The M. K. …or a fake?

First: the seller doesn’t state it’s the original M K painting.
The only things that may lead to think it’s the original Jose Emroca Flores painting is price and lack of informations.

Second: it’s very nicely done.

Now, I presume for the first time ever, we have a good example of video game art forgery!

I’m sure you’re thinking: “I’ve seen that crazy painting before”.
Well, the item pictured is for sale here, on eBay.

But it’s not the famous “The M.K.” featured inside the cool I AM 8-BITÂ book. It’s a nicely done fake.

Let’s compare just a tiny area:

That’s all. Thanks to a friend that gave me the link to the auction!

  1. This is definitely a fake.

    I own the original “The M.K.” by the awesomely talented Jose Emroca Flores. I bought it from the very first i am 8-bit show way back in 2005, and couldn’t have been a happier camper.

    A decent forgery, but a forgery nonetheless.
