There has always been this obsession with the others we share this planet with.
We communicate with them on certain basic levels and yet they inhabit a plane so different from ours: savage, instinctive, a life of sheer survival. At the same time they can do things beyond human abilities: fly through the skies, swim the oceans, apply t

For inspiration, check out Mindcandyman on conceptart. Look at the first couple of pages of his sketchbook (2002) and then jump to about page 40 (2004) to see how far someone can progress in about 2 years (and beyond): http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=870&page=41
Studying realism would be a good first step. Even if you want to work in, say, a comic book style, you need to have a handle on realistic drawing. Knowing realism will help you improve your drawings a lot. Let's say you want to get better at dragons, you could study lizards and snakes for the body structure and birds and bats for wing structure. Dinosaurs as well, but those are a little hard to find nowadays.

A Gallery of Narrative Dreams
A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

There is no cosmic law that states artists must suffer many long years and demeaning day-jobs before a window of opportunity cracks open just enough to hop on through.
Fellow deviant Brian Kesinger is a case in point.
His first “day-job” in 1996—he was hired straight out of his senior year of high school—was drawing Tarzan for Disney.
Brian stayed at Disney and he considers every day there a part of his ongoing education as an artist. He most recent

Illustrating Westeros: ASOIAF Artists Speak VITo say that Dejan Delic's vector artworks dazzle the eye is an understatement. Elaborate shapes and swirls, ornate detailing, and resplendent colours offer up a veritable feast for any ASOIAF fan. No character, however major or minor, is excluded from this embellished styling that the artist appears to master so effortlessly. Whilst such rich presentation would be a triumph alone, Dejan's true talent resides in making each character's personality - their flaws and foibles, power and prestige - shine just as brightly.Illustrating Westeros: ASOIAF Artists Speak VI6 months ago in Art Features More Like This

A Pop Culture Interpretation of The Supernatural
Every culture around the world created gods and other mythical beings by mixing and matching fanged and taloned animal parts—e.g., enormous eagle heads on lions’ bodies—human beings have always seemed to need to believe there are powerful and usually quite vengeful supernatural beings lurking just beyond the candlelight.
Supernatural beings come to serve several purposes:
They kept people on the lighted path of truth and goodness, fearful of exploring beyond;
They were a reminder of the punishment we deser
