They’re not going to do anything that requires more animation, Sindra.

#1396193 I miss this weirdly specific style of 90s art

I never knew about The Rippingtons until this thread, but I fucking love them now.

I also think that their cover art is the key to unlocking this whole thing.

nickelodeon-rockos-modern-life-invader-z

 

Rocko's Modern Life was an entire cartoon based around this aesthetic. I'm sure there were others.

I want to say this style was around in the 80s too, I think I've seen it on some 80s album covers but specific ones aren't coming to mind.

You both TOTALLY hit this on the head, and I'm surprised I didn't think of either of these for my initial post.  That Great White beer in particular is dead the fuck on.

 

Is there a specific name for this type of art/aesthetic?

Man, I hated the cover of that Nintendo guide when I was a kid. I was a How to Win at Nintendo Games reader :P

You can take your boring guide book cover and go straight to hell!

 

But yeah, the content of this book wasn't good (if I remember correctly), but the vaguely menacing art sold me on it.

I think so.  The cover for "A Show of Hands" is kinda similar.

I don't know what to call this, but images like this seemed to be everywhere when I was growing up.

I can best describe it as being surreal, very colorful, and with some southwest influence.  I remember it being prominent right before the whole grunge aesthetic took over.  Please share examples and help me gush about something amorphous that has been lost in time.

Bandicam. It’s a bitch and a half to get the audio routing right, and it seems to change every time, but it’s otherwise great. Glad you guys like the vid!

everytime i see your videos, i feel like a pleb.

My fx chains are so much simpler than yours.

 

but i also like your approach of stacking EQs, especially for quick comparison and easy undo, i adopted that from your videos.

That's a good thing!  I tend to go overboard with that stuff sometimes.  If you're getting results you're happy with and NOT using a huge plugin chain, that's preferable.  The end sound is all that matters.

I did a test mix for Pingo's Christmas album a few months back, along with a video going over my process.  He said it's okay if I share it, so here it is:

 

 

Thanks again, Andre!
