Also just looking at all the amazing work done on the realm is more than enough to get an idea, but I agree with ComicFantasyCustoms that you would want to put your own twist on it rather than just copy...But I do take it as one of the highest forms of compliments/flattery one can get when someone says they want to steal your idea

Imagination is the key. Sometimes looking at others customs helps to get your own spin on a recipe. Google image search is a great tool as well. With comicvine you can choose an image, shrink the screen, and put it side by side with your intended figure. I also do this with casting sites such as DMC to compare heads. Roughly sketching out a concept design or printing out a photo you can compare when sculpting are useful as well.
