*I'm just going to copy-and-paste my comment i asked the Slowvember contest announcement, since i'm not sure if anyone replies to those!:
Hi! I just found this site and this contest, it sounds fun! I "completed" a painting yesterday, but i'm thinking I want to go back into it and touch it up until the end of the month, to bring it to the next level, and then submit it to this contest. Would I be allowed to do that, or would I have had to have known about this contest before starting the painting? Also, are we forbidden from working on a different painting other than our submission during this month (if we decide to enter this contest)? I'm not sure if anyone responds to these comments, if not i'll wait until next month so i can make sure i'm following the rules correctly :D
@amelia-bothe I am sure you are fine with working on your painting and then submitting. The point this month is to take your time and make it the best you can. Don't forget to post your progress along the way, it helps getting feed back from the community. Good Luck!
