Hello everybody!

So, in usual fashion, it has been a few years! I figured I should post some art - I haven't for over 6 years - but alas, all I have are doodles.

I'm still alive. I just have no time for art anymore :( But I'm still very thankful to all those who used to follow and support me, and I do still think of you!

I'm not here to stay unfortunately, but I just wanted to check in. I hope you're all doing well :)

Lots of love to all!

I was heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere...I lived, I loved says Beyoncé. I agree.

Erm, HI EVERYBODY! So, I haven't been properly active here in almost 7 years. Crazy. But I do live and I still sketch away sometimes. I wish I could have time to draw and upload, but alas, I don't, and if I get free time, I have to do other things. Le bleh!

Studying eats all my time. I can't really do anything other than study or pretend to study but do nothing. So I apologise!

I don't know what spurred me to log on again after over a year (as usual), but for some reason old little dA has been on my mind lately. I was just scrolling through the comments on my pictures and felt so nostalgic! Lots of old memories...

One thing I wanted to do was thank everyone who's commented and favourited my work. I'd never have the time to reply to everyone individually as you deserve, and I apologise for that, but know that I do see each and every comment. I wholeheartedly appreciate the time taken to click on the commenting box and type something, even if it's just a 'cute' or 'lol.' I'm happy that people have enjoyed my work enough to add it to their favourites, and gone to the little fav button and clicked it. You've sat there and taken the time. I appreciate the thought. I touches me :)

It amuses me how such old work still gets feedback...I wish I could share so much new material with you but I just haven't the time. Oh, how I'd love to be 16 keeps moving on unfortunately </3

Mostly, I just wanted to say hello and give a shoutout to those of you who've stuck by me and watched, commented, favourited or otherwise interacted, haha - old and new! Love to all of you, and yes I am still alive!

Hope you are all doing well and sending you lots of hugs,

Ali xx

Well, it's been over a year since I've last posted here so I should write something...and I really need you guys' help, too.

I'm taking part in an outfit design for Leona Lewis, and the top prize could really change my life around. It would mean so much to me and give me the boost I need. My friend Joana ( Poppita ) is also taking part and it would also boost her career, so please vote for her too!

ANYONE can vote provided you have Facebook, Twitter, MySpace or you can text (this is also FREE). If you have all, even better! If you have multiple accounts, better still! It would mean the world to me if you could help me out, please let me know if you do!

All you need to do is follow the link and click the vote button! :)

The link to my design is…

The link to Joana's design is…

Thank you so, so much if you can help us out!

Voting ends Wednesday, 23rd November 6 pm GMT (10 am PST). But it seriously doesn't take more than one minute! :)

P.S. As for myself, I've just been ill. Nothing new to report there. But I'm okay thanks <3

Hokay so this doesn't really have anything to do with art, so you can skip this if you want, but for those who care...XD

I made a MySpace (ugh!?) account for my music. Since music's taking up most my time and is one of the reasons I'm drawing less, maybe you'd like to see what I've done from time to time? XD


So far I've only put up a snippet of a really scratchy demo (I blame the chest infection I had back then - and that's not just a convenient excuse when your mucus is orange). My voice doesn't really suit that song very much anyways, but I've learnt that now. I do all the songwriting myself, and it's definitely something I'd like to develop and pursue alongside all my other ambitions :)

Pay a visit if you don't mind your ears being violently assaulted! And if you do, let me know what you think...and don't laugh. >_>

I'm also being consumed with X Factor and my new infatuation is with Treyc Cohen. The girl is a legend!


As for my life, things are going an appointment with a doctor who specialises in fibromyalgia/ chronic fatigue (which I have), so hopefully I'll get some sort of support and treatment behind me soon. Theeennn I have an ultrasound on Nov 3rd to work out what's dodgy about my liver...hopsital visit number twelveeeee.

Erm, just figured I'd say helloes and things because it's been a while since I've shown signs of life here. Unfortunately art really isn't that big a part of my life anymore, but as always I'll keep uploading whatever dribs and drabs I do~

Working on music and things a lot more now, so that's partly to blame XD

Can't believe it's September already, where did my summer go!? *mumble grumble*

Lots of love,

21st Birthday and SoS

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 18, 2010, 12:03 PM
Hey guys, just a quick message to say thank you for all the birthday messages you all gave me:heart: I will try to get back to them one by one though :) I had :iconvixenkitty: and :iconenigma-shadow: come down from London to hang out with me and we had a great time with my other friends too :) I also tried doing a barbecue but it sort of started raining on us so we had to move everything under my garage XD Indoor barbecue ftw~

Just on a side note, who's going to the Summer of Sonic this year? I should be going with a few others, it'd be nice to know who's who there. Sort of saw a few people last year but didn't mingle much. I'll try to actually talk this time if you will! :)

Expect me uploading a few unfinished doodles in dribs and drabs as always. Have a backlog to scan through, haha~

Lots of love,

Also a huge thanks to :iconshadowhog: for the random year subscription! That's awfully generous of you! :)

...I was only joking about >_> I'm not seriously upset thinking I'm 'old' XD I suppose a milestone is a good reminder to get your life in gear, though.

Anyway! My sister had her second child on my birthday too :D So it was an awesome day :)

Also, details for the Summer of Sonic are up, go register! Click right here!



...I need to sort out my life >_>

Hey everyone, just a quick update.

I'm gonna be a little bit busy over the next two months, so I probably won't be updating much. In terms of life it's my 20th birthday on the 9th (omg I'm gonna be old T__T), for which I'll be yoyoing between London and Bournemouth and on the day I should hopefully be going to the Isle of Wight, which should be cool.

