well, if you have photoshop and a wacom you're off to a good start :) getting comfortable with using the tablet, and the tools and techniques in photoshop shouldn't take too long but it's good to concentrate on that a little IMO.
probably a good idea to learn as much as you can about colour theory, composition, and then on to custom PS brushes as well. but i'd say you also want to make sure you learn about perspective, proportions, shape and form, lighting and how surface materials react to different types of light, shadows etc etc....all the things you'll need for creating characters and environment that look believable.
if it's not too late, you could always ask santa for a few of these.....
