Art plagiarism refers to taking someone else's artwork or design and claiming it as your own. This includes tracing, reproducing, replicating or redrawing someone else’s artwork (in part or in whole), copying stylistic design choices and using someone else’s ideas as a direct source for content. Plagiarism occurs when tweaking or altering original details is not enough to make a piece unique from the original. To avoid plagiarism, you should consider seeking inspiration from multiple artists and works of art. If you feel uncomfortable sharing details about the art or the artist who influenced your piece or have concerns about how your work resembles someone else’s, it may be a sign that you have plagiarized another artist.
It is generally understood that photographers are not trying to pass off the three-dimensional subjects in their photos as products of their own creation; however, you should consider taking the photo from a unique vantage point or capturing the subject matter in a unique way.
