I am currently doing a ds project. Was curious where I could find artwork for releases. I'm looking for occult, medieval kinda stuff. Most of the stuff I have found on Google search, I don't know if I should use cuz I'd like to give the artists credit.
I would try and find an artist you like (older, most of the time) and just credit them on your release/BC/whatever. Countless artists have used Kittelsen, Dore, and the like without crediting them, so older stuff isn't as big a deal since its assumed its older and they're likely dead. For more contemporary artists, perhaps reverse image search the art you'd like to use to try and find their name and/or website, then you can either ask them directly or just add their name in the credits.
You can sometimes find good photos/scans of paintings to work with on the Wikimedia commons. There, many are only protected with a Creative Commons license which usually just requires crediting the original artist.
