As soon as I saw that this week's topic was monochromatic, I thought of doing something in green. Then, when I saw what the IF topic was (monster), the idea I came up with seemed perfect for a green palette. As I was coloring it, however, a bit of greenish orange seemed to sneak its way in, so I thought...hmmm..should I submit it here, or do another piece? Well, the truth of the matter is that I realized as the weekend wore on that I just won't have time to do another piece, so here's what I have - an almost completely monochromatic monstress, done with the best intentions of following the rules:

I uploaded my images to flickr, but they only show if i'm logged in.

In fact, of the 90 group images that show when I'm logged in, fewer than 50 show when I'm not.

What can I do to make my images visible to everyone? I selected the radial button for public, but that doesn't seem to be working...
