Heyo! This blog is how you can easily credit art on CA, please remember that just cause you credit it does NOT mean it is okay to post! Find out if the original artist allows for reposts with credit. Check out my other blog on this topic: https://canterlotavenue.com/blog/795/referencing-tracing-theft-and-crediting/ and about reposting art: https://canterlotavenue.com/blog/792/reposting-art
