The main explosion plumes were made using particle simulation with varied geometry copied to the points. The shading was done using a custom OSL toon shader in Renderman. Electricity was created using hand-drawn curves in Houdini, the curves were put through a for-loop that added noise to the shape and offset their animation paths.

While the electricity and volumetric plumes were created in Houdini, additional elements were created in After Effects.
