Pixar style Kid Proportions

Hello, I'm in the process of creating a child model and I wanted to make her have the pixar style kid look (Big head small body) but I'm having trouble with the proportions..I'm thinking like Boo in monsters ink or Agnes from Despicable me, but it's hard to find full/straight stills of them. I tried to eye the proportions using their head as a measurement but it's difficult. If anyone has any suggestions or links...or anything at all that could help me out I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

Donīt know if this will be useful, but here is something you could do if you have a pic of something you want to figure out proportions on if you donīt quite trust your eyesight

Just fire up the pic in photoshop and trace the main shapes, i.e head, chest, hip, legs etc.
Then you can easily measure of the head and see the proprotions. In the case of the charming Boo she is approximately 3 heads tall and 1 head wide at the shoulders.With more time and more source pics you could do this superaccurately for every detail like facial features, armlengths etc.

Hereīs a pic
