This is a pretty neat site worth checking out: J.R. Antrim's Videogame Lookalikes. The idea is that videogame characters are based on characters from movies and cartoons. It's pretty convincing, especially for Metal Gear and a few other games.

Artistic "inspiration"

We actually had that discussion recently on the SWCOLLECT mailing list I think. I've actually noted it to be a common practice of "marginal" artists for quite some time. I think the really talented ones can draw from scratch or live models or photos, while the less talented ones seem to have to draw verbatim from something else and can't even make it where it's not noticeable. The video- and computer-game world has certainly been no different.
