They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I say it's a first-class ticket to Knock-It-The-Fuck-Offville.

that is how i write and when building off inspiration from others, i always ask first. be it to continue  a story they cancelled or my own take, i ask, and that is all

I totally agree with this. Being inspired by someone and copying someone are two completely different things. Keep up with these awesome works. Here's a fave for you!

Well, when I was a little girl (...a teen, like 13-14 years old), I didn't know exaclty the difference between copy, inspiration, theft. You can understand and see what is bad and what is good by being inspired by someone art style with the time, I guess.

This stamp is good, but I don't know if this simple phrase can make the difference for pre-teens and teens who don't have the maturity to see the difference. I don't judge badly those people, I was a weaboo and I made base years ago with someone else work, but now I can see my faults and try to express myself.

There is a line between being inspired and down-right theft. I wish people realize this more.

I agree with this stamp! :)
Sadly, some people seem to get carried away with their inspiration from other artists' work. I really want to believe that not all of the copycats do it on purpose, since it's sometimes hard to be objective towards one's own art.

The stamp itself is lovely, and I like that you fit all the text in just two frames. I don't know why, but I especially like the look of the "Inspired" word :aww:

Nice job! Everyone could use a stamp like this, no doubt about it! I love when people can help each-other grow as artists, but there is a huge line between giving credit and just plain taking advantage of someone else's hard work. 
Keep it up! :)
