the only thing you might wanna look into is that where you have capped it, you put a compression fitting on... some places it is against code for those to be horizontal, they must be vertical. It should be fine, but some people like to be completely up to code. Maybe check it out.
I dont think there will be any drainage problems but something to consider when there are alot of elbows... Try replacing a 90 turn with a tee and put a threaded cap on the unsused end, This can be used as a cleanout if needed. Looks like good work.

Actually that cap you put for the tub is exactly what i meant as a cleanout.. depending on that location it is exactly what you need... you would be able to get in with a snake if it ever backed up.
