Latent potential uncovered, Imperialdramon has one extra form. Giant mecha! He looks much more heroic than his former mode.
While not as extensive as Paildramon, this drawing took a bit more time in vectoring since getting the correct shapes and proportions became a little awkward.
This painting also shows the most extensive texture use to date. I wanted the character to suggest that it's had a worn-and-torn history. The cannon has a granite-looking surface, the shoulder parts are thick stone and his dragon head ages with some cracks.
Oh, and also, I changed the pose here and there. I decided on having him float to suggest a rise in power and might but also to separate the pose more from previous paintings.
