What I mean to say is that yes it's not possible to create something original that parts of it haven't been done before, but that doesn't actually matter as much as you'd think. Artists still manage to create art and not get sued for creating art, for the most part.
Art & or 3D Modelling in the traditional sense, are asked
to develop a simple concept that would show the shape &
form factor - say for a 'Reactor Core', the chance they'd
end up with very similar looking results aren't that odd!

layer to most of the things I make, to get away from any
