Standard Licensed Photo: is a tracing subject to copyright?

Hi all! My question is this: if I have a stock photo with a standard license, is it okay for me to create a tracing of it for use on merchandise?

I am aware that the photo itself and its standard license does not allow this. I am also aware that an enhanced license is needed to put the photo itself on a shirt for example for sale... but what about a tracing I did in procreate of the photo? 
The tracing really doesn't look a lot like the original photo.

Please help! Thank you.

Why are you posting this picture here? It's unrelated to the OP's question.

My instincts say "very much NOT OK" but I'm not a lawyer. You should contact one who specialises in IP. Though, just buying the correect license for merchandising woule probably be a lot cheaper!

My instincts agree with @Test Screen Name! It saddens me to disappoint you.

Look here for more information on licensing: https://community.adobe.com/t5/stock/links-for-licensing-terms/td-p/11366788
(Disclaimer: As always with licensing, this is my interpretation of the rules. I think they are correct and advice is based on reading and interpreting the licence terms and on fair use for both the buyer and the artist/stock company, but I cannot rule out that my interpretation is wrong. I'm not an Adobe employee).
