Caricatures are exaggerated, cartoon-like portraits that try to capture the essence of the subject with a bit of humor or sarcasm. In this paper, we extend the automatic caricature generation algorithm developed previously in two important aspects: 1) we improve the facial feature detection procedure by incorporating active appearance models, and 2) we extend the original 2D model to stereo by fusing caricature images obtained from different views. The result is a simple yet effective procedure for creating stylized 3D models with a high degree of flexibility in selecting artistic flavors.
