You took the first and most important step already by asking this question and wanting to draw. Drawing is a skill and can be learned like any other skill. Sure talent is a helpful thing but I believe everyone has the talent to draw. If the first attemnts don't look exactly like what you had in mind that's perfectly alright. No one ever was born a perfect cartoonist or drawing artist. Besides your drawing is without question a work of art. You created it out of nothing and there isn't anything quite like in the entire world.
Drawing characters may seem simple, but when it boils down to it you've got to know what your doing.(Ok, maybe not really, but still have some drawing sense) Your craftsmanship must be accurate, you must have perceptive eyes and know how to draw based on everyday life. Maybe start with yourself in the mirror? Those are a few things to consider, but all talk and no show makes me a dull boy. So later I shall upload a photo of a character I drew. I am a art major, so yeah.
