I think your problem is that the normals are facing in different angles (I hope)
You should be able to fix that by selecting your model and go to
editPolygons/normals/softenHarden+optionBox now set to all hard, results in an edgy look, or all soft wich will do the opposite.

good luck, wht are you making?

most likely you didn't change anything yourself, sometimes when you extrude or move stuff around they just "get" changed. No Idea why that happens, I guess maya tries to assume your preffered normal angle for you. And that's how it looks if a computer makes decisions for you, but maybe it has some completely different reason.

good luck with your walker
