Do not imitate anyone in your life, imitation is a kind of switching off the capability in your mind from creativity.
It is hard when you work so bad on something, and try to create your own way to turn out bad to better. And easily, someone comes and steal your technique and function it on his field.
But no problem, find new ways and dig deeper until you discover your road, and make others who are unfamiliar to it, make it their own way after you. Thats how you leave a great mark to be remembered.
