As a person who loves comics and cartoon artwork, don't listen to what your professionals say! I would say take any classes related to drawing, art in general. Doing that allows you to build your passion for drawing and your skills with confidence. Within these classes, I would say start auction your artwork to family and friends, hopefully to school and from there, take it to stores and communities in need of your talent. I hope this help give you an idea on how to start!
