This study describes a fully automated system for generating caricature images by using a painterly rendering method. This system transforms photos into caricature images automatically. A few similar approaches have been proposed by other researchers including [Gooch et al. 2004] and [Liang et al. 2002]. These methods, however, did not produce satisfying results, as the caricatures produced did not resemble handiwork. By simulating the brush strokes used by painters [Park et al. 2006], we reproduced the brush painting technique and incorporated it into our caricature system.
