I found an interesting picture of Pengolodh, who has no images in TG. The artist is called Silke, but her web is completely dead and I can't find any way to contact her. What to do in these cases? Do we need anyway her permission to upload the file?

Based on the Images Policy as long as you use the right format and quote the copyright holder it should be fine.

No, we must have explicit permission unless it falls under fair use. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 17:30, 3 June 2019 (UTC)
My apologies for misunderstanding; thank you for the correction Mith. --JR Snow 11:08, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
