I've quickly kit-bashed something - is this any better?

It's a little better.  So far as the head goes I think it's the realistic hair that is making it look too real for me.  Maybe polygon model the hair including the eye brows.  As everfresh said larger torso and shorter legs could help too.  Change length of arms and size of feet to match.  Doing some sketches until it looks right first could help get everything going the right direction.

    your sketch looks fine, the problem with your 3D version is that you're clinging on to too much detail that fights with the cartoony proportions. notice that in your sketch the whole body - from chest to feet - form a clean line, while your 3D model still has detailed and somewhat realistic muscle definition, defined hips and so on. i mean it's all about which style you wanna go for, maybe you just have something different in mind when you say cartoony than i do. but most people would characterize cartoony with much simpler and cleaner shapes.

    Hmmm , as Fresh pointed out at the moment it's looking weird because you now have more stylised proportions but still have a relatively realistic look, and usually these don't really go together well, if you're going for stylised I'd soften things up a bit so it all flows from top to bottom more smoothly so the whole character has a nice silloette, at the moment he kind of looks like a dwaf with a stretched torso

  • Now I'll have to re-texture him completely, but I think he looks much better now. Thank you all very much for pointing that out!

    Looking way better now.  The arm length should be so the hands are just below the butt area.  I feel like the hands and feet are a little big.  If you look at your sketch it pretty much says the same thing as what I'm saying here.
