About Alector


I’m Claudya Schmidt, known as AlectorFencer. To me, art is an adventurous journey that brings so much joy and colour to my life. Ever since I was able to hold a pencil, I dreamt about telling stories with pictures. And every new picture tells the story about my journey as an artist. I want to share my experiences of pushing my own limits to be able to depict the stories I write.

For the past four years, I’ve been working on the graphic novel series, “ Myre - Chronicles of Yria” and published the first volume in spring 2017. Thanks to my wonderful supporters of my crowdfunding project in 2014 I was able to put my full mind and passion into the creation of the series. In 2018, I published my second graphic novel, "Lores of Yria - The Haunter of Dreams" which was successfully funded via Indiegogo as well.

And right now, I am working on the continuation of Myre's journey with Myre Volume 2!

Each graphic novel is a long term project that stretches from months to years till it's done. Because I invest so much time into each page, I don’t get much of a chance to be active on social media until everything is complete or be able to dedicate time into taking commissions, or paintings outside of the projects.

With Patreon, you will become part of a community of supporters with whom I can share insights to the Making Of, Work in Progress, Sketches, Thoughts and a deeper insight to my worldbuilding ventures. You can dive into the my mind and learn more about Yria. I think it’s going to be a ton of fun! With your support, you help me continue focus on telling Myre’s adventure and all characters around her.
And more! Since I have plenty more ideas for single illustrations outside my comic projects, this will be the platform where I will, in time, be able to give tutorials and early access to art, way before it gets posted to the public.

I would also like to give something back to the community and share my experiences and gained knowledge about art, storytelling, character design and the making of comics.
  •   Pages of Myre and HoD from the early sketch phase to completion (spoiler free!)
  •   Work in progress shots that probably don’t make it to the public.
  •   Thoughts and insights about the characters and the worldbuilding of Yria.
  •   Early access to art before the public gets to see it (if available)
  •   Early access to single illustrations and their progress.
  •   My approach on how I make comics and how to push through massive projects.

My Patreon page will als keep you directly informed about my current projects and what I have planned for the future. You will become a part of every journey.

My current project: -  Myre - Chronicles of Yria VOL 2

After completing Haunter of Dreams in 2019, my work on Myre 2 begun and was successfully funded on Indiegogo in August 2020. The storyboard of Vol 2 is now complete and I can work fully on the illustrations of each panel.

Haunter of Dreams and Myre Vol 1 are both available as printed books in my online store at:
Yria Chronicles Shop

I can fully focus on keeping my comic projects alive and running, set aside funds to keep up with printing costs for my comics, prints and other cool things, keep my hardware and software updated too and create more art and more journeys. And you're a part of it all! <3
