You depress me.  I love sci-fi creation and worldbuilding, but I acknowledge that I will never be anywhere near as good at it as you are.

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.

Actually it isnt biological in the traditional sense, it is engineered. Its internal structures are reinforced by fields and other strange effects.

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"?

Thanks! It is usually a space faring organism so its mass is more easily supported off planet.

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

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

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.

That makes a little more sense. Here I was, imagining this behemoth getting larger and larger until it's cellular structure reaches critical mass and begins nuclear fusion and expands into a life-giving star…

Artificial organism, though. That begs the question: who built this entity? :P

Is this a god? If I were a primitive culture, I'd surely worship this behemoth. It's sheer size — let alone it's immense strength and intelligence — would warrant such respect and awe. Amazing work as always, Alex. It's always a pleasure to see your work.

Some thoughts upon species building: This creature, as it nears the end of its lifecycle, begins to reproduce. It creates one or two young. Just before it dies, it splits and each half forms into a shell for its baby/babies. Then, it locates a good star and accelerates towards it. When the creature reaches the star, it forms more into a heatshield. Then, the baby enters orbit.

Well, maybe I shouldn't think of it that way... just I tend to write sort of badly. After thinking it over, I am left with an idea of a creature similar to this one, at least in the respects of being able to build a human and being able to move through space. The only problem is that its only food is a major export of Terran minerals that are not found within its system. The creature is rather fast, roughly at maximum 0.99995 C, and there is a major trade route through its system. The creature used to raid Terran craft via a skewer-like appendage that could penetrate craft (with the side effect of heavily damaging/destroying them), but it soon figured out this would get it in trouble a lot more if it did things differently. (the trade route is policed, of course, but they tend to allow minor theft of some not-very-useful but abundant minerals.) So, the creature decides to build a human, as the humans have found no aliens, at least not that they know of. The human raids the ships, stealing as much as he can find, and returns them to his master/the creature. The creature treats the human more as a slightly less than equal pet. However, if the human finds something he likes and the creature doesn't need it, he gets it. It's an interesting concept, but I don't have anything past that. It's very hard for me to come up with a turning point or climax or problem in a story.

It can do, sometimes. Parts of its internal anatomy are independant entities, and it can make and destroy new beings at will for all sorts of purposes
