Node Texture issue

Hi guys! I have an issue with the node shader I am applying to a character I designed. I followed this tutorial to create a Clay shader. On the body it works fine, but on the arms and legs, even applying a new/separate material to it, the fingerprints texture looks way too stretched.
I also, tried scaling down the X and Y in the Mapping node, but stills the same.
Does anyone have an idea what is going on? I am a new Blender user and still learning how it works.
Here are some images for reference:

Hi @YeyeVega

Have you tried applying scale to the object, select object CTRL A?

Hi @AlphaChannel! Thanks for the quick answer. Just did it and stills the same… :expressionless:

Have you unwrapped yr object for UV’s?

If you want, and can, post the file here, I’ll have a look for you.


At :35 in the video he mentions that if you are going to do this with a character your going to have to UV unwrap.


@AlphaChannel thanks for being so kind. I would like to know how do I unwrap an object in Blender?
I come from Maya and don’t know if its kinda the same. First would like to try it by myself and if I can’t will send you the file regarding some help.

Loadsa tuts on this,

But basically, if you have prior knowledge,

edit mode > edge select yr seam > mark as seam, > unwrap using one of the suitable methods.



There is ton of materials on how to do unwrapping:
