What classifies as "likeness" concerning works of art and copyright law?


I just had my first design rejected by Zazzle. Unfortunately I can't show you the artwork I designed as it may be a copyright violation. I didn't use any photos. I drew it entirely on my own. It was a pyramid with an all-seeing eye, an unfinished capstone, green in color and given a cloth-like look. I had a ray of light come into it and out of it like the prism on the Dark Side of the Moon album (opposite direction). It was entitled "Dark Side of the World." If you looked at it you could tell it was an obvious spoof, but very different from the original. How alike is too alike?
