Sorry if there was a thread in the past for this. I searched the forums and I didn't find anything come up-- unless I missed it.
I was wondering if anyone knew of a good possible cintiq substitute that's not crazy expensive? I'm a really good artist, and I've always been the best of my class even through college, and I dunno I guess I just feel like I deserve something in this world. >_< I don't really have a lot of money, and honestly I'll likely never be able to save the money for one due to bills/rent etc. Every time I think I'll have extra money, it tends to go to something more important than what I aspire and love to do. I do have a regular drawing tablet I've had since 2006, but I dunno, it just doesn't take the cake like on screen drawing tablets do. It's an Intuos 3, and I do love it to death, but there's just no subject from the on screen art tablets I've experienced via friends. Realistically I won't even draw with it, because I'd rather draw with traditional media since I'm actually right there on the sheet of paper/canvas I'm working with. I just really miss digital art, but yeah I'm stubborn in that regards. I didn't even know if there were tablet PCs, etc that could substitute. I understand that I'll never get a perfect substitute for the quality that I can find in a cintiq, but pressure sensitivity is important and what-not. My boyfriend said he could possibly help me out with getting one, and told me to do my research, so since this is one of my favorite websites... even though I just lurk instead of actually post, I figured I'd ask you guys of what knowledge you may have.
