Hi Charles, I see you are using the diagonal arrows which make sense.  

Looking just at the right hand, since the left is a mirror image, your handshape has the backs of the hands facing up, and slanted to the right.  The fingers are pointing right-out, but not down (I think).  

 

What I want to know is whether it is possible to show the orientation of the hands so that the right hand fingers point down-right-out.    I know that the hands can slant in two dimensions – right-out, right-down, right-up etc.  I think there is no way to show an orientation that slants in three dimensions, but I’m hoping im wrong.

Here's my stab at it in situ with showing an egg splattering and dripping down. The hands are spread out like rain but the directional arrow goes down and out. Else one would need a side view to write it. Drawing the arrow next to the hand confuses me but as a motion arrow this is my best dissection.

Subject: Question on hand orientation

 

Hi everyone,  I have a sign in our SignTyp project that shows the hands tilted down, backs up with fingers lower than the heel of the palm.  Here is the screengrab from the video:



 

How would you write this orientation to show that the fingers are lower than the wrist?  For this sign EGG, it means that the uncooked eggs are spreading out, falling down and kind of splattering all over.  If the hands were straight out, I don’t think it would have the same meaning, so I want to have the orientation show that if possible.

 

Thank you!

Rachel
