Welcome to Gaia! ::

I honestly do not suggest getting a cintiq 12....
It'll barely be any better.
I suggest getting a 22 if you are able to get it.

It does not make lineart any faster. Seriously. I have one, and I end up using the laptop mouse in Illustrator when I need to do clean lineart (admittedly, this is not often.) It only makes it easier to tell what you're doing over a normal tablet.

Pressure sensitivity doesn't mean cleaner lines. If you have a jittery hand, it means it'll pick up that crap too. Also it tends to screw up its calibration near the edge of the screen.

If you're only worried about lineart, the Cintiqs are not worthwhile for you.
I don't have a ton of experience with it,
but they have a few roaming around my school.
(unfortunately only when professors bring them in.)

Anyway, from the time I have playing around on them,
I can definitely say I personally want one. It was fantastic.
