    About the presenter : Deanna Cathcart (Deathbycanon)

    Deanna Cathcart has played around in photoshop since ps5 came out in 1999. She did composites using other people's stock for several years before picking up a camera in 2004 to start taking her own photos to work from. That didn't last long as she quickly became very well known locally for her photography and opened up her own photography studio a few months later. It was a very successful business, but the stress that came with it didn’t play well with her chronic illness and after several hospitalizations, doctors told her she needed to stop working. She closed the studio in 2012. It was too depressing for her to even touch a camera for a few years so she took a break.

    Then her youngest daughter became interested in makeup and costumes and would dress up and ask her mother to take her photos, so Deanna picked her camera back up. She went back to the reason she picked her camera up in the first place and started doing composites again. Some of these needed dragons and she was running out of pre-rendered dragons being offered at DeviantArt, so in 2017 she ventured into Daz Studio. It took her a while to get the hang of it but once she did she loved it. It was like having her photography studio back again!

    Deanna is now a successful digital artist and is a co-founder of Sympatico Studios
