Invitation to Yamijima by ES-Dinah Invitation to Yamijima by ES-Dinah
I was in the mood to draw more Siren fanart and Yuri + Kanae were among my favorite characters.

They are both technically "sirens" in the game so I wanted to draw them with siren tails. There is a difference in the design of their tails due to the fact they have different objectives in the story of Siren 2 although they are both avatars of Mother. I really wanted to draw the creepy-ass pylon from the game in the background while they are chillin' on a rock in the middle of the blood-red sea.

I'm really happy with it in the end. I think its weird I actually took the time to draw a background for it but it actually brought out a lot in the piece and it accomplished what I had envisioned in my head.

Gorgeous!:clap: This truly is a masterpiece despite the series being pretty obscure. I'll have to do some fanart soon.

Thank you! I hope they make another game for the series sometime soon as well and as always more fanart spreads the love. :)

I... Can relate to how you feel! *_* As a passionate horror gamer, I can easily say that the Siren series is top-notch survival-horror. Which is unfortunate, because these more "survival" oriented horror games haven't been as popular in recent years. v_v Furthermore, the Siren series is pretty niche compared to Silent Hill and of course Resident Evil. :/ Whatever, I'm just going on a tangent now. xD

Anyway, it's a pleasure to meet a fellow Siren fan!:highfive: I definitely will get some fanart up soon. I had to jump through so many hoops to finally play Siren 2, and I got it to work somewhat recently.

Absolutely and when Blood Curse got released on the PS3 it gained a lot more popularity with people in the west. Another game would be the bee's knee's and I really hope the creator will get on that sometime soon.

Ah same. I'm from the US so Siren 2 never got released and I had to obtain means to bypass the region locking in order to play a UK copy. It was worth the trouble though and I love playing it.

Oh, for sure! Siren: Blood Curse was an excellent retelling of the original story with a unique twist adding Americans. I definitely agree! With recent games like Amnesia and Slender being so popular, it's obvious people want REAL horror games instead of these "horror" games which are just action games in disguise. >_<

Woohoo! Screwed-over American Siren fans unite!:highfive: Tell me, did you go so far as to get a mod-chip installed in your PS2 to play PAL Siren 2? I got both the UK version and the Japanese version. I'm using a crudely-modded PS2 slim and a special boot disc called "Swap Magic" to play it.

Unfortunately, even though I'm able to bypass the region lock on the PAL version, the game still won't boot properly and will freeze at the first cutscene. :/ But seeing as how the Japanese version also uses NTSC coding, that one boots fine... So I've been playing the original Japanese version, good thing I study Japanese and have the tools to translate. xD

My apologies for the long tangents I left in this response. :)

Yep, I got a modified PS2 for myself and got it to work but I had the same problem with it freezing so I would press X or whatever button to skip the cutscenes so I could play it. However I went to the mod chip screen and changed a feature in order to see the cutscenes so it wouldn't freeze anymore and then I could watch them.

Seriously we did get screwed over. Even though I really do like the original Siren, Siren 2 was such an upgrade and I love the music and setting in 2.

That is awesome that you are studying japanese so you can figure out whats going on at least in the jp version. I only bought the PAL version since I only know english but I do like to switch to the jp track to listen to the voice acting by the japanese voice actors too. ^^

No problem. Siren fans are few and far between so it's always nice to find another fan!

Interesting, lucky for you, you got that mod chip, and were able to adjust the settings. Unfortunately, I don't think I have that option with the Swap Magic disc. My best buddy actually played some PAL games a few years back on his PS2 slim, and just like me, he used Swap Magic. But lucky for him, he had a PAL-region TV, and through some technical bullshit, he was able to play his PAL games just fine. >.<

Oh, absolutely! The original Siren is a fun and unique game, but the gameplay is so unrefined, and they really made some major improvements in Siren 2. I have to agree, the music and the setting make it that much better. Furthermore, the story and the additional enemies just make it THAT much scarier! When it comes down to it, that's all I want in a good horror game.

Hehe, well it certainly makes it more exciting to listen to the characters and actually comprehend what's going on. But it's also pretty inconvenient because sometimes I spend more time translating all the kanji and sentences rather than focusing on the game itself. xD If I could play the PAL version, I'd definitely do what you did and set the audio to Japanese (those British voices just don't fit!)

I definitely agree, the Siren series is really niche, so a fellow fan is among friends. :handshake:

Love it. :) I seriously want to play Siren 2...>_> However I haven't completely finished the first siren (I'm stuck and have no idea why I haven't unlocked any new objectives...>_>)

I do own a copy though. (Found it 12 bucks on Ebay.)

YES YOU MUST, BUT FIRST YOU NEED TO FINISH THE FIRST ONE!!!! They spoil some stuff in the second one that gives away some plot elements from the first game.

Please please please look up a guide!! It helps immensely!

Nice! That's pretty cheap! Do you have a PS2 that can play it?

:flirty: Thank youuuuuu. :heart: After a crappy art block I'm pretty happy this turned out better than I expected. I'm really happy with the background and the fact that I decided to take time to do it and do it nice. :> I wanted to get some personal art out of the way before I start on some belated B-day art. That and I didn't want ppl to receive crappy B-day art because of my lame block.

That's always a good feeling when it turns out better than you intended. You should do backgrounds more often, you really nailed this one. It's so nice, your coloring has always been so wonderful and this just knocks it outta the park.

I look forward to you posting more stuff though =)
