Digital Painting/Texturing Tablet Suggestion?
First and foremost, heyo, I'm new here. ^-^ I've been messing with CG modelling and digital painting for several years now, but only very on and off, never really took any courses or watched tutorials and just self-taught myself everything.
I'm now finally giving in, and starting some courses here, and I've finally convinced myself that I do really need to practice a lot more digital painting if I'm wanting to work on some 3D models that aren't all made of photorealistic, computer generated textures (namely from Substance).
Now, because of this, I've started wondering what tablet would be best for both creative workflows (painting and model texturing). I currently have a Wacom Intuos Draw, though I've always had difficulties getting used to the need for heavy hand-to-eye coordination. I have finished one (1!) art piece a while back, though it took a while to get used to the tablet (and I still haven't...), so I'm wondering if it would be particularly worth saving up for a Cintiq, for example?
A few years back I had a Huion pen display, though it turned out to be a relatively poor decision as it slowly developed a multitude of dead pixels and eventually stopped working; but I did have a much easier time drawing with it. I feel like pen displays might also really facilitate 3D texturing directly on the models, perhaps?
Basically, my question is just: should I save up for a Cintiq (~$650) even though I haven't practiced digital painting or texturing much at all, though really want to push myself to work on it? Would it make my workflow much easier?
