Okay, I'm trying get one real piece of Artwork. Redd has been in my town 6 times since I started playing and every time I've bought a fake. My closet is filling up with Nintendo items and gyroids (which I want to display in my museum). Since I haven't got even one legit one I can't get the public works project to expand my museum. How in the world do I tell if its fake? I remember there was a way in Wild World but I don't remember the specifics. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Considering they physically look different when fake, i wouldn't say Redd was the stupid one.... >_>
Whoa, I had no idea. You can't get a very good view of the art in there.
You can adjust the camera in Redd's hut which lets you get a pretty close up view of each piece from multiple angles. It's not hard to get a close up view of a piece, at least enough to tell if it's real or fake (of course you still have to know what you're looking for, but as I mentioned before, there are guides)
I was able to get a good enough view of the Neutral Painting to see if the leaf has bite marks taken out of it, and that's one of the hardest ones to spot.
