Paintings for Museum?

#1Mini Black MagePosted 8/15/2013 4:01:12 AM
Fossils, bugs, fish? No probs.

Paintings? None.

Granted, I haven't even been playing for a full week, but... Seriously? I heard getting the second half of the museum involves talking with Blathers every day and atleast having one of all types donated. So, my question is, how can I get paintings?

I know I can get paintings from Redd and villagers, but what are some other ways?

The trade boards? I mean, I only just hit my first week and I only have two art donations; one I got from a Villager and the other from Redd's tent.

Eh, I'm work right now and was just wondering if there were any other methods. Besides, posting on the trade board for paintings is almost like begging, and I don't really like doing that. And asking how to get paintings through the regular gameplay on the trade boards doesn't really fit either.

Haha! I was going to ask if there's any way to tell whether a painting is fake or not.

I think those are the only two ways.

I wouldn't recommend trade boards if you've only played a week since most people will charge over 100k+ per painting.

But if you'd like, I got two statues i already have in me museum that you can have for free.

I've received more paintings from villagers than I have from Redd, although I've bought quite a few fake ones from the villagers. It seems if a villagers tries to sell me a painting for around 7000 bells it always seems to be fake, but if they sell me one around 3500 it's real.

Interesting... And if it's being sold from the village there's no way to preview it is there?

I second aukevin on that. I've purchased three or so paintings from my villagers and both the overpriced ones turned out to be fake while the one sold at close to the actual price was real. And there is really no way to preview what a villager sells you. :/
