Try starting out by observing things IRL and draw them on paper, or at lease try. Start by drawing something simple like an egg. Apply your own drawing skills.
When you're on the computer, it's about mouse control, so start out by just scribiling in paint whatever you can, and your hand will eventually get used to the mouse/pad and it's sensitivity. Draw something simple in paint and colour it in and remeber that you have different brush sizes. Try out by starting to draw a person. If you fail, try again and fail better.
Hopefully you'll get the hang of it eventually, and once you do, you can look at dimensions and shading.
Here's something I did in paint on Page 2:
Mftopia, land of dreams. <3
I can't draw.
