Crazy Redd arrived in Animal Crossing New Horizons with the April 23 update for better and for worse…
After a good month of building and bringing our island to life in the best possible way, Animal Crossing New Horizons is offering us new content. Do not panic! We are not talking here about the return of Easter eggs but many of the novelties mentioned in this article. Among them, the arrival of sculptures and paintings to enrich your home, your decorations and especially the brand new art gallery of our dear owl. Beware of the trap, there are fakes among the tables and you do not want to be tricked when shopping. How to avoid getting scammed? Here is our complete guide.
How to bring Redd to his island?
You have to look for it on your island but an indicator shows whether it is present or not, a boat. It docks on your secret beach often located north of your island behind the cliffs. It is a small patch of sand that you must have noticed. You hardly have room to put a coconut palm and a hammock. If you don’t see it, he will be there the next day … or the day after. Make sure you have participated in the grandeur of the Museum because it is one of the conditions to unlock Redd, 60 donations are required.
When you have bought his canvas, you have the choice to give it to Blathers so that he can renovate his museum. Do not worry if the boat is not yet accessible, you have to wait for his next visit during which he will invite you to discover his liner.
How to distinguish the real from the false paintings in Animal Crossing New Horizons?
As stated above, some tables proposed will be false. It is necessary to observe and exercise discernment. We share photos to know how not to be trapped. This is important because you can only acquire one work of art per day!
Here’s what should catch your eye when you look at the tables. !
On Vitruvian man
We must pay attention not to the drawing of the man in question but to the stain of coffee on the top rightcorner of the representation. A beautiful arc appears. Here is the original drawing:
The Night Watch by Rembrandt
This is not the most obvious and it is due to the brightness. Nevertheless, for most observers, you notice that in the FALSE table, the hat of the gentleman in the centre is different. So be careful, here is the right picture with the right hat.
The Blue Child
This is one of the simplest of the canvases offered in Animal Crossing New Horizons. Her hairstyle changes completely, which is rather funny. If you see a fringe, it is because it is not the right picture. Below the real picture.
Ajisai Soukezu by Jakuchu Ito
To dissociate the true from the false, nothing easier. In the faux, the colour of the main flowers is purple. As you can see with the image below, the original painting has a dominant towards blue.
You know that eyebrows take all their importance in life, especially when you see this big fake in Animal Crossing New Horizons which changes the eyebrows of the famous Mona Lisa. They are pointed upwards, which completely changes her gaze. Here is the original painting.
Beauty Looking Back
We find a problem of size in the next one, the height takes up most of the space when it shouldn’t. Don’t think big for this one, see the difference below. On the left the original and on the right the fake.
Giuseppe Arcimboldo’s Summer
A detail that matters. In the fake proposed at Redd’s boat, we do not find the flower which is at the bottom right of the image. Attention, be vigilant and always check if there is this famous flower on the chest of the model! Another image to guide you.
The birth of Venus
In the false version of The Birth of Venus, the trees are missing on the right of the image. It is quite large since it is quite empty. It just requires your sense of observation again and we will clarify it with the representation below.
In the false created in Animal Crossing New Horizons, the milk poured is quite bigger in quantity than on the original painting.
The eyebrows are reversed.
Hunters in the snow
Here you have to keep your eyes open because the difference is (almost) discreet. Among the three hunters on the march, the one on the left misses the call on the scythe, and even the front one, which is difficult to see. So make sure you find the three men standing. It is the one between the two main trees that is important, and the clearest, in the image that we share with you.
The portrait of Cecilia Gallerani by Leonard Da Vinci
Take a good look at the life-size portrait below and especially the animal. The latter determines whether it is fake or not. If the animal is a well-pronounced grey, it is a fake.
Velazquez and Las Meninas
We go to the next level. Here you have to project yourself to the image in the background. You see a man behind the entrance, yes this light at the bottom of the table! He directs his arm to the left in the original below while in the fake by Redd in Animal Crossing New Horizons, he points his arm upwards. Not easy to see at first glance but easy to recognize once you know where to look.
Usually white, it turns green when it is a fake in the game!
Conversely, it is naturally green while on fakes, it is white as snow, finally like Raijin.
The girl with the pearl of Vermeer
If it bears the name of the girl with a pearl, it is because she has in her ear … a pearl. And not a star-like on the fake. So look there when you want to acquire the painting.
No false tables for those in Animal Crossing New Horizons:
What about the sculptures?
Be careful, the statues and sculptures can also be false. You should be careful when buying representations of Nefertiti, the Capitolini, David, the Venus de Milo, the Dogu, the man with his disc, the big stone head, the ding Houmuwu, the Samothrace, the Heibayo sculpture because they were all clumsily copied. Keep an eye out for others, everything is fine.
Let’s go back one by one on the fakes.
The Dogu statue
The real Dogu figurine will not be difficult to identify. It must be said that the fake is ridiculous and stands out from blue coloured eyes… Here is the real one (even if it is not exactly like that in the game) but see, the eyes are closed and no grotesque colour appears on the face.
Venus de Milo
The difference between the real statue and the fake one is a detail. Look at the neck of our dear Venus, she usually does not wear anything while on the false sculpture, she wears a necklace.
David – Michelangelo
A sculpture well known to all and the creators of the game have managed to create a variant not very noticed. While he is wearing nothing with his right arm near his thigh in the original, a book appears in the forgery. So don’t be fooled and look well above his right hand.
The Rosetta Stone
The original is easy to distinguish from the fake. Indeed, it changes drastically in colour, which gives an explosive blue to the false sculpture. This time, we are counting on you not to be tricked. Here is the original.
The Capitoline wolf
I found it particularly funny this one. This work is remarkable. On the other hand, the fake becomes a little funnier since you will notice that the wolf sticks out her tongue like a hyena in the Lion King. Here is the original image to be trusted. The statue never sticks out its tongue so be careful!
Watch out for the trap and it will be easy to avoid if you know the sculpture in detail. In the Nintendo game, Redd had fun adding an accessory to Nefertiti, an earring on the right ear for the blow. While the lady’s ears are usually bare as in this photo.
The difference is in the handle, it’s as if a watch (or bandage) appears on the wrist with which he holds the disc.
The big stone head
What is funny? I don’t know but as you can see, the statue smiles on the right and it’s a sign of a fake! It does not smile on the original.
The difference is enough to spot because the original (in the image below) shows an open upper face. As for the false sculpture, there is a cover above with a third central “handle”.
This is technical. The fake represents the mirror of the statue, in the sense that everything will be reversed. Thus, the original see the right leg put forward while it is the opposite for the fake (false = left leg forward). Here is the right image statue.
Difficult to find a replica on the canvas (if you ever find one in good quality, do not hesitate). Clearly the big difference is that on the false statue, the man holds a huge object in his two hands. Difficult to miss!
The sculptures which are original without any doubt or any fake.
