Claudya Schmidt, also known as "Alector Fencer" is a professional artist, character designer and full time comic artist living in Berlin, Germany.
Her passion is to create fantasy art, comics, creatures and tinkers with the world-building of Yria, which is the name of the world where her graphic novel series take place in. She mostly works on her long-term comic project, Myre - Chronicles of Yria, of which she released Volume 1 in 2017.
Her most recent project, "Lores of Yria - The Haunter of Dreams", was completed and published in 2019 and is currently working on the second volume of "Myre".
In her past, she has worked for various private and professional clients, which helped her fortify her path in character design and illustration. Sometimes, Claudya delves into different realms of imagination. Such is with various creature designs and environment paintings. She tackles every challenge as a great chance for improving her skills in making her ideas more tangible.
"Art transcends time, distance and language. Little pieces of personal stories and experiences, rendered into visual concepts, where colour and shapes speak everything that we feel and makes us connect on a greater level. Where no language is needed to tell vast stories."
