A Bit About GDM Originals

GDM Originals is a 3D creative company specializing in low-poly, animation and game-ready character designs. We are passionate about the 3D industry and are constantly learning new skills and techniques to make our work better. 

We've spent the last couple of years in collectible art toy production, so have a particular affinity with 3D printing. With that in mind we have created a 3D Library filled with base models and assets that are print ready. 

We are currently a team of one, but are looking to expand in the future.

We are constantly creating new sculpts for the 3D Library, so check back often or follow us on IG to stay informed.
