Is it cheating to copy?

Am I still an artist if I copy? I'm pretty good at drawing fairly accurately off of references, but can't come up with my own original work...I feel like a cheater this way and feel guilty when people compliment my drawings, but I'm not sure what else to do. To all the real artists here, can I still call myself an artist and be proud of my work? To what extent is is ok to copy?
