    I would start with the Search function: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/search.php

    Almost every question you have can be answered by searching thread titles.

    If you want to be concept artist then you need to draw concept art.

    1. Start drawing.
    2. Get yelled at for doing it wrong.
    3. Go to college/art school. *This step is optional for some, mandatory for others.*
    4. Learn the 'proper' rules.
    5. Break some 'proper' rules.
    6. Experiment with mediums, styles, content, and figure your inner self out.
    7. Keep at it.
    8. Get hired for your work.
    9. ?????
    10. PROFIT!

    That's all the steps I can think of.

    Wait... What were we talking about?

    There's a time when you just have to stop drawing and start asking questions.

    That time isn't now.

    My knowledge of scientific biological transmogrifications is only outmatched by my zest for Kung-Fu treachery.

    well you've come here so your at least on the right track.

    Post some of your wrok in the Sketchbook area so people can start critiquing it. there are a tons of tutorials here and there and an excellent list of downloads and DVDs you can buy right here on the sight created by industry pros and the founders of the site itself. start drawing anything and everything. Pay attention to how things work and are they feasible.

    Good luck

    Keep drawing and eventually look at schools that know what they're doing.
