Seriously, have you already seen a software which does approximately the
image editing that you have in mind? If not, chances are that it is not
possible or possible only by a group of experts. Drawing a cartoon is
not a thing that a computer can do easily, much less if the only input
is a photograph. Currently, cartoons are made by humans using computers, 
not by an algorithm.

If you can make it work, you'll be a star on SIGGRAPH (a conference
about image processing).
