We built the Sketch2Cartoon system, which is an automatic cartoon making system. It enables users to sketch major curves of characters and props in their mind, and real-time search results from millions of clipart images could be selected to compose the cartoon images. The selected com- ponents are vectorized and thus could be further edited. By enabling sketch-based input, even a child who is too young to read or write can draw whatever he/she imagines and get interesting cartoon images.
