7. Show Original Work.

Don't fill your portfolio with copies of other people's designs and characters, especially not rip-offs from the companies you are applying to!

Even if it shows reasonably strong technical skills, copied designs are likely to look bad in comparison to the more famous original, and you will look like less of an artist if you fail to produce original art.  Try to depict things that are local or personal: your hobby, your hometown, something that is important to you, or something that fits with your personal style (if you have one.)  Your work in modeling, animation, and rendering will be improved if you learn to observe detail and draw from real life, matching your 3D work to a familiar piece of reality.  By focusing on something special to you, you'll create more unique and memorable work.
