Eukaryotic Cell Cycle:

In eukaryotes, the cell cycle consists of four discrete phases: G1, S, G2, and M. The S or synthesis phase is when DNA replication occurs, and the M or mitosis phase is when the cell actually divides. The other two phases G1 and G2,the so-called gap phases are less dramatic but equally important. During G1, the cell conducts a series of checks before entering the S phase. Later, during G2, the cell similarly checks its readiness to proceed to mitosis. Together, the G1, S, and G2 phases make up the period known as interphase. Cells typically spend far more time in interphase than they do in mitosis. Of the four phases, G1 is most variable in terms of duration, although it is often the longest portion of the cell cycle

The visual aspect for my project is revolving around the fleshy colours of the human body and insides. Im using this sort of colour palate with a slightly cartoon/basic style mixed in with some vibrant colours to help emphasise certain areas of my work or what is being interacted with.

I took my inspiration from areas of the human body for some of the colours and looked at a game call The Undergarden for inspiration for lighting and bursts of colour.
