    This is probably best in Resource Support which is specifically for giving feedback.

    I am moving this to Resource Support

    As long as you are not copying everything detail per detail, is okay. There is a word for charas that have: Expy. It looks close to another character, but is not the same.

    Yeah, just as a reference is fine, but if you copy things over, even if you don't use cut and paste but do a part by hand exactly the same, then that's where it's a problem. I personally like to use multiple references when working, it helps me make it my own thing entirely and avoid any accidental mimicry.
