How to tell if someone is plagarizing?

I saw this Hatsune Miku wallpaper on the homepage but :iconpmazzuco: and thought it was pretty dang good so I went to their page. This person been on here for a month, has very little information about his or herself (not even a dAID), and all they have posted are very complex wallpapers.
Now I understand that some people don't want to post any information about themselves online. That's reasonable. But produce something of such a high quality and barely say anything about it in the description, sometimes just a smiley face? I could (and may very well be wrong) about this person and this really is their art, but it seems suspicious. Especially with all the art theft, plagarizing, and tracing going on. What do you think?

If you think about it, the concept of private property is flawed. :meditate:

This piece by them
looks an awful lot like these deviations -all by different deviants

So yeah, either they have many accounts or they are using other people's stock images without permission or something.

I can’t even trace the original image. I wonder whose it was.

Some people don't speak good English, a better indicator is consistency of art style.

This is a very good point I hasn't considered myself.

:B There's been a few articles on how to tell floating around, I picked this up from one of them.
