Not sure it's gonna be as easy as that. If the client is not happy with what has been delivered so far, they may try to argue that no work has been done for them, and want it all back (irrespective of what the actual "legal" situation is).
If you are sure about wanting to withdraw from the project (and we've ALL been there), then I would try to clarify to the client why you are entitled to the full deposit, though perhaps offer some part of it back if you feel they may try to take issue with this, otherwise you may end up them fighting you for all of it back, which mo matter who's in the right if other potential clients hear about it may put them off using your services.
Something to keep in mind.

To add to what Dan wrote, I would take a lot more time to try to find out what is involved in the areas you're considering, and what it is you really want to do with your working life. As he suggested, they really are two very different areas, and I don't know of many (if any) that combine both to a level that they are professionally successful. You really need to focus on what you love doing, and aim to become the best you can at that, to be successful.

Not all accordions @THEUNDERDOG, only on some screens, and with the addition of a clear icon to indicate as such. But screen is same otherwise, groups of content broken up into segments, hence makes sense to carry across consistent design.

Wow, @Dave and @Dan agreeing. That would be enough to convince me.
I agree, dev isn't something you can just learn and enjoy. It would be like me buying a pencil and notepad, doing a course on drawing and thinking I'll be an illustrator.
If you are an analytical person who can work out how another person problem solves, then integrate that into your method, go for it. Otherwise you'll probably end up on cookie cutter, process driven projects that won't stimulate your creative side.

@dave - much better.
If the client wants it to 'pop' with a bit of 'wow factor' - then you could always change the font to @jamesb 's warehaus/rave font...
@trex - love you work as always. When I grow up, I want to design like you.

@Dave yeah agreed.
@TRex depends on the client/job. This website was a very small project so I did it 100% pro-bono. Normally for bigger projects I take off 40% but it all depends who it's for and if they have any income to speak of.
