That is a shape you will almost certainly have to UV unwrap manually., so now is the time to conquer your fears, get into bodypaint, and get it done ! :)

Here is the tutorial that gave me my first decent understanding of how to do that. You need to watch the next 2 videos after it as well, but if you do that, and take it all in, you won't have another question about UV mapping again.

It's hard to be sure without the scene file, but I am guessing that a single seam round the back, and cylindrical projection will get you headed in the right direction.

CBR
