well hello, i have something to ask... is it okay to use other people design for references images? i'am not copying 100% the references, just for stimulate my brain for do some detail on my painting.. such as when i do vehicle i tend to see other people works, how they put the detail on their vehicle, like the detail of the machine, or how the exhaust and engine put together.. not the shape or 100% copying.. is it okay? hope somebody answer to this question..
Answer this question for me: if it wasn't OK, how would anybody ever design anything?

This is a grey area. If you're doing this for personal work it's not a big issue- but you want to stand on your own feet as much as possible. Using reference to help understand how light reflects on a particular surface is okay, but using a reference for super cool wheels isn't.
Professionally you want to avoid using other peoples work at all. It's one thing to browse through some of your favorite blogs before you start an image- but you don't want to have the blog open so you can cherry pick details from them while you work.
I don't agree with this. You don't have to take details directly, but you can use information indirectly. Take this thread for example.
