Sylvia Ritter is a digital painter, illustrator, concept artist and game developer, currently living in Germany.

In January 2008 she started drawing and painting regularly. Sylvia went from fineliner drawings to vector art, pencil drawings, sculpting, papercuts, linocuts, fabric design, oil/acrylic paintings, fabric design, typography until she finally found her preferred medium, digital painting. In 2010 her apprenticeship at a photographer agency ended and she started to work on her art full-time. The same year her husband and Sylvia also successfully crowdfunded the creative commons music album “paniq – Beyond Good and Evil”. She created the cover and booklet art and her husband composed the music. In May 2012 they founded their company “duangle” and started another crowdfunding campaign for their game in development “NOWHERE”, an alien life simulator.
