DSG IS NOW OFFERING PRIZES!
- Now, Dsg is not a contest, and shouldn't be looked at as one, but I would enjoy seeing users try harder to push themselves. I would also look to see more users doing the dsg. The webmaster @ Http://www.domai.com has offered a 30-day membership every week, that will be used for the best dsg artists of the week.
How do i win??? How is Judging?
- Myself and Mtomczek(the dsg guardian) will be judging. The judging will be based on who does the best work over the week, or maybe on a single piece that just blows us away. No winner can win twice in a single month(aka 4 unique winners per month).
How will i know if i win?
- I'll PM the winners and ask them for their email. Once i get the email I will converse with the webmaster @ Http://www.domai.com and the password will be sent from them. Winners of this prize MUST be over the age of 18 though(sorry federal law), though i will be trying to find an alternitive for the younger audience.
How can i increase my chancing of winning?
- Percipate and in the dsgs and do your best is the all we ask for
Will there be other speciality contests with prizes?
- We can only hold other speciality contests when we are given prizes to the dsg. Two of these contests have been done already! If you would like to donate a prize to the dsg, pm davi.

uhh, so the prize is porno? :eek:
Dude, a pic of a naked female form isnt porn. so if a nude model comes in to pose for a art class, is that the same as going to a strip joint?

ok, porno isnt the most diplomatic description I could use, but its still an odd prize.
I can see where your coming from. But Domai is a sweet place to get reference on the female form. porn and artistic nudity are two different animals my friend. the masters never painted women doing lewd or degrading things. but they painted naked women.
Yeah, a girl posing or standing there or what have you is not porn...however, a girl like spreading her legs open and showing all kinds of....er...software is porn...
A good plan today is better than the perfect plan tomorrow.
can we see the post that the winners submitted? or something..
it's based on the full week. i first talley which artists did my favorite pieces. then i keep going through the posts and adding people and usually one or two artists will get 3 points, so i look back at their works and pick between them. it's not based on single entry but their weekly effort.
and domai.com is not porn. the photos are extermely artistic and a fantastic site to learn the female anatomy from. I don't know of any male sites like this... if there is one let me know.
i added the dates now, and WhiteC is this weeks winner, this was probably the hardest week to vote from..
Iotrez won this week,
WhiteC never sent me a reply to the pm i sent him, so i haven't been able to give him his account/pw...
Davi.. check ur dates. " 2003?" and "31"
Its a great idea but as it stands only the elite artists would stand a chance right? I mean the noobs can't really compete against the professionals... Maybe have a most improved section (or something) to keep the mid-level/low-level artist interested/motivated.
I think the lower skilled artists would benefit from free porn access just as much... i mean tastefull figure reference...
Just a thought...
it helps keep the great artists around that fuel the dsg, and it also helps some of the artists to push alittle harder for a goal of some sort.
and i do look at many things when i pick the artists out.
ide loose myself in porn i hope i win . ill have to try harder..
I believe someone is running behind on choosing weekly winners. Who is the winner for the previous week?
Also, I never got my prize from the Christmas contest- bleh o well
the last was hunger_artist
yeah i'm alittle sloopy a picking these on time
hmm mike... i'm not sure i remember who was suppose to send your prize, it was offered from a CA user...
Hey davi- np I was just curious if you were still pickin winners or not. I have been preocupied with other things so I havent been participating in the dsg as much.
As far as the prize, I never heard anything so I contacted mtom- bout it..he said he would contact the person who was gonna send it, but..that was over a month ago or more..
It's no big deal, was just curious about what happened.
i believe we gave him the info but i completely forget who that was, and yeah we are still doing the prizes, i'll pick one out for last week tomorrow, i need to get a program that will give me remindered on sundays to pick a winner.
sorry maybe i didnt notice your mail... i dont participate dsg that much by these days. Anywya, just want to told that im still alive , i look at the board but i dont take time to draw stuff.. ill try to push in the coming weeks.
Do we have any new winners yet? I wouldnt mind some Domai, i need to draw more womens. thx davi
it's porn. end of story. Look at the language used on the site, many of the poses, and then read the dictionary definition of porn. "Tasteful", perhaps, but still porn.
Still a good reference on the female form though. Frankly I'd rather have a live model in a life drawing class. Not so... distracting as these sorts of photos.
whether it's pornography or not is in the eye of the beholder...it's all whether you look at it for arousal or for practicing the female form.
So now we're using literary deconstructionism to justify using domai as a prize site?
Crazy talk. It's intended as porn, therefore it is, but how you use it is still up to you.
Actually, if you go by what it says on the site, it's not intended as porn.
Although it is in and of itself intended to be appealing to "Dirty old men" (it's to do with the name). It really does depend on how you look at it, and who you listen to as to whether it's porn or not. (personally I see it as a good source for images to practice drawing the female form with).
I just find it kind of hilarious that for most people in the world nowadays, nudity = porn (which is kinda rediculous). Most of the poses on the public sections of Domai are arranged in a way to just be visually appealing, there are a few that are borderline though. I think overall though, it really isn't meant as "porn" by most (not all) of the photographers/artists there.
