousness resides in a crystalline 'Heart' and each of them creates their own form based on how they want to appear. They are immortal so long as their Heart is not destroyed ans so most of them spend their lives exploring the world, mastering sciences, the arts of magic and the interactions between them.
Humans think that the dragons are just vastly powerful but in truth their power comes from their understanding of the universe and their careful application of magic to that, as opposed to human mages, who effectively throw power at it and pray.

I love gigantic, strange beings like this. The 'young' you put in the description makes me curious, and I wonder what this creature will become. Great job showing the sense of scale too with the huge clouds in the background.

Well, maybe I'll put my two cents here too. I think the being is one that continues to evolve the more knowledge it gains. =)

Partly true! New information feeds its mind and as it grows it develops new concepts to expand and change itself. 
Reply
:iconbahamutdeusmodus:
BahamutDeusModus Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2015  Professional General Artist
Oh, even more interesting! So it alters itself based on the more knowledge it gains; this means it could become anything, based on what it discovers first and perhaps how it feels to alter itself. =) Cool concept! :la:

Ouch, Hopefully its internal structures don't collapse. I love contrasting proportions and this is certainly an interesting organism. Just one question is it releasing water vapor through the holes in its "head"?

:iconabiogenisis:
Abiogenisis Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
And indeed, just water.

:iconabiogenisis:

Actually it isnt biological in the traditional sense, it is engineered. Its internal structures are reinforced by fields and other strange effects.
Reply
:iconperiodiccrafter:
PeriodicCrafter Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2014
So it was genetically engineered in a sense but also using some inorganic methods of creation, by a much higher intelligence than that of the human race. The picture looks amazing i love how you put the large "head" in the midground and then the tendrils wrapping around the background, looks really good.

I personally can't think of too many fictional organisms larger than this. THe only ones that come to mind are Any Deep Hunter soace bound organisms, scp-169, andafew other space bound cratures. It may sound like a lot, but there are millions smaller. ANyways, I love this :D

The title says 'Second Instar', does it mean this being has a previous form, and might get a next one? Either way, beautiful, fantastic creature.

I will probably revise its instar number to a later one, but yes they re-invent themselves in 'moults' frequently.
