# Vertices scales in the wrong direction

Hello there community somewhat of a new user here... I know I probably messed up some setting and, but whenever I extrude and scale vertices they move inwards of the model I dont know what I did or I am doing wrong but instead of scaling on the Y axis only it scales the edge inwards as well. Any help is appreciated

Example: Everything seems fine from the front side

No so from the right side....

How it should've been: I got that curve while scaling it.Why am I getting it.

P.S I am following this tutorial as a guide: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6SOwJDqoPTw&t

• I can't see your problem, could you please show with several screenshots? – moonboots Jul 29 '20 at 10:04
• @moonboots I've updated my question again – iAlbert180 Jul 29 '20 at 10:16
• That is because your are simply pressing s . Solving - press s and press y to scale it on the y axis only. You are scaling it on all axis when you press S. If that solves your problem please inform me to post it as the answer – Nxdhin2005 Jul 29 '20 at 13:06

The problem that is happening is that you have scaled it simply by pressing S . This is happening because while doing rotation, moving or scaling , blender considers the origin of the object as the pivot point for doing all the manipulations.
