Cartoonize Your Personal Photos
With MSN Cartoon Beta, you can now convert your personal pictures into cartoons! Amazing but true. However, I found that the cartoon produced look least like to the real photo. Oh well, still beta.

And from that, they will draw out your cartoon picture! Amazing is it? Read more to see a live demonstration of the application in process as well as the address to it!
