I'm AustraliumSiren, but you may also call me Aussie Siren, or any other alias you might know me by. |
My art style is mostly anime-ish, though I sometimes try to throw other styles in the mix as well. This is particularly true for my TF2 fan art, as I'm trying to find a style that's a hybrid between anime and the TF2 art style. I tend to draw a lot, though I'm a very creative person who dabbles in multiple art disciplines: I sometimes write, plush, cosplay and craft things as well.
I noticed people tend to ask me the same types of questions, so I've compiled a little FAQ for those of you who are wondering about me:
Q: Are you Australian?
A: Yes. I wasn't born there, but I do identify as one. I may be Dutch by birth, but I've got Australian relatives (and the accent as well). Most of my family has either lived in Aus for a while or is still living there, so it shouldn't be surprising that I feel strongly connected to the place. Also, I am moving to Sydney in 2016 and I'm really excited about it, which is why there's a lot of Aussie symbolism on my page.
Q: What's with the crappy written Australian accent in your TF2 RPs/pictures?
A: I love accents, so I tend to write Roo and Sniper how they would sound to most English speakers of different dialects, just like I would exaggerate Medic's German accent and Engineer's Texas drawl in my RPs and pictures.
Q: Do you take requests?
A: Yes, but only from friends (You know who you are).
Q: Why won't you draw yaoi?
A: While I'm all for gay rights, I've grown sick and tired of having gay porn of my fave characters shoved into my face all the time. I'm simply fed up with seeing slash everywhere, which is why I don't draw gay pairings unless they're canonically established and confirmed (meaning they have to make sense to me and not be made gay for the sake of being gay). I don't mind drawing OC x Canon same sex couples, but again, the pairing would have to make sense to me for me to be willing to draw it. I would like to stress that I'm NOT a homophobe; I'm just tired of yaoi.
Q: Why won't you draw inflation/vore/ponies/insert-any-other-creepy-fetish-here pics for me?
A: Because I don't like them, and I simply refuse to draw what I don't like. End of story.
Q: Why are you taking forever to draw my Request/Art Trade/Whatever?
A: Everything I do is done in Valve Time because I have a life outside of dA (which largely consists of gaming, so technically speaking I might not have much of a life at all); Though I try to get at least one question for the Ask Blog done once every three days.
Q: Will you RP with me?
A: Sure. I will RP with anyone, as long as they stick to a few rules:
Please respect my Alternate Universe when you start an RP on my page.
Take note of the fact that I have my own theory about Sniper's origins (meaning he is still Australian in my AU).
Don't control my character, and don't expect her to always agree with you, either.
Lastly, please keep in mind that I don't like RPing anything overly explicit (though fluff is fine).
If ever there is anything you're unsure about, please ask! I won't bite.
Stuff I will get done soon*
*Please note this means soon measured in Valve time.
Projects Likely to be finished and not abandoned:
Mass Effect OC profiles (2 more to go)
The Wishmaker (TF2 fanfic)
Roo's Ask Blog
This list serves as a way for me to keep track of which question is up next to be answered.
All questions are answered on a first come first serve basis, and are to be asked on the page of this deviation:
Collabs, Gifts and Art Trades:
Draw Dispenser OTP for Fixii (gift)
Draw N00bSoldier and SoldierN00b for Fixii (Collab)
Something to remember when asking me for Collabs/Art Trades: I will NOT -and I repeat- will NOT accept Art Trades/Collabs asking me to draw porn and/or fetish pics.
