I liked your portrait of Rorschach, especially the details of the "Butterfly" inkblot on his mask.

May I use this as a background image for my blogTV channel? I know it's a little late for me to make that request, since I've already used it for that said purpose and I do sincerely apologize for using it without your permission. I got it from Comicvine and I didn't know you were the original owner of this portrait and was submitted here on deviantART.
