I'm 21, I just finished my art school, specifically in video games.
As I learned many things there (2D, 3D modeling/aniamtion, Game/Level Design) I didn't have the time to really improve my skills in digital art to a professional level.
So I entered the level up program and will be posting my creative work here from now on to see the evolution.
I'm only doing thumbnails for now, trying to be more spontaneous, working my lighting/angle of camera etc.
I usually have a very slow process of work and need lots of references (even in the beginning, which is my problem), so I'm trying to stay at a stage where I don't need those.
I will maybe try to make some thumbnails around a specific subject, rather than painting random things.
Here are 3/4 concepts done last year for 2 different projects :
Environment from the last 3/4 months :
Recent thumbnails I've done :

ok sorry I should have been more clear in my comment. Basicly at this moment it is very easy to
confuse the environment as a myst-y cave or dungeon with high bridges that span over underground caverns. Kind of like in the LOTR movie
Well when I started this thumbnail the idea was that it was a place in the sky, but at some point I actually took the Moria and the treasure room of Smaug as a reference for the huge architecture. So without realizing it, I guess I went for an underground dungeon.
If I follow the idea of an underground dungeon, it actually opens others possibilities.
I'm trying to work more spontaneously, to be more creative, so I guess that even if I already set an environment, if I have another idea, I won't stick to the first one.
I'm still trying to find my pwork process.
@ Agerkvist : Thanks a lot . I didn't have any subject in the beginning, so it's not like I had any constraint .
+ The goal of my thumbnails is as you say to go with what pops up.
I will soon post a final version in b&w of the underground "dungeon". I'm having trouble finishing it but I think it's because I'm not use to pushing a painting this far. So I will finish it and move on.
Best thumbnails from this week, a lot of bad ones (and even those are not that interesting) :
