When is it too much?

I’ve recently come across a very nice artist. They do commissions and receive a lot of good feedback;however, their work resembles a popular artists much too closely. They don’t seem to be receiving in flack for this, but I recognized the art they based their off of immediately. Is what they are doing really okay? Obviously, they are making money by basing their work off another more popular artist. I can’t help but wonder if this resemblance, though many changes and creative liberties have been taken, is too much or to little to be considered okay or not. Frankly, in my opinion, it looks like blatant art theft. I won’t call anyone out, but here’s the artist who’s work is being copied.
