Signing the Letter D

Recommended Posts

i have watched a few BSL alphabet videos and i am now wondering if i am signing my letters correctly.
i have seen people sign he alphabet in a few different ways so now i am wondering does it matter where your fingers are when you sign?

My left hand only has the index finger extended and the thumb and other fingers making a fist,
my right hand last 3 fingers and in a fist and my thumb and index finger make the latter C

but i have seen videos where:

left hand all fingers are extended thumb is tucked down.
and right hand all fingers and thumb create the C 

I will try get a friend to take a picture later to show what i mean but i am current not able to get  picture

now i am worried that if i have D wrong that the rest of my signing is wrong.

Signs aren't 100% the same everywhere so you get variations of hand and finger placement, I guess it's like having an accent in that someone from Kent will sign something differently to someone from Aberdeen so if you're been shown 2 things that are slightly different they're probably both correct.

I was shown to sign 'D' like this
