'stay frosty' by MarcWasHere 'stay frosty' by MarcWasHere
I think I've watched Generation Kill one too many times...and this line popped into my head. Another sketch for today, now that I have a little bit more 'me' time.

.
.
.

(In case those who are wondering which bit im refering to, its in episode 6 where the battalion is holed up for the night, and Godfather tells Colbert, "Be advised Brad: Stay Frosty.")

*Edit: Helmet! After seeing all the Halo comments, I have gone to edit the helmet! Damn Halo designs, every other futuristic trooper is always drawn comparisons to that. Mind you, I do like the designs for the armor of masterchief and the ODST troopers.

To be honest, there's a point where scifi designs share coincidental similarities and motifs and it becomes very difficult to avoid them. But many times folks are really stretching it, when there's really only a 25-30% similarity at best.

I really like the helmet design--or is this the redesign? People with no imagination will always draw comparisons to the latest lure flashing before the eyes of the hoi polloi--ignore them.

i love how bulky yet dynamic the suit looks, i can imagine whole squadrons of these guys popping from the shadows of an urban war scenario, countering much bigger and unprepared forces in guerilla warfare

Assassin 2 actual here, check that status. Be advised that is an incorrect spot, repeat, incorrect spot. Recon unit over at Bravo must have spotted Iceman saying that a hundred times. Godfather is using it ironically. How do you copy?

Dude.. I love pictures with cool "commando" armor and this futuristic look rocks. I do wonder how the original looked. How "halo"-esque was it? I honestly don't think it matters as long as you make a good drawing :)

Head armor reminds me more of the Jugs from MW2 then HALO...well if the brim of the top of them over shadowed the mouth guard at least. Nice piece, when are you going to get back to some present day SF :P

I like Halo but it has become annoying how Halo has so much in it that everything ends up having something to do with the games, even if it has nothing to do with video games at all. Really cool pic too

well isnt it obvious?when you say 'stay frosty' you obviously mean to stay cool . Frosty=icy=cool .remain calm or cold like ice =p. One of the many military terms that is in usage..Like 'Oscar Mike'.Some are like codes others are a bit obvious

Its the context in which that phrase is used that rather defines the meaning of it.
