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.

I, For one, Would love to see a full body image of this creature, It's somehow...Intimidating, Seeing as how it's that big! But oddly innocent, Benevolent.

Yeah, That would be awesome! Seeing as how this thing is young, And yet is making clouds and is bloody massive, Maybe we could see it as an older being?

On second thought it's not possible, in that case there would have been someone holding on top screaming: Leeroy Jenkins!!! Problem?

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.

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

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

This. Thing. Is. HUGE!!

Does it originate from that world in the picture or does it travel through space? Another question: is it artificial in some way?
