eye recess and holes

Hi

if you look at this mesh here and many others also, you can see that the eye area is cut out (you can see the back facing polys from the rear of the head. It is not a recess that you can fit an eyeball into but an actual hole in the geometry (much like you would do when using regular poly modeling).

I think this technique would be much better than creating a recess and then poping an eye into it.

how do you go about achieving this? As i understand it is best to bring in a solid mesh into zbrush, and certainly creating geometry within z (such as zspheres) will create a solid mesh.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
Tak

most likely the artist created the base mesh in a seperate application and imported for detailing into zbrush

i dont think so, if you look at this overview by antropus http://209.132.69.82/picasso/tutorial.htm he clearly starts with zspheres, but ends up with a holes in the eye sockets

hmm, in the second video from your link, he starts with the eyes covered, and then goes of screen and presses something and it puts holes where the eyes are...

is it possible that they are hiding the eyes using the shift+ctrl command

I am not 100% sure what he did there, but it looks to me like he did a delete hidden on the polys that were his eyes at a low level. so basically just deleted the polys and thatís what made the eye socket holes.
