I have found some great free drawing lessons on video that can help all budding artists! It's pretty exciting to have such a wonderful selection of resources.
You are shown how to achieve effects in many various ways - it only takes a little bit of your time and you learn heaps. Youtube is a gold mine of information sharing - it just takes a while to find the really good ones.
By providing a selection here, my aim is to save you time and get right into practicing these valuable tips.
The first free drawing lesson is an important one from artist Larry Gluck. He shows you how to hold your pencil and then build a sketch. It will take some practice to do this but it certainly helped me for a start.
The main object is to learn how to lay in a rough sketch which lays the foundation for illustrations.

By the way, Larry (the artist) is left handed. So, if you are right handed, place the pencil in the palm of your left hand and pick it up with your right as he shows in the video.
It might be a bit easier to use a stick of charcoal when you practice this method. I initially used a pencil and still learned from it, so it's really up to you.
When you first do something different, it is always a challenge and it's quite normal to feel frustrated. All you have to do is keep practicing and pretty soon you'll be able to do it.
I really enjoyed experimenting this way so I hope you find the same value. It will improve your skills, regardless.
Watch the videos over and over again, it really is amazing how quickly how you can forget.
