Crazed biotech engineer and CEO, Noah Vanderbilt, built the Ark out of military surplus to transport genetic materials from all of earth's animal life to his secret arctic base, where he schemed to bring about World War III and the end of civilization. He didn't count on the intervention of an intrepid naturalist named Indiana Smith.

    National Geographic 23 sept 2006:

    ...Believers in the historicity of the Genesis account feel that finding the Ark would validate their views on a whole range of matters, from geology to evolution.

    "If the flood of Noah indeed wiped out the entire human race and its civilization, as the Bible teaches, then the Ark constitutes the one remaining major link to the pre-flood World. No significant artifact could ever be of greater antiquity or importance.... [with] tremendous potential impact on the creation-evolution controversy.

    Searches have concentrated on Mount Ararat itself, attracting attention in the 1980s and 1990s. It was not till an expedition in the summer of 2006 , when gobal warming caused a dramatic thaw in the high mountains uncovering an artifact that had lain buried beneath the ice and snow for thousends of years.

    This discovery by adventurer and self-styled archaeologist Ron Wyatt and his colleague David Fasold would fundamentally change the belief systems of our world.

    My wife, I will never see you disappear beneath the clouds of the gas giant. The Ark will fight to keep itself on course through the terrifying atmosphere of CC-823, and it should do so magnificently. We designed it to do just that. 6 hours later you will reach your destination near the core. I can only pray that our calculations will guide the future of our race to that distant planet circling a strong, young star. I pray that the 75,000 souls aboard will be safe, buried for a millenium beneath the protective clouds and pressure of the gas giant, an entire galaxy away from our own. Even now, as those that remain wait for the end, we do not fear it. In a thousand years or so, you and a generation of others will awake, emerge and witness a new galaxy... one in which you will build a new world. When you look up from whatever planet you will call your home, the sky will have one less star in it. But do not despair my love. My dream has sent you to safety... now you must dream for the both of us.

    Best way to store meat, Noah's giant freezer is one of a kind.
    Although it crashed in the mountains, the tale lifes on.
    A tale of animals in icecubes and a light so strong that it blocked out the sun.
    They had to have special suits on because when opened it could freeze an entire village.

    Strong rocket engines shock the earth when it powered up.
    It is said that Noah's freezer moved the earth when they blasted into orbit.
    That also happens to be the cause to our new ice age, the earth moved and... well you know the rest.

    On a mission to populate the galaxy, the 'ark' was caught in an unmapped asteroid belt in the Procyon 2 system, 17 light years from Earth. The 'ark' made an emergency landing on a desert planet. Damages to the ship ripped it into pieces on entry into the atmosphere and debris covered the planet for miles, leaving small groups of the crew to survive seperately for some time. The planet was founded and named by one of the crew 9 months before any survivors were rescued from the surface.

    An unknown "Noah's Ark" is found in the Arctic Wilderness. Chambers lining the craft hold a multitude of extraterrestrial humanoids in some form of cryogenic sleep.

    ''The white Ark' or, 'The white city''

    'Once flying high in the skys of our mother earth this city contained all kinds of living things. After the great destruction there was no further need of the ark. It was never created to land somewhere, so the citizens had to improvise. They crashed the city into some mountains and it bursted into two halfs. Today, 2149 years later, no human beeing is left on earth. War and destruction brought death about mankind, but the Ark is still there, waiting for her crew to return.'

    The ship code-named "Noah's Ark" was headed towards the planet Tirus to supply the human population with animals for farm labor. Unfortunately, the ship was sucked into the orbit of one of the planet's moons. It crash landed in one of the moon's deep canyons, never to be heard from again. There were no reports of any survivors from the craft. When the ship was finally discovered, suprisingly no human or creature remains were found.

    Although the presentation is not as slick as some of the others, I think the piece by Moniteur best expresses the core concept of the challenge.

    obviously my work didn't stand a chance, but it was fun joining this challenge, all these great art and intepretations really inspire to try harder and improve,

    I voted for Simonstalenhag's work as I liked the idea of the symbolic ark and flood, the others were really good as well, Gauis and Meme a close second and third...

    Voted for yAdam because the rendering and concept is just great.
    Special mentions:
    Meme : It's nice your really focused on the environment more. Unlike most of us did.
    Simonstalenhag : Nice concept, quite original thinking.
    Corrick : Great story!
    Notspecialist : Well, just great, I like the perspective and "industrial look" (?whatever.. the color theme). Can't wait for the movie to come out, hard to guess who will play the evil CEO.

    edit: Hey! you made a mistake in my name! anyway my name is old and cheesy, i'll change it soon.

    voted for gaius, although it looks nothing like Mount Ararat, probably more likely to be a view from Himalayans, i did very much like this image, the detail,and especialy the idea of adding the climbers in, and basicly the whole colour sceme, i could defenatly imagine seeing this in the national geographic. A close second would be elements, i like how you created the whole traditional biblical look, i think the lack of colour in the trees let it down a little.
    All in all, this was a good round, great topic and it had plenty of different ideas. Only got one suprising crit here realy, Chaos why is mine in the poll? its unfinished, lol

    Hi all,

    Wonderful to see so many entries.

    This was a very difficult choice. I really like Yadam's and I really like

    Simonstalenhag's.

    Finally after looking at both images I decided to go with Simonstalenhag's.Wonderfullly painted and very nice lighting.Something very refiined about the image.
    Also the concept is cool too. I do like the Harsh environment and the polluted pool.

    Yadam: Really nice pallet and its a great image, rich pallet nice lighting.
    My only gripe and this only my opinon, is that the image lacks a definitive focal point. Where is the viewer supposed to be looking, is it the flag or the detailed section of the wreckage with NA on it.

    Anyway I cant spend all day cruising the forums I need to practice.

    Voted.

    Why does the viewer have to be looking at one particuler section? This is an environmental study and not an object study, so therefore shouldn't the environment as a whole be looked upon, and the eyes left to wander. I agree that if the image was called the leaping horse or the flag then the viewers focal point should be attracted to that one particuler area, however it isn't and therefore it shouldn't have to. The brief is Noah's arc last resting place, technicly speaking it shouldn't even have to have an arc in it.

    Thumbs up

    Generally speaking images do need a focal point. It's about composition.
    Be it a book cover, concept for a game or movie concept piece.

    Of course you can have an image where your eye wonders over it, but a lot artists would agree that the eye should be lead. What is the focus?

    Even in a 3d enviroment where the viewer has complete control over thier view point , attracters be it lighting or whatever are inserted to attract the viewer's eye.

    It just makes good sense, composition is a difficult skill master , all artists work hard at it.

    I know there is exceptions to this rule, and yes the concept of the ARk's resting place doesnt even need Ark, But regardless in my opinon and how I was taught, most images need and work better with a focal point or a series of focal points with varying degrees of importance.

    What Idea are you trying to sell in your image?
    Look at all the wonderful 5 star rated environments and images on these forums and guarantee 99.9% of them will have at least one focal point.

    Just my opinon.

    I agree with what your saying about composition gaius. I can't see my image through another persons eyes, but in my eyes my composition is pretty simple. To me it reads left to right, I intended the NA to be something of interest, but at a glance it doesnt stand out too much (to me anyway), So you would contunue to the little shelter and flag (after stopping at the n.a briefly), which a lot of things are pointing to. You can follow the wreckage around and in most ways it leads you back to the shelter. But if people aren't reading it in that way, then I've not done a successful composition

    Anyway, could have definately added more detail to the shelter to draw more attention to it. Cheers for the crit gaius.
