Default Hand Job

Hi
I am having a problem with a polygon hand I modeled. It seems that when ever I apply a texture to the model, it becomes distorted and parts of it becomes partly transparent.
Is this a modeling issue or just a texturing one?
Can the problem be solved without having to remodel?

Thanks.

You probably didn't map out the uvs properly on the fingers and because of this, maya doesn't know how to apply the texture.

I believe AnthonyCg is correct. Looks like it's your UV's. A quick test is to do an automatic UV on your hand, I'm betting the transparency will go away. If so, then just undo (Ctrl_Z) the automap and get to work on mapping the fingers like AnthonyCg suggested. Good luck!

Yep, doing an Automatic Mapping on the hand did the trick.
the transparency went away too.
Thanks for the help.
