Stockholm Syndrome by CalamityChemist Stockholm Syndrome by CalamityChemist
This piece was done on commission for the band Danny the Skeleton Horse, for their upcoming album 'Stockholm Syndrome'. c: They wanted it stylized, but not too much, so I got to balance realism and exaggeration. It was a lot of fun to do, and they're great to work with (bands typically are, haha). They were nice enough to let me release the art here before they put it to print.

I haven't done album art in a while, so it's been great to warm up and start doing it again.

Hope you like it! :heart:

Pretty awesome cover. The hands grabbing for her are pretty cool. What is Stockholm Syndrome it sounds like some sort of mental illness.

Thanks! Stockholm Syndrome is a psychological phenomenon, where hostages start to feel empathy and become attached to their captors.

if i see this in a CD store I'll run over to it, pick it up, and run around screaming "I KNOW WHO DID THIS I KNOW WHO DID THIIISSSSSS!" I'll get weird looks but I don't care :heart:

if i could, i'd honestly just get this for the art on the cd case.

I love it, and especially that dress! Is that band good? I mean, what do they play? It looks like they have a neoclassical style, judging by this cover...

Aww, thanks! I'm glad you like it. The band is quite good--but they aren't what you might expect! They're actually a progressive/experimental rock band. c:
