    I'm a bit confused about what you mean with correct proportions. Her head is the size of a small moon so you can't mean realistic proportions?
    What were you aiming for when you drew it? Right now it looks like it was supposed to be a chibi style drawing but then you drew an almost normal looking body.

    That's true, sorry about the confusion. It is in chibi style, but the legs, for example, aren't correct with regards to the box she is sitting on. Also I feel her posture is off. And where do her hands go?

    Thank you for the reply

    If you know this already, then you can fix those specific issues yourself.

    It's more of a perspective problem than a proportion problem. Fix the box, and the figure questions will answer themselves.
