Now days I'd recommend Clip Studio Paint (aka Manga Studio) on desktop and Procreate on iPad.

I'm so sorry for missing your comment!

My technique wasn't so good in 2009 so I wasn't using layers very much, I think on this one I had a separate layer for the background, the post and the feet, everything else was on a single layer (this is not at all sensible, these days I use lots of layers and layer folders to group those layers).

How I got it to look so sharp was by starting with a high resolution canvas and drawing any parts that needed to be detailed in with a very small airbrush. I varied the size of the airbrush much more than using the eraser to sculpt (I would be doing that around the edges of the body though).

These days I use Clip Studio Paint, which allows you to define masks or to only draw in areas where there's something drawn on the layer below. That saves a lot of time.

The Toclafane were actually created and used in several iterations of the series 1 episode Dalek, during the several months during which the Terry Nation estate was refusing to grant BBC Wales the rights to using the Daleks.
