Hello Everyone, and Stuart!
Thanks for these different spellings...And I am happy to explain. See
the attached GIF. The standard way to write signs in front of the nose
is the Front View. When you see a sign with a nose on the face, you
know that the sign is relating to that nose in some even
though the hands are written over to the right of the facial circle,
the sign is still being produced in front of the nose, because of that
nose line... The moment we choose the Top View, there are a bunch of
issues. So please look at the diagram and then write again with
questions...Val ;-)
