Stefan and Edi,

Hold it, Im showing the hands facing upwards, that's what a back of hand STRIPE on the hands shows. It's facing UPWARDS. Not BACK, and the fingers are pointing UP. I went through the options and the split hand is what SIDE VIEW is. I see the fingers aren't attached, so it is causing confusion. Let me try again. 

I'm on a computer that doesn't have the right software, I'll try to fix it. I was doing a quick fix and it didn't work. Sorry about that. I can see the variant, but this Mac doesn't have Firefox. 

I will fix it and repost.

Hi Charles,
 
I look at the first sign ..
 
Well I do not know what should be done .. I did not read any description or could not find any video... ;-(
 
Nevertheless  .... it is almost impossible to perform this ... back of hands toward the body moving down ????  ouch!
 
What do you think?
 
Stefan

Sign first - dystrophy. From your description, to show the fingers in the position you want, I find the edge-on position the easiest to understand. This has the palm from the side so the lower half is black with the upper white. In addition, the description doesn't have the hands touch so they need to have separate paths.
 

 
Sign second - your question was how to show movement forward while keeping the hand in place, sort of like a hinge.
one, the right hand was backward. the thumb is the shorter hook. To show that the hand remains in contact, use the pressure ~ mark. This holds the hand in place while it rotates forward.
 
Here is an example from Brazilian sign language, the sign for jello (gelatino) where the hand trembles.
 
Note that both hands are showed edge on so that it doesn't get confusing for the reader. The top hand touches the bottom hand, and presses on the bottom hand. There is movement but it is of the fingers (the little arrows) the combination of * and ~ ensures that the hands remain in contact and pressing.

Hello!

is only for information.

Thank you for your advice and help. Greetings from sunshine Ljubljana. Edi.
