Fake Art... Stupid Fox

#1RagamorphPosted 7/10/2013 1:21:55 PM
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.

There are plenty of guides that tell you how to spot a fake.

By following one of those, it's very easy to buy a real piece from Redd.

The only times I get fakes anymore are when neighbors try to sell me stuff because I can't look at it before I buy it.

Considering they physically look different when fake, i wouldn't say Redd was the stupid one.... >_>

In these day and age, looking for a guide first online is the way to go.

Whoa, I had no idea. You can't get a very good view of the art in there.

Haha yea.. there are so many guides now to help with it :) I'm so glad they decided to do that instead of the ol' random thing.

But hey, I guess i just have nothing better to do with my life because i googed for a few seconds instead of buying 6 fake paintings in a row and then calling a fictional fox stupid, hehe.

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.

There's a guide. Now no one who reads this has any excuse to buy a fake piece from Redd ever again...unless you want to buy a fake piece to send to a neighbor you hate out of spite.
