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 -

I had more than a few requests to somehow incorporate Cydonia and the Face on Mars in one of my pieces.

1) It is a very small region and not seen clearly from space. I'm a space artist. Get it?

2) The Cydonia Plain is directly under the disc portion of the middle ship between the dark blotch and the rough patch of little mountains. In that plain, the upper right hand corner of it is what folks requested.

3) This is a 16K texture map of Mars. This is as big as I dare go with my computer. 32K is the biggest. But it requires me to have at least 2 1080 GTX graphics cards and RAM for days to stitch together thousands of TIFF files to get zoom in quality. Maybe when I have 10,000 subscribers on my Patreon. Right now, I have 17. lol...

4) To have me deviate from doing the art that I want to do requires a commission. If you want to see something different from me than what I am producing for me, pay up. I don't do unpaid requests. I'm nobody's free show.

SYNOPSIS -

We've looked at the Earth quite a bit lately. Let's take a break from Mama and head to Mars! Welcome to Phobos Station. I will take a few pieces to let my imagination wander for a while and explore Mars a little more closely. In the spirit of SpaceX and Elon Musk.

This'll be a hoot!

SYNOPSIS -

Lit by the approaching Sun above and the city lights below, the clouds at the terminator are set ablaze and glowing by morning's arrival.

This is my semi weekly Earth and Moon practice that I obsess with to try and nail an ISS-like look at our beautiful planet. I like the clouds this time. For the most part, everything looks pretty clean. Still room for improvement.

SYNOPSIS -

A lazy river quietly slips its way through the massive and eroded sandstone monuments of the American Desert Southwest. I want to live right here...

No Google Earth this time. You can't get close ups with it without it being heavily pixelated. Everything here is procedurally generated and modeled.

patreon.com/erikstitt


SYNOPSIS -

Silverwood Lake State Recreation Area in Southern California...

I'm not selling prints or wallpaper here. I'm sharing something now that the software technology is at such a point that I can. A personal project.

This is a 3D model of my childhood home where I grew up and lived until I was 18 and left for the Army. On the cusp of the San Bernardino National Forest and the Mojave Desert. You are looking South, Southeast across the lake toward Hesperia, CA. That little dark patch in front of the bottom UFO is where I lived and where most of my experiences and weirdness occurred.

The Mojave is an eerie place at times. Very mysterious.

patreon.com/erikstitt


SYNOPSIS -

This is not a photo. This is a 3D model of the Grand Canyon I created using a free and powerful addon for Blender called BlenderGIS. It allows you to open Google Earth within Blender and zoom in on topography and cities and then extrude the selection as 3D data. It is accurate for height and displacement. But there was still quite a bit of work to do with textures and color. This will be a regularly used tool that I can offer my clients.

Blender 2.81
Adobe Photoshop CS6
Wacom Cintiq 22HDT
Copyright 2020 Erik Stitt
erikstittart.net
patreon.com/erikstitt


SYNOPSIS -

Sometimes I'll create art just 'cuz. This time I wanted to see the light play through the Earth's atmosphere through all of my filter and node settings which I have set very accurately to the Earth itself. So, at sunset, the Sun would actually do this to the clouds at the terminator line.

Blending Art and Science. My two favorite realms of thought and practice.

Wacom Cintiq 22HDT
Copyright 2020 Erik Stitt
erikstittart.net
patreon.com/erikstitt


SYNOPSIS -

Occasionally I have to do a simple "portrait" of the Earth and Moon. Why? Well, yes, she's beautiful but mostly, it's my obsession with planetary cloud formations from low orbit view. I struggle, strive and grimace my way into trying to get just the right amount of displacement, the right amount of bump with just the perfect textures and node combinations and then push/pull the hell outta the lights and darks in Photoshop.

Still not satisfied.

Another look at my beaten Space Station.

This ain't yo' elite Elon Musk, Bob Bigelow affair.

Long live duct tape.

I apologize if my art seems repetitive. That's the Autism, folks. Can't be helped. I tend to hyper focus on a scene or subject until my broken head deems it as perfect as I can get it.

SYNOPSIS -

This is a milestone piece...

How? I realized that as far as "making it" as an Artist in the industry, I'm probably not going to. I've been at this for almost 40 years. By this time I always imagined I would be retired, hang up the brushes, pencils and stylus and fish every day. Well that isn't happening either. So, I haven't made it. I'm going to stop trying to make it. Stop submitting everywhere. Stop trying to please a large audience that isn't paying for a damn thing. I have 15 regularly paying people. My patrons on Patreon. I get $60/mo on my art.

Time to start making art just for me. If you like it, bonus. If not, oh well.

No more Aliens either! Done with 'em!
