A short animation summarizing the main events that enable a cell to divide - starting at interphase, continuing with mitosis, until cytokinesis.
I often struggle with the plastic look of 3D molecular and cellular illustrations/animations. Therefore, I wanted to do my own take on this subject, making it as organic as possible and bringing some texture to the cell elements, while still working in 2D. I specifically wanted to animate the chromatin coiling, and the spindle apparatus produced by centrosomes that drags the chromosomes to a metaphase plate.
