Oh yeah and take your time, i used to be really hotheaded and tried to finish my paintings as fast as i could which didn't help me improve rapidly. One thing that i do now that im fammilar with the fundamentals is that it put my images side by side with pros paintings. Then i see my mistakes easier, and i try to get my painting to the professional level taking as much time as i can.

If you're willing to spend some money you can sign up for a CGMA class for 600-700 usd, im taking one at the moment. Environment design with james paick.

Good luck!

Here are a few pointers that helped me improve quickly.

First and foremost, get into the habit of painting every day! Even if you dont feel like it, just paint.
Second join some online communities, get to know other artists of a simmilar skill level. So that you can motivate eachother(sketch buddies).
Thrid which took me some time to understand and probably helped the most, is learn the fundamentals! Dont paint mindlessly once you paint every day. Watch feng zhus 59th video "before and after". It really opened my eyes in the matter. If you want to be a concept artist learn perspective first.

Dont worry about designing, become a good painter first. Though dont forget about it, each time you go outisde, browse the internet and you see interesting stuff, ask yourself "how does this work?". Think in forms being, boxes, cones, spheres, cylinders. Most objects consist of these forms and as a concept artist you have to be able to draw anything from any angle.

Lastly have fun!
