I recommend checking out anything by Keith Thompson. You've probably seen his art before without even realizing it. He does really great creatures, which are my favorite fantasy art subject, and is also fucking awesome at anything even vaguely steampunk.
He illustrates a really cool alternate-universe WWI book series by Scott Westerfield, too.
Obviously I cannot get enough of this shit. <3
