This image takes me about a little over 30 minutes to finish.

A lot of concept art or illustration is all about telling story. In this one, I have an idea similar to David vs Goliath. It is a story of a little archer bunny guy who took on a Giant Gryphon and defeat him to protect his clan or his bunny family. I think if you look at the image, you should be able to get the story.
In this tutorial I start with choosing my color palette and composition. Once I have some vague or rough idea, I can then start to explore with shape on my canvas. Then I tackles on the character design with the back/side lighting. At this stage, I only focus on big shapes and lighting to get the overall look and feel of the character. Once I get a rough idea on the bunny character. Then I start to add the fallen Gryphon behind him and go back to polish the main character, the bunny. Then the rest will take care of itself, I will just add the detail to the story as I go on painting.
This time though I will have a solid idea of what I want to paint. But sometime, I will just let the visual shapes and color guide me as I go.
Again I usually start my image from shapes and build those shape up along with composition in mind. The lighting and value.

Tips on speedpainting. Keep it simple first and make your image clear and easy to read or identify.
Things you should focus on primarily.
1) Shapes
2) Lighting and mood
3) Edges and depth of field.
