Walk through any art museum and you will find aspiring artists painting (attempted) copies of the masters.
When I started writing fiction novels I read several by writers I like in an attempt to understand and emulate their style. One very successful author told me to read every third page to get the best idea of the style without getting caught up in the story.
Sculptors do it.
And woodworkers do it.
My theory is that one can never exactly copy another's creation. We try to emulate and learn from others.
Go for it.
