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.

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"?

Abiogenisis Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2014
And indeed, just water.

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

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

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

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.

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.

It is a god yes, though more in the australian native sense, a spirit, not all powerful.

Sorry, I thought this was a comment on The Birth of Fire for some reason :P

This entity is actually a very advanced artificial organism.

MrJmZack Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2013  Professional General Artist
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
