    If it's recognizable as someone else's work, it's not yours.

    It's always better to do your own work. Not borrow heavily from some other artist.

    Probably 1/3 then it's yours but a form of the original but still yours. And of course 2/3 is even more yours and less of a form of the original.

    When you buy an original painting, you buy the physical object to have and enjoy. In most circumstances, you own only the artwork, not the copyright to it.

    The copyright remains with the artist unless:

    They specifically signed over their copyright to the buyer.

    It was done as work for hire.

    The copyright has expired. That is 70 years after the death of the artist.

      If you reference the POSE and change all the other stuff, then it's just a reference and not a copy.

    You don't, it is still plagiarism even if the illustration is out of copyright.
