Beautiful examples, Rachel! As you mentioned, a skilled craftsman and big budget is one option; also, digital CNC fabrication has opened the door for homeowners and architects to custom-design a dormer and have it pre-built and installed at the home (faster and cheaper than building by hand).

Here's an article about it from Fine Homebuilding: http://www.finehomebuilding.com/item/28756/cnc-manufactured-framing-replaces-site-built-custom-dormers
