I figure I should start by introducing myself. I'm a soon to be graduate from the University of Connecticut looking to get into freelance concept design, and maybe, one day, work for Wizards of the Coast.

Good start. Let's see some more.
This is something I'm working on now:

You have a good start here. I see some good use of line and some nice attention to darks. I would say when you do those digitals, try and stay away from black when doing the grey scale image. Might push the values and get them just so before coloring over it. One thing that really helped me was watching some of David Chan's videos or just search "digital painting" on youtube. There are some really helpful things on there.
That last B&W is really great though. Looks like it might be taken from something, but that has some real presence and it is just a head! Hang in there and keep at it. ^_^
me likey, spesh that reclining lady, looks like ur comfortable with value!
Some really good stuff here
Just keep on working and you will improve a lot=)
Studies are looking good, keep it up!
Last image is cool I wonder tho if the green of the mountain would kind of seep through the fog a bit, maybe like a gradient or something? Idk not too much reference on these kinds of things. I like the painting and the concept in particular
I think, you are on a good way with your studies! always go on with them.
Maybe you can try to work more with masses and 3D forms whan you do gesture drawings, not just so many contour lines.
Some more digital still life paintings would be good too, because your colours haven't a natural look at moment. Life painting, photo studies and studies from the old masters can help
At some point I'll try the gestures with a sketchbook, I totally understand about the three dimensional shapes. Going back to the sketchbook though, I'm better traditionally. Maybe I'll lengthen the gesture time so I can focus on shapes over lines.
