Unfortunately you can only skip it if you make it to a certain point in the game. In other words, make it to Land 2, that way when you restart, you can skip the tutorial and just choose your creature. I don't know what point you have to reach to allow it though... I think after finishing the creature tutorial.
in order to skip the tutorial however you need to have patch 1.2 installed. after that you sit through the tutorial once and get to land 2 and any time you have a new game after that it should allow you to skip it.
