We propose a new system for a generation of a personal color-illustration from a facial image. The proposed system has the following features. It is possible to generate personal color-illustrations that take after the person in the input image. The system requires a small amount of user's operation using its interactive interface to obtain his/her facial informations. A skin region of the illustration is painted the color just like his/her skin. The illustration is deformed to have facial expression, and to exaggerate the facial features. Some accessory parts can be combined with the illustration. We confirmed the effectiveness of the proposed system by user survey.
