How do you check a stylized character's proportions?

My reference drawing looked ok but after modeling I was unhappy. Should i downright exaggerate proportions more if i'm going to do a stylized 3d character ? I do when i'm drawing characters a bit but not a lot.

I come from an illustration background. I'm used to results with a pencil i guess. I've gotten really used to maya interface, but i don't know why i cant model something alive looking in maya. I've seen 3d characters that worked, i know its possible. As of right now though mine look unnatural, the proportions feel wrong even though they're okay.

I'm apologize for the vague question, any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

If your refrence drawing is drawn with correct perspective and rendering, it should work in 3D.
However, sometimes stylized characters that are drawn without perspective ect. don`t work in 3d, then you`ll need to change the desing.
