Loading Artist

A Self Portrait

September 24, 2012

I made a quick alternate comic to describe the back story to this one: Here you go. Mind’s been a bit blank what with all the stress of Armageddon coming up and all, so much to do, so I thought hey writers drink to get ideas, I’ll try it too! This is what happened.

Goodnight.

    Hey, I was wondering, how did you make your site? Do you have a host, or did you make it from scratch? Thanks

    1. Gregor says:

      Hi, I’m hosted with Dreamhost, and I use WordPress with Comicpress.

  12. Mr.Turulu says:

  13. Fausto Ramos says:

    The downfall of a great man… STOP BEING SO SAD, ITS NOT HEALTHY! And your making me sad too! :(

  14. Joe says:

    hey gregor, i’m taking a graphic design class at my local community college, and i was wondering, what program do you use to create comics?

    1. Ducky says:

      He uses Photoshop.

      1. Joe says:

        okay, what version of photoshop? the computers here have both cs3 and cs5. which one would be better for someone starting out as a graphic designer/webcomic artist?

        1. Gregor says:

          I use CS5 but it doesn’t really matter what version you use. The later the better though, I guess.

          1. Joe says:

            Thanks, I’ll keep practicing!

  15. Dave says:

    This is so awesome I want it to be my avatar…..

  16. Abdullah says:

    Hi, I’ve know Loading Artist for a couple of months, but didn’t read the comics regularly. I have read all your comics today. From beginning to end just in 2hours. I want to let you know that you are really awesome. More people deserve to see your comics. Continue with your awesome work! :)

    1. Crazy Diamond says:

      Yup agreed

  20. Omega Lairon says:

    I want some of whatever it is you’re drinking there… not because it looks pleasant by any means, but only because I tend to get all laughy and wiggly when I get my drink on, not… THAT.

    Even still, it’s hauntingly beautiful. Hell, even the bonus comic looks great.

  21. Bill Murphy says:

    You look so sad… NEED A HUG!? :P

  22. Mango says:

    STILL looks so damn good <3

  23. captnfab says:

  24. Dema says:

    Man, you look like you’re in some serious need of some cheering up. SIX FLAGS! LET’S GO.

  25. Dmitry says:

    Is this his own hand to the left? How did it get there, from the right side? :)

    1. Patches says:

      That’s kinda what I was thinking…I was massively confused…and visiting the comment section didn’t help. ;)

  26. Xavier says:

    You look like you’re in serious need of sleep :-)

      1. Raleigh Brecht says:

  28. You know, this could be used as his alter ego in future comics ! :]

  29. Noam says:

    Is that a portal? His hand is almost scratching his back.

  30. dude says:

    1. Taekwondodo says:

      Sounds like a superhero… he’s a really high flier, but he leaves a sweet-smelling smoke trail everywhere he flies.

  32. Xilonix says:
