Cell Division

step 1

Open a new document and fill the background color with white (FFFFFF). Now, still on the same layer, grab your gradient tool with the following settings:

and make dots around your image so it looks similar to this:

step 2

Duplicate this layer, but hide the duplicated layer (by clicking the “eye” icon next to the duplicated layer in the Layers Palette) so your Layers Palette looks like this:

Now, while the original layer is still selected, go to Filter > Distort > Wave with the following settings:

Press OK, and your image should look something like this:

step 3

Unhide the duplicated “Layer 1 copy” layer and you should see your original dots. Go to Filter > Distort > Wave again, using the same settings, but make sure you press the Randomize button so you get a different version of a wave still using those same settings you used before. (Tip: Feel free to press the button more than once until you get a wave pattern that you like the most.)

Now set the Blending Mode on “Layer 1 copy,” the second layer and the layer on top, to Multiply.

step 4

The following steps are optional. If you are happy with your image, you are done! However, if you wish to spice up your image a bit more, read on. Add an Inner Shadow Layer Style to “Layer 1 copy,” the second layer and the layer on top, with the following settings:

Your image should look like this:

Also, feel free to add some color by going to Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation and check the Colorize checkbox. For a multi-colored Cell Division graphic add a different-colored Hue/Saturation to the other layer. Good luck!
