    This is called Half Dome, one of the more notable mountains in Yosemite National Park.

    And this is a quick image of the formation the Thundercats crashed into in "Swan Song".

    I know people have thought I was seeing things before. But what do you guys think? Coincidence?

    Cool comparison. I think both mountains are similar.

    Clearly, but do you think it was intentional or coincidental?

    Coincidental.

    I actually think it was probably intentional. Not in an "I'm going to draw Yosemite's Half Dome" kind of way, but that the Half Dome was probably used as a reference for the artist. The shapes, especially from that angle, are just too similar.

    Of course, we'll never have proof. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
