Usually yes, because I go around and mash a lot of things that inspire me together. Since these things never get really published on the internet, though, all those things are written down somewhere in my huge piles of paper...
I don't normally receive much inspiration from other artists except in the manner of vague ideas, i.e. "Hey, that guy draws cool dogs, maybe I should draw a dog." Unless I'm using a tutorial or art style attributed to their specific work, I probably won't credit it. (to clarify, referring here to inspiration, not references- I always source those.)
Sometimes I just look at multiple works on dA and get inspired to something similar with my own flair, but once I submit the work I completely forget that a few images before had once inspired me. But when I look at stock images I think of what I can use with them, when my work is done I credit all the stock I used.
i usually don't give a link to the person's actual art but if I get inspiration from someone, especially on here, then i'd say something along the likes of "I saw this guy's work and thought it was awesome! so I decided to draw some stuff from that person! woo -adds their icon so people could click their profile"
i don't know if that counts but usually if someone's work inspires me then I'll talk about it in the description and then tell people to check them out -shrug-
When I reference something or just completely do my own version of their work, I always make sure to credit them in the deviation's description but I never tell them because I'd be embarassed if they saw my work and didn't think it was good...
I'd rather credit them if their work played a big role in my art, so other people can enjoy it and be inspired as much as I was. I usually send them a note, and they seem so happy that their art inspired somone; and I think passing on inspiration in every artist's goal. (:
It depends. 100% of the work out there is inspired by someone or something. I'll always credit any models that I referenced, or any stock that I didn't buy on iStock etc. The stock community on dA works hard and definitely deserves the shout out
I don't credit them. Well, maybe I understand the term "inspired" wrong but when I'm inspired by someone it doesn't mean I'm going to copy his/her artwork (for I don't see the point of doing this), you usually wouldn't even notice the similarity between my artwork and the one I got inspiration from. (Of course I would credit them if I was using it as a reference but we're talking about inspiration, aren't we?)
I guess people, who don't credit them, will not write down here ...
Most time I'm inspired by photos, then I give only credit, if people ask me or I remember. WHEN an artwork inspired me, it's most time a picture from my art teacher, then I can't give credit, because he doesn't have internet and told us all, we can use his pictures as references
