Hey, man, don't worry about it - it really just comes with practice, you get faster and better and stronger (lulz). I wouldn't compare yourself to any other artists unless you really are aiming exactly for their art or whatever, because it will just serve to discourage you.

Everyone gets to the stage where they figure out that there are ten million artists out there better at art then they are - just don't let it keep you down, man.

Hey man, don't sweat too much. I used to be the same way when it came to looking at other peoples art for reference or inspiration, I always thought I was copying or ripping them off some how. Then I learned that most of those artist looked at reference themselves. Maybe not during there current works, but at some point in their practice they had. And once I realized it took time to build a mental visual library by looking and studying tons of different art, artist and photos, I felt a lot better about using reference.
But even if you memorize hundreds of different photos or images, sometimes seeing the reference right beside your work to compare or correct yourself is often the best way to go about it. Even when making something that is completely new that doesn't have specific reference, find the different elements that make up something and then just use the reference for that specific area.

Example: Cthulhu's tentacles, find photos of real tentacles :P

So yeah find what you need on Google and buying reference books when you can and then practice, practice, practice.
I hope this encourages you and helps you

So this is pretty cool.

It is pretty cool if you are a Jaimie Hewlett/Gorillaz fan.
the only problem I have with this competition is that you are only limited to use a very primitive art program, but it still is a cool contest nonetheless.
