I was wondering about the books and online tutorials which are meant to teach how to draw.  Are they really effective? I mean, can they really teach you to draw or only to copy the drawings made by the book's (or website's) authors? I believe that in order to draw, one has to have at least some talent. What if someone has never had either inclination or talent, just like me? Can they still learn to draw? perhaps, but only after putting a lot of effort into this skill, and the end result would never be half as good as drawings made by really talented people. Taking all this into account, is it really worth trying? Isn't it better to stick to something one is talented for?

@Primmulla No idea if the question is still pending or not but yeah it's totally worth trying. Books and videos are totally capable of teaching everything you need to know. But it takes commitment and I'd advise you to have fun drawing and creating your own stuff. Skill and style develops over time and your first drawings will probably suck :) I remember my brother not even being able to guess that the T-Rex I drew (I was convinced that the drawing was amazing) was a dinosaur.

Here's something to give you a starting point https://www.davidrevoy.com/article242/what-skills-are-needed-to-draw 

Don't be intimidated by all those different skills - just focus on one at a time and have fun with it.
