How do I know if I have created a derivative work?

Your finished work must exhibit originality. It cannot be a rote, uncreative variation on the earlier, underlying work. The latter work must contain sufficient new expression, over and above that embodied in the earlier work for the latter work to satisfy copyright originality. For more information see Title 17 of the United States Code which outlines United States Copyright Law.
