Looking awesome man! Your really snappy timing with the explodies is so fun to watch xD. Really nice work overall! My only thing I would bring up is that the heads of the particles are getting a little blown out and any shapes that you could use for those areas are hard to see. Looking at your really nice references you can see these really cool shapes and subtle value shifts throughout with the brightest 1% being perhaps white. Maybe trying to get some of that in would be cool :). Also I really like the trails, but they do feel a little static.Breaking that up a bit might help it feel more fluid.
As always, keep up the rad work man!
