"Let me tell you that I agree completely with your spelling. I had a very close look at the "Lessons in SignWriting Textbook and Workbook " by Valerie Sutton. chapter 3 Hands Group 3 page 36 shows a long listing of various handshapes.
For quite a while I decided to write the bentfingers the way you suggest it in your gif. I feel comfortable with that and my students ask me to mirror the hand if there are other spellings in my texts which I wrote months ago !
All the best and keep on asking !!!
SW is a wonderfull thing and all of us ins Germany who got in contact with it so far are very interested in using it more and more.
All the best -

Subject: Rigth and Left
Here in our basic course of sign writing and teaching the third group of handshapes all the deaf (and I really mean ALL of them), just didn't agree with the right and left symbols..I will explain better:
Right hand, bent 3 (look at the fingers drawn at the right side)
Now look at the same right hand and the fingers are drawn at the left side
and so on...
If we use our visual sense we should agree with them...how can it be ?
For them the correct hands would be:
and so on...
Can anyone help us ?
