Looking at it at first glance, it looks far too much like the thumb-ASL-A hand, even though the split is different.  When I see an angled finger on something that looks like a square, that´s an A, whether a square or a short rectangle, and a short rectangle looks like an A hand, not the long hand of a neutral flat hand.  Maybe in writing it is more distinct but the computer makes them awfully similar.
  My quick thoughts.  My first guess was two A hands moving against each other, which is not your intent.

Philippe and Stuart and Adam and Everyone!

I have two questions for you too...Take a look at the attached...the 
top ones are examples you showed us first, using the symbols that are 
currently in the IMWA. The Heel of Hand is very short in the IMWA.

Look at my diagram at the bottom (number 3)...I made the Heel of Hand 
symbol a little bit I wrote the Brush Symbol in the 
middle of the stem of the arrow the way I would write it by hand...

Can you read my example? Which do you prefer?
