The cintiq improves speed a bit, you can do long strokes without any doubt, but still lack a bit of texture in the glass, so you will always feel alien, not the same as drawing on paper.

But i was really surprised how good the 22hd screen looks compared to cintiqs 24hd.
The blacks looks really dark, on my cintiq they look like 80% dark gray, but in that cintiq looked like 96% dark.
I was in love at first sight with that cintiq that didnt even look at 24 hds, she was the prettiest girl at the wacoms bar that night.
Like the first time you got trouble to get used to the intuos tablets, you will struggle a bit in learning curve with a cintiq like 3 days to get use to, in my case was a month because any digital coloring software was alien to me, but once you pass that sweet spot, you will not want to return to intuos, unless you want to be in a different room besides your studio.
So i recommend you to take the risk Sigma dog, if it can improve your art why not?, the world its getting really competitive this days.
And if you dont like it, you can resell it to me cheaper, MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH the true nature of the advice comes to the light.
There are no such things as bad art, just tight deadlines.
