This is the ark from the planetoid Noah III, sailing away on sunwinds after Super Nova. The people from Noah III are kind of debil, so they put their rescue pods where the sunwinds blow.

This Noah's Ark goes offworld
The description from the original thread:
"I am partial to futuristic looking things, so naturally my inclination was to interpret "Noah's Ark" in that fashion. I thought about an alien ecosystem needing to flee their dying planet via spacecraft. The pods (green) lift species from the crumbling surface and they're off to rebuild somewhere else.
When it comes to the forms... I tried to blend specific elements, though very subtly, into the design of the ship. The main section is based on the traditional hull of a nautical ship, typically a "U" or "V" shape. The upper section (or bridge) is actually based on a "cross" design (not trying to be religiously insensitive or anything of the sort, so I hope people don't see it as that). I had the thought, "What would the designers of this ship think, when presented with this task?" Maybe they'd start the design utilizing some symbolic form elements related to the biblical tale, and then actually call it, "Noah's Ark". Hope that doesn't offend anyone"
I know it is after a deadline, but topic is still open so i decided to post my work. Of course if it is to late, just remove it
Ok this turned out crap, my first totally wacom/ps made peice, so I guess (and pray) it will only get better from here. Basically its just a dark blurry mess. Im posting it here so people can crit the shit out of it and hopefully something good will come out of this abomination.

Far beyond deadline. But as sad by Ros1 if its to late remove it.
The poll is finally up, just a few notes:
JanJager: No worries for being a little late, since I'm a little late myself. One little note though: since IDW is not necessarily an illustration challenge as much as a design challenge, so if most of your design is hidden behind the illustration it doesn't read as well.
New round will be up soon!
elemedi - you rocked this one!
awesome work guys
