I was wondering what you guys thought of the idea of mixing the classic predator helmet (P1) and adding a little Shredder helmet to it (TMNT2). Not saying to add the arch to it but the spikes around the sides to the back of it.
Well, you wouldn't necessarily be duplicating someones work if you made your own design and added your own touch to it. I am sure it wouldn't come out the same as the other person's if you knew what it looked like.
Hell, you can take a regular P1 helmet and add your own little tweaks to it and it would still be original in design simply for the tweaks you added to it. As long as you aren't completely just copying an original and calling it your own... you should be fine.
