Adding small and subtle details to your characters is a great way to set them apart and bring focus to a particular area of interest. For example, placing a cutie mark near the mouth can draw the viewer’s eyes toward a character’s soft, plump kissable lips. One tiny addition can have an effect that’s much bigger than one would expect.
While her personality may leave much to be desired, Poison-type trainer Clara (from Pokémon Sword and Shield) has a cutie mark that certainly draws your eyes to her adorably made-up face.
