In this paper, we proposed an automatic facial caricaturing system based on multi-view Active Shape Model (ASM). The ASM is used for automatic extraction of feature points. But it is difficult to apply the conventional ASM to facial images with pose variations. We developed a multi-view ASM bank, which includes various ASMs corresponding to each pose. The multi-view ASMs can extract feature points correctly not only for the fontal facial images but also for pose variations. Moreover, we developed an automatic facial caricaturing system. This system consists two parts: automatic extraction of feature points based on multi-view ASMs, and B-spline based caricaturing.
