I would say it is not about the quantity but the quality.
Six or seven really amazing pieces are much better than a hundred bad ones.
Try focusing separately on different subjects; environment, characters, props and objects.... and combining them into ‘key moments’ that tell a story.
Show them to some of your friends, artists, parents and tutors. Ask for honest opinions. Now here is the trick...
It can be hard to listen to honest feedback about your work, but if you can take it onboard, you can get some insight into what bits are working and which bits are unclear.
If they tend to agree you are strongest at characters and animals, for example, then consider spending time getting even better at that rather than the instinct to work on your weakest areas. If you can become the specialist ‘character concept person’ then employers will more likely seek you out.
Best of luck!!
