Hello Charles -
Thank you for this question. And I am glad you watched the Finger Movement Symbol Video, which I think was really well done. Thank you, Adam!

Finger Movement Symbols Videos

and the specific symbol you are referring to, is explained here:

Sequential Squeeze Finger Movement Video

The symbols were developed based on which finger squeezes first, second, third and so forth…following the arrowhead which finishes at the end of the symbol…

So the second writing, just as Stefan just said, makes sense -

Val ;-)

Here is how I wrote "linda" (beautiful) in LIBRAS. From the videos, I'm apparently writing in backward if I intend to show the smaller finger being the first to close.

linda (beautiful) LIBRAS

From the video, it should be shown like this. Is this correct?
