Many times, when building a creation or replicating something you've seen, you often find that you don't have the right parts. You then proceed to imagine a way to make it look similar to what your recreating or what you've envisioned, and then proceed to find new, inventive ways to do so. Sometimes it stops there, sometimes it doesn't. You might then realize that this part looks really stupid, and suddenly, that alot of it seems oddly made. You then have a new idea for something more creative, more original, made by you, and now have the knowledge and experience on how to create new effects or structures. Thus, taking the shortcut blinds you to all these experiences, as well as ends up looking worse than it would when built of your own blood, sweat, tears and pieces. The first three are optional of course.
