Right, Charles!

The question is how is the handshape after the downward motion.

Do not know how to represent a hand in "D" that is intermediatebetween the planes of wall and floor.

If there is any consideration of these in any of Forus, or a lesson, I have not seen.

Please, my friend, you read the considerations put the lateste-mail, responding to Valerie and Stefan.

The video doesn't seem to be talking to the sign spelling that is actually displayed at all.
Watching the video, he seems to be talking about a signing with the left hand across the body where as either of these options is the right hand on the right side of the body. 
Opcao (Option) 1 or 2 are both the same, one is more streamlined than the other but it is still the right hand with the right index finger touching on the cheek and moving down.

SignWriting ListOctober 24, 2011
The second spelling in the video is a shortened version and the second hand position isn't even written in the second spelling, which suggests to me that the writer feels that it is supposed to be the same handshape and same palm facing in both cases, even though he may not have signed it that way - Just a thought - it is possible that the person who has the sign name wants it to be signed the way
 it is written ... but it is hard to sign it that way!
So Yuri, is the second handshape supposed to be parallel to the Floor or the Wall?

Hi Yuri,  yes I liked to look at your video too. ... and I love all sorts of SW spelling discussions. Part of our SW tests is to search for spelling-mistakes in  GebaerdenSchrift-documents. This is fun and is a wonderful option to improve the skills of a SignWriting scribe. As I understand your video you are discussing the spelling of a name-sign – The letter “D”  for “Danielle” and then focus on the long hair. Right?Well another comment – if you are interested – smile  L.I.F.EWhen I look at your performance and in consideration of the second touch contact at waist level, I would prefer a different notation – the final D-hand with the gap.
