I drew the FBI swat operators from siege but in modern, workable, and accurate gear.
Tried to keep the general aesthetic of the of the operators while bringing their kit into the 21st millennium, lol. After a year of playing this game I got really tired of looking at late 90′s SWAT gear on operators from this century. I thought I could update their design in the most believable way possible.
For anyone wondering what this skull would look like with hair and skin on it. Congenital hydrocephalus, or “water on the brain”, was an intractable condition until the 20th century, when effective shunts were developed that could alleviate the pressure within the skull. “Internal” in this case means that the cerebrospinal fluid is building up within the ventricles of the brain. In external hydrocephalus, the CSF builds up around the outside of the brain, in the subarachnoid region.
