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 what'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.
Favourite Game Characters
I've 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: Sort of. 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; I'm a Dutch/English bilingual). 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 soon and I'm really excited about it, which is why there's a lot of Aussie symbolism on my page.
Q: Do you take requests?
A: Yes, but only from friends (You know who you are).
Q: Why won't you draw slash pairings/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 same sex couples, but, 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. Please take this into account when asking me for a trade or request.
Q:I came here to watch you for art of <insert fandom here>. Now all you seem to be drawing is <insert current obsession here> fan art! What gives?
A: People go through phases of fandom. Deal with it.
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 with me.
Don't control my characters, and don't expect them to always agree with you, either.
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.
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.
