Start drawing in a sketchbook right now.

Really, just do it. Your drawing level right now is underdeveloped. You can come up with the usual excuses people make, like "I don't have the talent", but what it comes down to is CORRECT PRACTICE. Open up a book and start churning out those sketches.

Your pixel art will benefit too.

We can't really comment on this, since they are just bare bone sketches that anyone could create really. There's no form, no silhouette, no definition, no line control. I'm not saying this to be hurtful, disrespectful or anything else. I'm just making it a bit blunter than usual, because I feel it's needed.

I think I get too easily offended.

Lock before I say something stupid.

These are the things you need to hear.  We need you to at least be on the same track before we can really critique things, and that's not going to happen until you start practising the fundamentals with some kind of regularity.  Millions of beginners tutorials are out there, as are school programs and other groups in your community which will foster artistic growth and "talent" far better than, at this point, spending hours on the computer/internet (this coming from a half-active guy with the second-highest postcount here).
A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.
