dive animation challenge

Hi all, I am using the bi-weekly animation challenge to get a better understanding of animating in blender. Here is my start for the dive. The character I am using isn’t fully rigged here.

I tried playing with the fluid simulation to fake some good splashes but with limited results. The bellyflop was intentional. I still have some smoothing out of the movements to do. This is the first animation attempt for me so keep that in mind :wink:

Thanks for looking.

I see the flipping of his right hand and will fix it.
