I think it's a little bit too simple?
though simpleness can be good wallpapers, in fact some people tends to stick with simplicity in their walls, I think your wallpaper doesn't give any impact and somehow blending too much with the background. also maybe because there's no signature?
but if you want to improve the wall, you can try adding some text, typography tends to be useful at simple wallpapers, even only a few texts.
here are some examples :

good luck!

I have to agree with Rissa-chi. It is to simple. Maybe give her a different colour, what I mean is her skin colour. I'd recommend flipping the image the right way as well. And as Rissa-chi said, "you can try adding some text, typography tends to be useful at simple wallpapers, even only a few texts". And also add a signature. Even if it's a really small one. That way people won't rip-off your work.

I'm moving to Ireland so I won't be online much.
I'll try reply to your message when I can.

thank-you for your comments and one more question i couldn't seem to find in a faq. does the signature have to direct to minitokyo.net or to any site such as a personal graphics site?

I think it's any site. But for my signature I just put Drakill. I don't put MT or TAG or AP or whatever. But that's your choice. You can if you want.

The sig can be anything you want, as long as your work can be linked back to you. For example, say you signed your work with a different username; in your wallpaper's description, you have to mention "hey, even though the sig's different from my username here, it's still me, just the account on another site" or something. But it's generally best to sign your works with your username (if it's common, you can write "Wallpaper by pawnto8thsquare on Minitokyo") :)

Regarding your wallpaper, like everyone said, it's too simple. Try adding some shapes behind her or playing with the layout. Here are some links that might help with the look you're aiming for:
Minimalism | Directional arrows | Circles | icebox270534's gallery (her style's mostly minimalistic)

pandemonium91 pretty much summed it all for you :]
try to put wallpaper by [__________].minitokyo.net or something, or your username only, as long there's a sig to show that the wallpaper is made by you
