'Tis the season soon again, which reminds me of something that's always been bugging me greatly: drawing trees wrong. I remember having had issues of wrongly drawn trees at the age of six, and I still do. To illuminate what happens when you THINK you know perfectly well what something looks like, so well that there's no point checking reference pictures of  something that's SO OBVIOUS that a child can draw it.

Can anyone spot a problem with these 3d trees:

the CG trees all the branches point down... whereas the real nes you've hilighted they grow up. Is that it?

PS - thanks for the egg linky... :D

all coniferous trees' branches grow upward, not just the ones he's highlighted!

That's right, upwards. But for example Christmas trees are almost always drawn with branches going downwards, and I suppose that's created a strong mental image in the back of people's heads that they tend to draw or model evergreens that way. That sort of a structure is taken as given to the extent that artists often don't even bother to check what they really look like.

hahah, a testament to how inbred the imagery in our heads has become.

it seems like all the information available to us nowdays is third hand, specially in digital mediums and the internet.
