Flash FX Animation
It's surprising how much you can get away with when it comes to water, as long as the shapes move smoothly, you can get cheat it very easily with only a few drawings. As long as you have a slow hang time that favours the main high point, then you can drop the water out very quickly. Usually you need just 4 rough keys to get an idea of the scale, volume, shape, and timing of your splash. Takes 2 minutes just to rough it out. Afterwards comes the tough part, mapping out the structure of it, and figure how how three dimensional you want to make it. In this case I'm having it shoot out fast (similar to a puff of smoke) have crazy hangtime in the air, then have it fall apart quickly.
