I mean... It does have its ups and many advantages, but it costs a lot of money. 
+ side

It will help me improve my smudge, pentool, and drawing skills over PS.

Holly $h*t the price @_@

 

What say you, my fellow OC brothers?

But it's not neccecary or anything.

It is very handy for drawing smudging etc..

(btw perhaps you are looking at the wrong type of tablets do yours are like a second screen?)

Probably something like this

how is this even a question? Hell yeah you NEED a graphic tablet 

Also get the Bamboo Pen, it's really cheap and it's really good and it's the same I used for years

If you have an iPad, you might want to look into picking up a stylus for that as well, their only around $10, and if you pair it with a screen sharing app, it's pretty much as good as that £600 tablet that muppie linked in the beginning. The only downside is that most of the pens aren't pressure sensitive, and you have to get used to not touching it with your hand.

Oi

Didn't see you guys commented.

@Baka- It isn't as simple as that. Yeah I have somewhat rich parents, but I myself, am pretty poor. I live at my parents and such, but I don't want to be an economic burden. I'll ask my dad for it than :P 

 

@Fireclaw- I do not have an iPad, but those things costs like 20$ nowadays aren't they? Also I kinda want a pressure sensitive pen, considering I use only pressure sensitive settings with the pentool.

Don't not buy an old iPad apple makes it so you can't download new apps and such.
Also you don't use pressure for the pen tool ;P

Yes I do. When I use my pen-tool I check the pressure.

When you use the pentool, it uses simulated pen pressure. You don't need actual pressure to use it, and it makes no difference if you have it or not.

Pen pressure only matters when you are using the brush or pencil tool.

 

That being said though it's pointless if you don't already have an iPad, because a real graphics tablet will always be better. I just mentioned it because it's a nice alternative if you already own an iPad and don't want to shell out the money for a graphics tablet.
