Watchers

This question is really just to get other people's opinions on something I've been pondering on for awhile.

There is 'person1' here on DA (will not mention names because I don't want people flaming them) who I watch that has a awesome anthro-ish comic and the writing, art, detail etc. is all done super awesome as well as their individual art pieces... BUT THEN... there is this 'person2' on DA who also watches them, has a comic, characters and art that is dangerously close in all aspects to being a direct copy; everything from the plot to the character appearance, names, and development is a direct rip from 'person1.' I've  also noticed whenever 'person1' draws a wallpaper, or updates their logo etc., 'person2' basically replicates it with a few minor changes - even on their YT channel, whenever 'person1' uploads a speed-paint here comes 'person2' doing the exact same shit a few hours later. Now 'person1' has a pretty huge fanbase and I was expecting somebody to say something to 'person2' about this, however, I later found out the 'person2' actually KNOWS 'person1', and says on their page that they are inspired by 'person1'...this is where my confusion starts, and its the reason I've not brought it up to either person 1 or 2. 

From what I know, there is a difference between 'inspired' and 'copier'; when you're 'inspired' by something, you may use those tools, elements, style, etc. in your own ORIGINAL work done YOUR OWN WAY. Then there's the 'copier' side to things; where there  may be an equal amount of inspiration, but instead of applying what you like about that person's art to your own ORIGINAL stuff, you just totally rip it off. But from the looks of things 'person1' views 'person2' as being inspired by them, when it clearly looks like 'person2' is just copying every little thing they do with very little originality.I rage now by AddMediaLuffy Anime Emoji (Confused or Dizzy) [V4] by Jerikuto

So thats what led to my question here; Whats the thin-line between inspired and copier?? And does which-side-of-the-line the art is on, vary depending on the person?

I enjoy art immensely! And wish to break into the industry of Multimedia; concept art, graphic design, indie comics, fine arts, writing, screen-printing and animation are all things I want to learn and grow in. My main goal however is to promote, improve and (eventually) publish my Original graphic novel series DIRT. :3

I appreciate constructive criticism ALOT! One of the reasons I joined DA was for that alone - my art is something I take a bit serious XD. I want to excel and improve as much as possible since not only do I love art just for the thrill of it, but wish to make a career out of it.

On the another hand, My inspiration comes from a PLETHORA of people; but mainly these guys:

:iconcappuccinodai: :icontamberella: :iconjon-lock: :iconxbloodshadow: :iconblixemi:

These peoples are ARtgasMiC!

-Ima lover of Rock,Reggae,Sha, Japanese rock, some kinds of Metal and a little bit of hip-hop urban in there.
-Wolves,Dragons,lizards,birds and Red pandas are my fave animals *U*! I draw them obsessively 8D
-Russian, African and Asian cultures is just some of the international-gung-ho-stuff that I'm into
- Ma motto: 'Everyones cool until proven an asshole.' and 'Don't spend your days counting, make your days count."
