Nobody at the Ghoul Gate by alsobroken Nobody at the Ghoul Gate by alsobroken
Illustration based on another great Neil Gaiman novel.

From the book description:
Nobody Owens (Bod) is an unusual boy who inhabits an unusual place-he's the only living resident of a graveyard.
Can a boy raised by ghosts, werewolves, and other cemetery denizens face the wonders and terrors of the worlds of both the living and the dead?

A few full-size details can be seen here:

Loved this story... I honestly have to say I had a very strong feeling upon seeing this piece that it was in reference to Graveyard Book. The title confirmed it!

I know NADA about digital art, and the only things I know about Gaiman is from Tori Amos' lyrics - but this is a great piece, I love the whole mood, the details, the darkness, but most of all, the "thing" rising from the grave.
