So here it is, I'm finally doing it! After years of using Painter, I've decided to give Photoshop a real try. This piece started as a brush experiment/emulation study using one of Aurelie Neyret's marvelous illustration (Aurelie, tu es fantastique!) and it evolved into a quick illustration.
I'm liking Photoshop so far! Nice textural brushes. I'll keep using it.
