Use cases



Indoor Scenes


More Images Are Shown In The Supplementary Materials

Online demo


  • Training code: Linux or Windows
  • NVIDIA GPU + CUDA CuDNN for performance
  • Inference code: Linux, Windows and MacOS

How To Use


  • Assume you already have NVIDIA GPU and CUDA CuDNN installed
  • Install tensorflow-gpu, we tested 1.12.0 and 1.13.0rc0
  • Install scikit-image==0.14.5, other versions may cause problems

Inference with Pre-trained Model

  • Store test images in /test_code/test_images
  • Run /test_code/cartoonize.py
  • Results will be saved in /test_code/cartoonized_images


  • Place your training data in corresponding folders in /dataset
  • Run pretrain.py, results will be saved in /pretrain folder
  • Run train.py, results will be saved in /train_cartoon folder
  • Codes are cleaned from production environment and untested
  • There may be minor problems but should be easy to resolve
  • Pretrained VGG_19 model can be found at following url: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1j0jDENjdwxCDb36meP6-u5xDBzmKBOjJ/view?usp=sharing


  • Due to copyright issues, we cannot provide cartoon images used for training
  • However, these training datasets are easy to prepare
  • Scenery images are collected from Shinkai Makoto, Miyazaki Hayao and Hosoda Mamoru films
  • Clip films into frames and random crop and resize to 256x256
  • Portrait images are from Kyoto animations and PA Works
  • We use this repo(https://github.com/nagadomi/lbpcascade_animeface) to detect facial areas
  • Manual data cleaning will greatly increace both datasets quality
