    If you're interested in becoming an environment concept artist you ned to understand perspective, composition, scale, texture, color, etc. Best way to go about it is a three-prong approach:

    1) Study from nature (as in get a portable painting setup and go outside and paint - prefererably after taking a workshop or two)
    2) Study great landscape painters both past and present, as well as the top concept and matte people
    3) Study theory from books

    A few good books on landscape:
    "Carlson's Guide to Landscape Painting" John Carlson
    "Drawing Scenery" by Jack Hamm
    "Imaginitive Realism" by Gurney (also covers a lot more than landscape)
    "Drawing and Painting Fantasy Landscapes and Cityscapes" Rob Alexander

    Good luck!
