10th Anniversary Armada by dyemooch 10th Anniversary Armada by dyemooch
10th anniversary of Armada!
David Kaye and Gary Chalk will be there, and I'm a huge Armada fan(I figure everyone will be focusing on the Beast Wars aspect of those two), so I did this up.
Just like the Gilvezan print, this print is supposed to be in the style of the Armada cartoon.

It wasn't my original idea, but I got something done for it in time! There are still three other prints I need to get done for Botcon! D:!!

Optimus Prime, Megatron, and Transformers are property of Hasbro/TakaraTomy

Armada was my first experience with Transformers!

I grew up with transformers Armada and I now have a box set of the whole series. I'd say my favorite characters are both Thrust and Sideways. Both of them have a lot of fun opportunities for writing out their personalities.

Optimus Prime: It's over megatron! Megatron: No prime it's not over yet!

Oh lordy, this show. Got me into Transformers it did, and it is my favorite glitchy pos

At last, my two favorite Armada characters in one piece of art. Armada is still my favorite TF series. I love the way it made Optimus a being of pure light, and Megatron a total badass that still had a sense of humor ("Wouldn't you say, Squidhead?" lol)

OMG, it was by Armada I got into Transformers. I remember when they showed the anime on TV here in Sweden.

Armada was what got me intro Transformers, and though it may seem flawed or annoying at times, I still like it.

Stand down Megatron!

Armada is what introduced me into Transformers.. I didn't realize it was the 10th year anniversary! Boy how time flies..!
TronmanZ Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2012
A fitting tribute to the most underrated and one of the best Transformers series ever.

Even though I'm not a fan of all things Armada, I gotta say I've always liked the Lowrider Prime truck design.

Plus, he has a special place in my heart as the first Prime I was able to save up for and pre-order so I didn't have to keep stalking the toy stores.

...Man, I can hardly believe it's already been 10 years.

Now THIS is where I first came into Transformers ^^

has it really been 10 years... man i love Armada i need to rewatch it
SherbertTCat Featured By Owner May 4, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Aka Pokeformersmon.
TronmanZ Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2012
and it was, and is, way better than Bayformers.
SherbertTCat Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Like it or not, Bayformers gave the franchise a much needed boost. All Armada did was ensure that Transformers would be shit anime fodder for years to come.
TronmanZ Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2012
All that Bayformers did was make me lose faith in Transformers, if not for Animated, War for Cybertron, IDW and Prime.
Neo-Draco Featured By Owner May 2, 2012
Aww yeah! Armada!

Yeah, good times.
Neoconvoy Featured By Owner May 2, 2012  Student General Artist
Ah, Armada!

I remember the great expectation I had about Unicron Battles and Energon.

This has the techno shiny background and everything!
SaaKawa Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
This didn't get the love it should have. Armada was kickass!
Mediziner Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2013  Hobbyist Writer

Happy Birthday Armada!! :party: and you two, Optimus, Megatron!! personally I like Galvatron! :) but Meg's OK too. ;)
v-l-a Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2012
I've become Transfan and anime fan thanks to Armada, and it's one of my three favourite TF series :) Glad that some people still remember and treat Armada as something important enough to mention this anniversary.
whatwazthat Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2012
Oh wow! Yay for another Armada fan! XD this is very cool! Great job!

Starshot-seeker Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
woah! this pic is so cool!! :w00t: I like it so much and you did an awesome job, it looks exactly like the Armada cartoon style!!! (and the style of digital coloring I wish I could learn someday to do ^^;)

it's so really nice you remember that it's already 10 years from the Armada series, I think most of the transformers fans hate this series so that's why nobody do nothing for this :(

but I'm an Armada fan too, and I thank you so much for this :la:
Destron23 Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh, wow, this is simply amazing! I especially like the expression on Megatron's face! :D Also can't believe it's been a decade, I must have been 10 at the time. XD

Spot on to Armada's animation style!
MattMoylan Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Also this month, 10 years of Dreamwave Transformers comics!!!

Ah...well, it would have been heh.
dyemooch Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Those were fun days.
And I miss that page rate...
MattMoylan Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah, rough that IDW's page rates are so crazy low.
Caliber316 Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
Love it, dude. Armada got me back into TFs. Before that I hadn't cared about them since G1. Brilliant pic :D
gigglemeister Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012
Wowies, ten years old already? I kinda hope they'll commemorate the occasion by re-releasing some of the merchandise so I don't have to keep looking online for stuff...

Gosh, Prime being so small is funny. I recall a shot from the episode 'Tactician' where he was trying to grapple with Megs and he barely reached Megatron's chest XD I don't know if this is because Optimus is really that small or if it's due to animation errors
Combatkaiser Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012
so any announced 10th anniversary armada stuff?
Ha-HeePrime Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yea, Antler-tron! (Also a secret Armada fan here) I can't believe it's only been 10 years.
sparklearmy Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012
I wish I could've watched you finish this!!! I'll have to watch the livestream capture. lol REALLY love the shading in this.. It's light and colorful and really looks like a screen cap from the Armada series.. I really liked that series, too! It got even better when the A team animators stepped in. XD I really love the background, too! That kind of energetic streaming from the Minicon emblem.. Fantasticulous! You're amazing!
DreamingExperience Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2012
Oh Armada. You re-introduced me into Transformers after having only seen a tiny bit of the original. <333
