Im not sure if this is the right place for this question, but I dont know a better place for it, so... I have tons of ideas for projects in my mind, but for one of them I would like to take inspiration from final fantasy oldschool games like final fantasy 1 and 5, but I have fear about getting into copyright problems, as I ve seen even freeware games having similar problems with Nintendo and others, so I wonder to what extent you can get inspiration from something that doesnt belong to you. Lets take the example bellow: It is the white mage from final fantasy 1 Origins, by Square Enix. Lets suppose that I want to make a character that purposely is similar to him and put it in a comercial game. Can I get that same pallete or use the same color combination for the clothes? And even if my character will use a wizard robe too, can I still do that? Can I do that even if Im going to make it in a completely different body size? I guess those are my main questions about this topic, I want to know what the copyright laws allow us to do, and I think this is a important topic because its not good for the quality of your work to keep limiting yourself just because of fear of the unknown, if the copyright laws freely allow you to do things to a certain extent .
