Except I think most of my followers were friends with me from many moons before. :)
Draw what makes you happy. Draw what makes you feel good - at least to start. Then try drawing stuff that you “just can’t” draw, like hands. Draw! Draw if people say you’re wonderful, draw also when they say you suck. Trust me on this. Don’t compare yourself to others - or at least try not to.
If you need some honest critique or pointers or encouragement, there’s lots of folks out there who will help you out! If nothing else, I’m offering encouragement, but I will also help you if I can! I’m not the best artist, but I’ve been doing this a while.
Most importantly, never give up on your art! Also trust me on this. I tried. It was a really bad idea.
