Redd is a crafty fox in Animal Crossing New Horizons who will try and rip you off with fake art, it’s down to you to be able to spot the difference between real works of art and fakes, but how do you tell which art is real?
How to find Redd on your island
When he first appears, you will have an announcement about a shifty character, which means he is on your island and you can spot him wandering around.
After your first encounter with him, you will find him in his boat, which is always docked up at the north end of your island.
You can enter his boat and take a look at his stock, which includes 4 pieces of art and 2 furniture items.
How to spot fake art
All of the art work at Redd’s shop is based on real life art, but the fakes will have some differences compared to the real art.
Basically, this is an expensive game of spot the difference, in which your best bet is to Google the original art pieces to compare them to the ones at Redd’s shop and make sure they match.
For example, the Mona Lisa painting has a slight difference in Animal Crossing in comparison to the actual Mona Lisa. Can you tell the difference?
Redd’s version of the Mona Lisa is on the left, whereas the real painting is on the right. The difference? Well, the eyebrows are raised in Redd’s painting so you can tell that it is a fake.
