On Copying: The Internet vs Companies by Chocoreaper On Copying: The Internet vs Companies by Chocoreaper
Back when I started deviantART i learnt you’re not supposed to copy (let alone trace) artworks, which is true, and an important lesson. And god forbid you forget to credit the original artists without getting bashed online.
It was until I got employed that I realized people in the workplace don’t even care whether their employees copied or not, as long as what they make sells. These people care less about intended similarities between works than people on the internet.

Moral of the story: plagiarism is a big no-no, but copying? most companies won’t care as much as an average artist on the internet will. Elaborate internet hate is real.

Tracing, copying, or swiping is a big part of the art industry. Everybody does it, even famous artists, and they are not ashamed to admit it. The companies don't care, as long as you meet the deadline. It's also referred to as "drawing from reference" and it does make the art more realistic. But an artist can just draw what they see from the reference, if tracing or copying is an option an artist doesn't choose to do.

creating works is important but learning from other people art is probably more important?
