I am a casual Dragon Quest fan (I've played DW1-4 for NES multiple times, I/II/III for SNES a couple times, V with a translation patch once, am still working on VI on my DS, all of VII once, all of VIII once, and most of IX but can't quite stomach the random number generator grueling for all the bonus content).
I'd be hard-pressed to choose favorites as I really like every game in the main series and each one has something to offer, but I'm extra nostalgic about II (and to a lesser extent DQ1) because of growing up with it (/them). Also, VIII was incredibly beautiful and satisfying, and the III SNES remake is just wonderful, so I can definitely recommend DQ Translations' patch for that..
Even though the series is probably not creatively intended to tie together, I periodically love to speculate about how it could, such as the similarity between how the lands in VII are sealed (dark, with black edges where the world drops off) compared to how Alefgard is sealed in III (where you can't sail out into the lands from II or anything, because of similar black edges). VIII's ending bit about Ramia/Elysium really begs for such theorizing, in my opinion! : )
Also, I do a webcomic called Lyrellswood, and some other art, at http://mitsukara.deviantart.com, but I've only done one picture that was Dragon Quest-related and it's kind of old and bad so I wouldn't submit it anywhere. Maybe someday I'll do more...
