Not bad.

However, if it were me, I'd steer clear of using material where you've basically plugged your own elements into a tutorial. Your beginning and ending graphics obviously came from this tutorial, right here on the Cow.

It's an especially bad idea, if you're not going to deviate from the paint-by-numbers and you end up with something that looks just like the result of the tutorial. Now if you take the "results" and tweak it and re-color and alter it (highly) - you get the point I'm sure - then you might get by with it.

In my opinion though, unless you completely modify the results, you run the risk of being called out by the intereviewer (or others on "their" side). The folks in question have likely seen the tutorials that you've mimicked. You'll be plainly showing them that you can follow step-by-step directions but you're not showing them any creativity or innovation- which would be so much more valuable than proving that you can operate the software.

Just my 2 cents on the matter. Good luck in the future!
