It would be impossible in fact, because the curved thumb would write  
on top of the square for the fist, and it would be very hard to show  
the curve...believe me...I tried it!

No. The Center of the Body rule works beautifully and gives the  
feeling of the fingertips of all three fingers "relating to each  
other"... they need to be seen in a curve where the fingers relate to  
each other in a formation that the reader's eye picks up on fast while
