Copying vs Inspiration

The issue has already been resolved but I’m still upset & in a state of “what the fuck???” I’m not the only one who has dealt with this. There are tons of gfx makers out there who have to deal with this bs on a regular basis so allow me to diffuse~

There is a fine line between inspiration and lack of creativity or in other words copying.The goal of inspiration is to make it your own. To change it so much it’s unrecognizable to the original.

If you google the word “inspiration” the definition is as follows: the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.
The key word is creative.
If you google the word “creative” you get: relating to or involving the imagination or original ideas, especially in the production of an artistic work.
The key phrase is original ideas.
If your work does not comply with these 2 definitions, your “inspiration” post is off.

I know for a fact that you are not in primary school, but what I do know is that you do have the mental capability to understand what is acceptable and what is not.
If mutuals &/or followers can recognize that it isn’t your idea then you’re not doing inspiration right. You’re not doing it the correct way. You are profiting off of someone else’s work with no regard to their effort and time put behind it.
And even if you’re respectful enough to accept this simple concept, it’s good to also ask the op for permission & to link the inspired post in the description.
