The Arq: Luxury Racing Yacht by AndrewCM The Arq: Luxury Racing Yacht by AndrewCM
The Arq is a luxury racing yacht. Designed by and built by skilled craftsmen with the intent of racing other wealthy contestants on long distance races in the utmost luxury, the Arq was built for one purpose above all else, blinding, bewildering speed. Any captain who could acquire a ship of this caliber however, could use it for many noble or nefarious purposes besides simple sport.

Out of the current semi-finalists, this has the most chance to get through IMO. Simply because of the idea behind it, if they're going to go with your idea - usually gift ships have no armaments and serve no specific purpose (aside from Primae we recently got), so a ship with just speed and looking good has good chances of winning, that's what I think.

I wish that there were more of a 3/4 view to see what's going on. Cool design, though.

I have a number of sketches in a lot of different view I will post after the contest is over. Oddly enough this one kind of showed everything I wanted to show the best despite being a rather conservative view. I wish I would have spent more time on the background though. Waaay too many stars. Expect more sketches in pen/copic after the contest is finished.

Exactly what I was thinking when I wrote "nefarious purposes"

There was the Opus Luxury Yacht years ago, a very limited edition ship given I think for some tournament or other in game thing. So the concept would probably fit into the game.

Given its nature though it would be easy prey to pirates.

I saw that and thought perhaps a more mainstream yacht would be popular. Hopefully it will be able to outrun pirates.
