Showing off your works are nice, but what about your goals? Are you looking to be hired independently per project, or are you looking for a steady job with a company? Are you looking to get the job done, or looking for partners to work with? Do you not have a specific goal?
How about an estimate on 1 character with 8 directional attack and 8 directional blocking animations? His legs would be separate from his body so that they have a running, idle and jumping animation. maybe 5 other upper body animations just in case
