An­other pop­u­lar tech­nique used in manga is ‘ke­monomimi’, which lit­er­ally means an­i­mal ears. For in­stance, if some­one is be­ing as sly as a cat, you can draw her with fe­line fea­tures; most no­tably cat ears and a cat tail. You can even go fur­ther with cat eyes that have slit-pupils, and us­ing the shape of cat’s mouth. Why not draw a dis­ap­pointed guy as a sad puppy dog? A fierce mother as a dragon? Like chibi, it can be used for ef­fect in spe­cific scenes, but it’s also pop­u­lar as a char­ac­ter de­sign for fan­tasy sto­ries.
