What do you use?
Is having a display a must have in your opinion? Or do you prefer to work with something like an Intuos?
Should you always go Wacom? Or has chinkshit caught up?
How many levels of pressure sensitivity do you like to have?

>What do you use?
Intuos Pro M
>Is having a display a must have in your opinion?
Nope, but it's personal preference. I'd rather not have my hand obscuring a quarter of the screen, and also have my own pick of display. Tablet displays aren't exactly the best in many aspect relative to the average AH-IPS display.
>Should you always go Wacom? Or has chinkshit caught up?
I've always had preference for Wacom, but you don't have to spend a lot if you don't want to, sculpting doesn't seem like the kind of thing that heavily benefits from a top-tier tablet as much as drawing does.
>How many levels of pressure sensitivity do you like to have?
I believe it doesn't matter as much for sculpting as it does in drawing/painting 2D art.
>>
>What do you use?
Some shit Wacom 6-incher that's almost 6 years old now.
>Is having a display a must have in your opinion? Or do you prefer to work with something like an Intuos?
Not necessarily a must, but it's definitely welcome. Would undeniably choose a tablet with a screen (actually, one of the many laptops with pen support) over a tablet that doesn't have one. I think it's quite the different experience, since a tablet screen is more WYSIWYG while just drawing on a screenless tablet is more hand-eye coordination.
>Should you always go Wacom? Or has chinkshit caught up?
Honestly, haven't been looking much at the market lately. But I do think Wacom's more of the Apple of tablets, steadfast products that are the "professional's choice" being sold at perhaps a nearly unreasonable markup compared to other choices. It's been 4 years since I've looked at tablet options, and even then people still sung praises about the so-called "chinkshit" tablets (well it's more of they were about reliable as a Wacom would be), so I'd imagine things have caught up since then.
>How many levels of pressure sensitivity do you like to have?
Never really mattered to me. I guess below 1024 would be a bane. All the market options now seem to be pushing 4096 anyway.

Remember I asked about texturing too.

I'm guessing most people here probably use Substance, but I'm interested in knowing the essentials for hand-painting models.

And I never said anything about sculpting, either (am 641060). You ought to know, tablets are incredibly general-use. There's no direct specificity nor specialisation to them, one tablet won't be better at texturing than the other, nor are there "special sculpting tablets" (as much as marketing may say; they're really just different software bundles).
It seems like your question is ultimately about skill, which I'll say to that: if you know how to colour with pencil and paper, you'll know how to colour digitally. It'll take some time to get used to (and said time will be shorter if you get one with a screen), but ultimately the fundamentals are the same. Hell, it's probably easier to digital paint than to paint with real brushes and paints, since you have access to a whole spectrum of colours, all the (virtual) brushes you could ever need, and best of all: an undo button.

>best of all
it's actually the worst of all, undo breeds incompetence and false confidence. if you do more than 5 undo in one minute you have a problem
>>
>>641079
Contrarian, aren't ya? Look, I get the merit in your statement but it's like saying cars are bad because it breeds sedentary laziness. It's a perfectly acceptable means of convenience, and while you're right that we shouldn't take it as a crutch, it does deserve acknowledgement for being an overall benefit to workflows that led to better results in a results-oriented field.

A smoll wacom
>Is having a display a must have in your opinion?
No, I'm ok without that
>>Should you always go Wacom? Or has chinkshit caught up?
I maybe buy a xp pen because work without batery I think, all the others looks horrible
>How many levels of pressure sensitivity do you like to have?
that's more for a 2d oriented work I think, I don't really care ...

is parallax a big problem?

>>641056
Most important thing is buying a large or at least a medium tablet. Small tablets will hurt your work because of the decreased precision. otherwise it doesn't really matter too much what you pick.

I bought a 2018 Huion 22 Pro and I am fairly happy with it. In terms of drawing, it seems to be basically on par with the Cintiq at around 1/3 of the price. The lack of touch screen option, no pen eraser, cheap functionality for the express keys and lack of DisplayPort do make it obvious you're compromising the quality to get a better price, but since the drawing experience matters more than anything else, it is a very good deal.

desu, I hate the eraser end of Wacom's pens. I just use the pen end instead.
>>
>>641400
Yes and some people don't use express keys and others don't care about displayport. Just things a potential buyer might need to think about.
>>
Ugee m708.
It's chinkshit but really good chinkshit.
>>
Stay away from Monoprice op. Wacom's price tag is grossly inflated but I have never had one of their pads break on me.
>>
>>641645
newer wacoms have that fucking awful coating on the surface that works like abrasive for nibs
>>
>>641056
>What do you use?
Believe it or not, but I'm still happily using my original Intuos 2 I bought in 2002 or so. I never even changed the tip.

>Is having a display a must have in your opinion? Or do you prefer to work with something like an Intuos?
I think that depends on what you're used to and your preference. I personally don't need it, but I can understand the benefits of each.

>Should you always go Wacom? Or has chinkshit caught up?
See first answer. I wouldn't know. :^)

>How many levels of pressure sensitivity do you like to have?
I think this is by far the biggest meme in existence of tablets. Today's tablets have a billion pressure levels and all kinds of useless gimmicks. IMHO the only thing you need is a tilt recognition and a few hundred pressure levels.
>>

Stick some smooth plastic over it.
>>
>What do you use?
Wacom Intuos 3
>Is having a display a must have in your opinion? Or do you prefer to work with something like an Intuos?
Nope
>Should you always go Wacom? Or has chinkshit caught up?
I've only ever used Wacom because they're what I've gotten for free here and there.
>How many levels of pressure sensitivity do you like to have?
1 when sculpting, 3 when drawing
