Olá Eda!
Thank you for changing the card so fast - that is amazing!

You are very skilled with Adobe Illustrator...I use the Adobe Creative Suite Design Premium (CS5) - and Illustrator is a part of that suite of programs, so we use some of the same software ;-)

I am happy you are creating a tutorial. Let's talk about the third sign, for NEW? NOVO? I do not know the sign, but I should be able to read the movements, but I am not sure of the movement...

Does it start with a circle shape for the right hand, and then moves side and opens up in a five hand? Like this?

You see, the little hollow circle that represents the opening of fingers (that appears at the end of your arrow in the third sign), could mean that you were opening to a variety of different handshapes...but if you write the finishing hand shape, it is a lot clearer for the reader... If you write that second position then it is not necessary to write the hollow dot that means to open the fingers...so is my sign for NOVO correct in LIBRAS? or have I misunderstood?

I look forward to your answer ;-)

Val ;-)
