Names in other languages
In Doubutsu no Mori, the novel painting can be obtained from Crazy Redd's Furniture Emporium for 1,960 Bells, a treasure hunt, or trees when the player has good luck. It does not have any color for the purpose of fêng shui.
For villagers who have this item placed on the floor in their house, there is a chance that the villager will gift it to the player.
While the item still appears in Doubutsu no Mori+, it is unobtainable through normal means; it could only be obtained if the player used the Data Moving Service to transfer save data from Doubutsu no Mori that contained the item, and it does not appear in the catalog. If the player tries to donate the novel painting to the museum in Doubutsu no Mori+, Blathers will treat it as a non-donatable item.
Leftover dummy item
In Animal Crossing, the novel painting is still leftover in the game data as a dummy item, unobtainable without gameplay modification or glitches. It has the unused name "novel painting" and uses the dummy model, a white triangle with red Japanese text reading ダミー (damī, dummy). Its name was also translated to other languages in the European version of Animal Crossing, with the name "cuadro original" in Spanish, "toile originale" in French, "Marc" in German, and "quadro romantico" in Italian.
The item remains unused in Doubutsu no Mori e+, where, as with all dummy items in that game, its name appears as "かぐ？" (kagu?, furniture?) in the player's inventory. However, when dropped on the ground outside, its name from Doubutsu no Mori+ is shown. The item appears as the same dummy model but cannot be placed down in the player's house if in their inventory.
