What is the best way to learn Photoshop?
Is there a good website that shows you beginner tutorials? Maybe a video?
I've seen some good articles right here on hubpages. I would also suggest youtube. I personally benefit from being able to watch what someone is doing, and I've found plenty of tutorials there for photoshop.
There are many, many tutorials online for free. I have done a couple of them here, and you can find them everywhere. The best way to learn though is through doing, trial and error etc. I would get one good book that lists all the tools and where to find them and then dig into tutorials on the web. YouTube is an excellent idea for how to videos and I used to enjoy the tutorials on Layers Magazine website. I need to go back there I haven't been in awhile
I am not interested in editing photos but more so in illustrating and creating vector drawings etc. For example, taking a drawing and adding color and cell shading. Any ideas?
What about Illustrator? Illustrator is the superior program for vectors and more handdrawn graphics etc. You can do it with Photoshop, but Illustrator has better features for what you are looking to do. Also Illustrator and Photoshop compatible
You could also check out Inkscape--it is a free open-source vector graphics program similar to Illustrator. Don't know how good it is, but their site does include a sizable list of tutorials.
I found a video on YouTube that may help you

Or for artist
practice makes permanent. After you get a tutorial, follow the steps and practice as much as you can. I have discovered many things on my own as i practiced.
If you have trouble learning anything like Photoshop, I am a big fan of the "Dummies" books. They explain things in an easy to understand manner and you will always have it on the shelf for reference.
It depends on what kind of a learner you are. Hands on is always best, get the CD and just do it. But if you want to see a video and that's how you retain information, try this one for How to Use the Vector in Photoshop:
And this is for beginners, teaches you basics on Photoshop:
