I also like drawing with my Cintiq, and also my iPad Pro. You should check out Serif’s DrawPlus and/or Affinity Designer. The brush tools are superb but different than Illustrator. Illustrator recently began to dabble with a new type of brush (very old actually but new for Adobe) where the brush is a vector path with a bitmap image mapped along it. This is the kind of brush that Serif pretty much perfected. Like I said, Adobe dabbled with it and seems to have forgotten about it. It never gained any further features. But this brush type full blown in Serif programs. Most of my drawing is done in one or the other. DrawPlus on my PC with my Cintiq, and Affinity Designer on my iPad Pro with Apple Pencil. Another program that you should check out is Microsoft’s discontinued Expression Design. It’s free to download now directly from Microsoft and it has the same kind of brush as Serif’s programs.
You may want to try inkscape, and actually do the trace, because its preview is not perfect (saving processing power)I know illustrator does so much much better is their auto trace program no one can argue this point
