Asking for feedback on my first unwrapping + help to finish it

sigh I just deleted the whole post through closing the tab … Anyway, first of all I’d like to thank everyone who helped me with my UV questions I had so far :yes:.

So I did my first unwrapping and I’d like to know if it’s executed correctly. Is there too much stretching? Or is the mapping approach completely wrong?

Also I’d like to know how I can make a smooth transition at the end of my model. I can’t seem to come up with a way to do this.

Problem area:

I would try a more uniform unwrap, because presently, you won’t be able to get near the ammount of detail around the edges, as near the center. This is not an optimum usage of pixels.

Here’s an example of how I would go about it.


Thanks a lot I’ll give it a try :)!