Also, I have to thank :iconvixenkitty: for the subscription (she got me a 3 month one), and I was supposed to feature lots of people since they featured me, but I've been stupid and lazy (as per usual) and haven't got round to it, so I'm gonna do it now! Check the bottom of the journal for that~

Aaaand, I've been tagged by akula-kun, so I have to play along otherwise I'll be strangled. So, here goes:

Here's what I (and you if I manage to catch you) have to do:
1. Post these rules.
2. Each person tagged must post 10 things about themselves in their journal.
3. At the end, you have to choose 8 people and post their icons in the same journal.
4. Go to their pages and send a message saying that they’ve been tagged.
5. No tag-return!

10 things about me~

1. I like hugs
2. I am Ali
3. I'm studying to become a doctor (hoo boy...what a laugh...)
4. I have issues
5. I'm crazy and can't think of what to write
6. I like Pokémon
7. I songwrite and may be able to land a contract soon!
8. I'm watching Captain Falcon get burned by lava
9. He lost
10. there's a hammerpocalypse

Now I'm gonna tag 8 of you unfortunate people, but I know it's a bit of a drag so you don't really have to do it. I might bite you though.

Hello all. *waves* T'is I :iconaurora-cs: here to get you all to once again help me convince the owner of this account that he is a truly magnificant artist and should admit as such and shout it from the rooftops at midnight in a voice brimming with self-belief, sincerity and well-deserved arrogance.

Now, said owner has just reminded me of how silly he can be:

I came down on Sunday to spend several days here in London so I could weedle sketches from Ali. I arrived at Wembley Park, having transversed several staircases, at around 11.30am, and was meant to meet Ali at midday.

However, a little after twelve, Ali texts me and tells me he fell asleep on the coach from his place to London, and was on his way to Liverpool - which is closer to my home than his. So he then was dropped off at a service station, got a taxi to a train station, a train to London and the tube here, meeting me at around 6.30pm.

He has now gone to make up for the delay by spoiling me rotten, not letting me pay for anything - though I did sneak my own dvd purchases through at HMV by going to the till when he took a phone call, but he said he will get me back for that.

Now, everyone barrage Ali until he uploads a picture of Aura to his main gallery!

Okie dokie, so~ I should be going on both Saturday 23rd May and Sunday 24th May. Who's going? :D Comment here or note me and we'll see if we can meet up briefly~ I should be meeting Azulunar Poppita and Syaming-Li there, but I hope to run into others, too~

That aside...

Still been hanging out with some of my friends from here~ namely :iconazulunar: :iconpoppita: :iconvixenkitty: and :iconsyaming-li: :) Great people to be around, thanks guys for an awesome time. :heart:

Oh, good Heavens. These people make me laugh so much. I'm going to hang out with them more! Now go visit their galleries, watch them and give them love.

So much STUFF happened yesterday and today (...which is now yesterday, since it's 3 AM again) that I can't even remember all of it! But I remember lots of butter! And there will be more of it!

Note to self: buy it buttered.


Oh, and Rose, hope you see this, my phone's being screwy and isn't delivering texts (I think it's running out of memory...) Let's hang out soon!

Who's going!? :D

For those of you who don't know, it's a gathering of Sonic fans, and lots of dA people are going. There'll be live music from artists who recorded songs for the games, and last year Nigel Kitching who used to illustrate and write for Sonic the Comic (UK) was there. Jun Senoue knows about it, too :O

The date's been set for August 29th, 2009, London, UK.

Details here --->…

I'll be there as far as nothing comes up~ hope to see you there!


EDIT - 15.04.2009~

Okie, I want to keep the SoS thing up there, so I'm slapping my journal alongside it as an edit.

Onnnn Saturday, I met up in central Londinium with :iconvixenkitty:, :iconpendulonium: and :iconenigma-shadow:! Now, these three are awesomely funny people, and good at art too! So go watch them please~

We met up outside Big Ben because Big Ben is cool and then Fraser and I drove in the bumper cars, and he kept smashing my car D: Then he decided to plaster my happy meal box with ice-cream, and proceeded to lick off~ (as I needed to carry it and all) so that was quite funny!

Thennn we went to Cyberdog in Camden Town which plays music so obnoxiously loud it's actually surprising the workers' brains haven't liquidised yet! But it's a cool place because it has UV lights! Then Fraser had to go because he had a gig to see :( Wish we could have hung out a bit more~

At that point Kirsten and Stacey came with me to the Trocadero, where we laughed at some pervy book in Tokyo Toys (awesome, and awesomely overpriced Japan type shop). We headed to the internet cafe where we messed about on dA, then we drew~ I got them both to draw Amy, go me! I started to draw Kunckles, but, as expected, didn't finish, because I am made of fail. Whilst we were drawing, we kept hearing this sound that we decided was a clown car, and we theorised that it was trying to ram its way up the escalator to get to me, but it kept failing (a yeti whacked it with a hammer once it got near the top, so I was safe, thankfully).

So...yeah! All three are awesome! And if you're in London or Bournemouth, there is not excuse not to hang out with any of us D:

Catch ya later my pretties!

Lots of love,

This is :iconaurora-cs:, I have hijacked this journal to ask everybody to beg, cajole and plead with Zachary to upload more new art, so that we can all bask in the glory that is his amazing illustrative skills.

Also, despite what he may tell me, I am going to refute several claims he consistently makes to me.

1) He can draw.

2) He can draw better than I can.

3) Any other negative comment he has or will make about his art is NOT TRUE.

Currently he has 12,313 deviations to view and 2,156 messages to look through, with 233 of these being comments. So let's all beg him to end his exile and embrace Deviantart once again.
