If your passion is to be a concept artist, then I would say you need to forget about a Masters degree (unless you intend to teach, which is a good back-up plan) and concentrate on refining your skills.

Your portfolio is okay, but you need to improve your life-drawing skills, your understanding of anatomy, colour theory and painting, as well as environmental design and architecture, and industrial design - if you want to compete with 'entry-level concept artists'. The role of the concept artist is a extremely competitive in the industry, and your portfolio needs to stand head-and-shoulders above your peers. Studios will sponsor you if you're what they want. Save your money and attend the GDC career fairs.

I've never brought in an artist based on what level of degree they have - it all boils down to their portfolio (all of the Art Directors I've spoken to feel the same).

Try to find an atelier school near you - a school that teaches classical drawing and painting skills. A lot of the other skills you can learn through self-study and material available online.

Good luck, it's a hard road, but remember it's a life-long journey. If you're passionate about it, let nothing stop you from reaching your goal!
