I waffle between wanting to do 2D work and 3D work for a living. It's been mostly 2D the last couple years, but lately I'm thinking 3D is a better choice for me, for a number of reasons I won't go into. Anyway, I've had the chance to try out a 13" Cintiq for 2D work for a good long while, and I just don't like it as much as my normal Intuos. For whatever reason, I'm way more accurate on an Intuos, especially for detail work / fine linework. Maybe, *maybe* the Cintiq is better for thumbnailing, or getting overall rough sketches down a little more accurately because of the slightly better hand-eye coordination, but in general I'm just not seeing a huge benefit like others seem to, you know? And therefore I'm not seeing why I should spend a premium on it.
Given that, is there any compelling reason for me to get a Cintiq for 3D work, for sculpting or texture painting or [X]? Or am I fine sticking w/ a standard tablet? I searched for relevant threads here, didn't really see anything.
