Thank you. Every little bit of sharing helps. I was able to communicate with the site owner via email. He's not in the USA, and he's pulling from other websites that have pulled from other websites that have pulled.... eventually from the original DeviantArt posts. These guys don't bother - or don't know that they need - to do the legwork to make sure that what they're using is not copyright protected. He seemed genuinely surprised by my communication, because he'd been pulling from third- and fourth-party websites all over the Asian continent. Most of his own sources weren't in English, so they wouldn't have even come up on my radar! That's how difficult the job has become. But if we call them out enough, when we can catch them, perhaps one or two out of the myriad offenders will mend their naughty (or ignorant) ways. =P

Great color choices - I love the blue and gold combination!
