Step 3: Eyes

Add two dots in to represent the eyes.

Step 4: Eyebrows and Chin

Color lips and apply lip outline under it lightly. Add eyebrows, with medium pressure.

Step 5: Scar and Skin Tones

Add the scar in a dark shade, add the facial tones to make his cheeks pop out.

Step 6: Hair

Make an outline of his hair. This way you can picture what it will look like.
