I recently read 'Memory and Dream' by Charles de Lint, which is very good btw. Anyway, without giving too much away, the people/creatures an artist paints come to life, only they don't bleed or dream. They say this is because they don't have a red crow (heart) beating it's wings inside them. I really liked the imagery that evoked, thus the picture. This was originally done in pencil crayons, but I made it all glowing using different selections and the Neon Glow filter in Photoshop 7. It looks more...magical now, tho it kinda hurts my eyes a little. ;) NNNOOOO, the light! Anyway, you can see the original -here-.
