found the google image, which so happens to be the exact image size as your 2bit version.  I went in and compared them in photoshop that it is an exact match meaning you either traced, or colour reduced.  I went and colour reduced the google image to discover that it is a pixel-perfect match to yours minus the slight revisions you made (such as making the background black).  This did not take you one hour, and took me no more than 5 minutes to reproduce.

this is your first warning

Please don't make the users or moderators play detective on you. We are quite experienced with catching rippers, as we've had long, frustrating years of practise. Actively trying to decieve the userbase earns you an official warning. Earn two more and you're banned. You recieve a first strike on your record for this offense, and it would be good to make amends. Consider yourself lucky as this is a transitionary period for the community, and soon enough ripping with be a bannable offense without having to do it thrice. This thread is locked. If you desire to contest the call of the moderators, do it in private messages with either me or Indigo.

Reconsider your usage of the forum.

Thank you.
