When artists design characters, they draw illustrations viewed from the front, side or slant views. In this paper, we create a 2.5D model using such illustrations. A 2.5D model is a model that is created by arranging deformable billboards in the depth direction, and it can express an appearance of the character between two viewpoints with considering depth information. Our method uses two cartoon-like illustrations and eye directions as inputs. These illustrations are consisted of contours and closed regions painted with uniform colors. Our method finds corresponding regions between two illustrations, and creates a 2.5D model by putting each matched region as a billboard in 3D space. These processes are semi-automatic. By completing regions that appear or vanish, our method can interpolate illustrations with occluded regions.
