Welcome to The Art of Erik Stitt


My name is Erik and I am an Autistic Artist and Illustrator out of Fort Collins, Colorado. I am fascinated and obsessed with Space Art and Space Exploration and I explore that myself to the best of my ability with my art.

I use Blender and Adobe Photoshop on a Wacom Cintiq 22 HDT to create my renderings.

All Wallpaper Downloads are FREE when you join my PATREON!


I am available for commissioned work. Please email me at: erikstittart@gmail.com for quotes.

SYNOPSIS -

Ducking into a narrow canyon for cover on a far off distant moon, a capital ship dodges an unknown enemy while a trio of Hornets keep a lookout.

I'm back! Good news? Bad news? I dunno. But, while not fully healed, the sciatica pain is now tolerable and manageable. Time to get back into the swing of things.

Here's an apology download for my annoying absence. Enjoy the Free Wallpaper!

SYNOPSIS -

The Earth of the future. The home of Celtic Cross Station.

Now, for some bad news. I'm going to take a break for a bit. For how long, I do not know. Over the last week and a half, I have developed a steadily worsening case of sciatica. I have severe pain from the small of my back to the ends of my toes down my right leg. I have not had any sleep to speak of in almost five days and there is NO comfortable position. I've been doing regular yoga stretches, using CBD Salves and edibles and LOTS of pain detachment meditation techniques. But, being hunched over a tablet or monitor creating art feels excruciating. I wish there was an alternative. Right now, I just need to recover.

I'm not quitting, just recovering and from what I've heard and read, recovering from sciatica can take a long time so, there's that.

I present to you the aptly named, Galactic Ship Oppenheimer........Forever known as the "Death Fish".

SYNOPSIS -

What can I say? I like rings! Ringed planets. Ring Stations.....just not rings in the bathtub. lol

I do think it's time to create a new Capital Ship. My ol' trusty rusty standby here is getting lonely. So, I will take a few days to do just that. The next piece will have a new spacecraft!

SYNOPSIS -

To insure their future security and safety, the Terra Machinians have built a massive fortified ring around their mechanical Earth. 

I'm sorry that it is such a long time between pieces. I'm working with a Radeon RX560 card and so everything is rendered with a CPU. This took 3.5 days to put together and 19 hours to render at 1500 samples with the Intel A.I. Denoiser. I am hoping to upgrade everything soon so that I can be creating short films with my models and pulling stills for Wallpapers and whatnot. Fingers crossed...

SYNOPSIS -

And even more environment practice. This'll be the last pure landscape for a while. I'm losing paid followers. Good grief, people are a fickle mess. I'm an artist! Why do I have to just create "this" or "that" instead of "ALL"?

Meh...

Anyhoo, this stuff is reading more like "Fine Art" and less like a "Cinematic Still" so, I tried something a little different and formatted it to be more of a fine art print.

I will start putting planets, aliens, spaceships and weird crap in them now before I lose anybody else. It wouldn't be so bad if I didn't need the money. But honestly, I could do this kind of Zen/Blissful art the rest of my life with no complaints. Sucks...

SYNOPSIS -

More environment practice!

Yes, I love isolation and seclusion. Very much so and again, inspired by places that I would seek out to acquire the same. I always made sure I was at least 50 miles away from any living soul and by myself. Sometimes for two weeks plus. 

Also, a reminder that I'm doing a few of these and then, eventually, I want to incorporate scifi/fantasy elements into them. Right now, I'm focusing on achieving absolute realism and pushing toward that and to be able to do it consistently and have it all be second nature......like the rest of my art. I want to spend time thinking about the composition......not the process.

SYNOPSIS -

Nope, not Scifi nor Space Art. Environment design practice. I want to do a few of these and then start putting scifi elements into them when I feel confident that I can consistently do this well or better.

This is inspired by the many UE4 Level Artists I watch on YouTube. One in particular stands out and his art just floors me; Jayson Kassis, AKA "Maverick" on YouTube. Best Level Artist out there.

This place is based on a handful of actual places that I would go to in my first marriage when I had a really good mad on......to do some "thunkin'". And I bet you said the title in Pooh Bear's voice!

SYNOPSIS -

A little alien had a little accident into a big stump...
Welcome to my next level of art! For the last year or so, I've been drooling all over YT videos of artists creating with Unreal Engine, Unity and Cryengine as well as World Machine. I find some of the exterior level art and design simply gorgeous. Now, I will be doing my best to create the same. I got a Quixel Megascans account, which a lot of these artists use, and the plug-in for Blender. Although EEVEE is a far cry from UE or Unity, it has potential. I built and rendered this entirely in EEVEE, Blender's Game Engine. I got a very photorealistic result. As always, I will get better with practice.

3D Objects Modeled, Textured and Rendered in EEVEE or assets from Quixel Megascans were used.
