The only physical difference is the neurological pathways that develop over the course of development, but both intelligence and creativity arise from our relatively high functioning prefrontal cortex.

The real difference is the creative's pathways are not derived or favored by the survival functionality of abstract thought.

General intelligence provides a measurable survival enhancement and artistic creativity is the result of not needing to use all available resources to survive.
