The specialist areas that I am going to focus on for my project are story development and 2D art. I want to focus on story development because I enjoy coming up with story ideas and creating worlds for a story to take place in. Also I like creating characters as I can think about their backstory and what kind of person they are and what role they will have in the story. I want to do 2D art so that I can improve my drawing skills, and also I want to be able to visualise my ideas. Also I can work on my art style and develop my art skills.

This task has informed me of what skills I will need in order to successfully complete my work in the areas of 2D art and story development. I already have many of the skills I will need for story development and some for 2D art but I now know that I will need to improve a lot in order to create high quality 2D art. I can use this to help make the 2D art part of my project easier for me, as I know what my weaknesses are in this area so I will be able to work on those and improve them. Also I now know that the story development part of my project will be easier because I have many of the skills I will need so developing my story and characters should not be a problem for me.
