I love Animal Crossing:New Leaf, save the fact that I hardly ever play it.
The game is absolutely perfect in practically every sense imaginable, but for some reason, my mind thinks with such a tangential scope that I can't seem to focus on one single th-OH LOOK A SHOE!
Being a pretty big art buff, I love the fact that the game finally chose to make the counterfeit paintings that Crazy Redd sells easier to tell apart. So, for the heck of it, here's a look at all of the paintings that can be counterfeits and the way to tell them apart, because for some reason I decided it would be a good idea even though I'm willing to bet I was completely wrong.
(To Bidoof Crossing: Sorry for stealing all your images. I'm too lazy to take my own.)
Part I: The Boring Ones
For example, the one on the left is simply flipped. I also bought one of them, so I pray to the gods of Animal Crossing that Redd steps in a puddle with his socks on for proper vengeance because that guy's gotta pay. Seriously.
Part II: The Noticeable Differences
Part III: The Others
Such changes can range from UFOS to astonishingly sassy Gainsboroughs.
To make up for a lack of information, here's a top three of the best ones which thrive in this particularly beautiful category.
3. Sharaku's Scary Painting is Out Looking for Booty
While evidently not as scary as the title implies, the fake's combination of the actor's ghastly, pale face and his fingers pointing, implying he's in search of some serious booty, does little to put the viewer at ease. In tandem with his 2-foot V-neck, he looks even more like a menace to both fashion and society. Speaking of which, he looks awfully similar to this totally legit wanted poster I found a couple of years ago which is 100% totally not made on Microsoft Paint.
To be completely fair, though, the original version's jazz hands weren't too much less discomforting either.
2. The "Great Statue" Embracing '90s Rap Culture
Moving on, he usually has his hand facing upwards, but in the fake version, his hand is straight-up facing down. Leading archaeologists have come up with a handful of reasons as to why such a strange mix-up has occurred. Here are their professional opinions as found in a totally legit file somewhere in Area 51:
-"Looks like some kind of ancient Pacific hokey-pokey ritual." -Dr. Lame-O, Esq.
-"He's to fabulous to have it any other way." -Mr. Guy "Please Stop Making Fun of my Name" Junior, Sr.
-"Homie's straight up gangster. Case closed, Holmes." -Professer Swaggerlicious "Swaggy" IXIXIXIIIIC
1. I Want the Serene Painting on My Wall Right Now
Legitimately one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen in a video game, the "Serene Paining" replaces an ugly, white ermine with a completely mandatory cat.
If you can't see how amazing this is, then you don't deserve to live.
Here's a list of reasons why the idea is completely brilliant:
-Supports funding of medicare websites
-LOL JK it's just a cat
One day I will legitimately hire somebody to paint me this image so I can proudly put it above my hypothetical fireplace because the painting is a gift to share with the rest of the world.
One final note: Interviews are coming! Maybe tomorrow, maybe next week, I still have to figure it out, but I've got 'em ready to post.
