    I've started drawing characters, and before i get too deep and spent too much time on it, i have to know if for example my style <without black borders> and diffrent look is enough to avoid copyright problems, as obviously i used as an example characters from earthbound. what do you think, can i freely make more without worrying about copyright or should i make new, my own "lineart" for characters. (It's not question if they Look good, im asking about copyrights so ...shhhh xD )
    <image deleted, i already got answer i needed, thank you :v >

    If you could get copyright striked for similar styles, then no music at all or no platformer games would be released today.
    Don't worry!

    This doesn't fly in Australia and so I'd be surprised if other parts of the western world tried to enforce it in a drastically different way.

    Won't get a copyright strike, but some people will think you're lazy and lame if you're *too* close. Everyone is inspired by other art. Just make sure you're adding your own ideas to what you make, and you'll be fine!

    As they said me before, art styles can't be copyrighted, so don't worry!
