Default Which skills should I focus on?

I am currently a senior in high school, and I hope to someday have a job within the games industry, possibly from the art side. Over the summer, I plan to spend time refining my art skills at home, and I want to know which skills I should focus on more.

Should I focus more on facial/character expressions by drawing self portraits, looking at manga, and google image search? More on getting correct anatomy by studying bones/muscles? More lighting effects and creating the illusion of texture in a 2D medium? More on landscapes? Should I focus more on getting my traditional skills down set, or push my creativity further?

I want to work on all these things, but since summer is only 3ish months, I will need to focus more on some things than others. I do plan to take art classes in college as well.

On a different note, does anyone know of any good tutorials for texturing in Maya?
