Blue: B32-B34-B37-B99
Guitar: E39- E377-E35-E31
Background: W5-3-1-00. 

Here's how I colored the image: 
I like to start with the lightest color E000.
I lay down a fast layer on all the skin.

I draw in the shadows E11, thinking the ligthsource is top left. 

Next is E21, on top of the E11 and a little further.

Smoothing it out with E000.

Next I use all three colors again. 
E11-E21 and  E000.

 Time for the cast shadows using BV20.

I draw the cheeks using R20- and smoothing it out with E000.

Hair is next. I start by flicking the darkest parts using

Going on using YR24

And Y26

And Y21
I add some more E25 and YR24 on the edges. 
I am happy with the hair.

I make a "map" using YG06 to deside where to put the darkest parts of the folds on his t-shirt. 
Then I use YG13 and YG01.
Finally I add darker shadows with G07, smoothing the edges with YG06, YG13 and 01. 

The pants. I make a map using my lightest blue, B32.  Then I lay down the darkest shadows with B37 and then B34. Finally I use B99 for the darkest shadows. Then I go over the pants with all of my blues again: B99- B37- B34- B32. 

I used E39-37-35-31for the guitar.
for the details on the t- shirt I used V17 and V12.

For the eyes:  B32 og B34. I drew som dots and lines with a white gel pen.

For the backbround I used W5-3-1-00.
