We present a novel approach to producing facial caricature with Simpson cartoon style based on Moving Least Squares (MLS). We take advantage of employing the caricature stylization rule of caricature artist, Justin. Our method allows Simpson-style cartoon character similar to user’s features by using Justin’s technique, which is a set of caricature stylization rules. Our method transforms input photo image into Simpson style caricature by using MLS approximation. The unique characteristics of user in the photo can be detected by comparing to the mean face feature and the input face feature extracted by AAM(Active Appearance Model). To exaggerate the detected unique characteristics, we set up the exaggeration rules using Justin’s technique. In addition, during the cartooning process, user's hairs and accessories are used to the deformed image to make a close resemblance. Our method preserves the reliable and stylized caricature through the exaggeration rules of the actual caricature artist's techniques. From this study, we can easily create a Simpson-style cartoon caricature to resemble user's features by combining a caricature with existing cartoon researches.
