We were on an island called “Isle of Skye”. This island must be the sheep and cow heaven. There live more sheep than people on this island. There are no fences and endless green hills.

I thought who could be the defenders of this island? And here are the defenders of Skye Island Goro (left:moo:) and Pan (right:sheepish:).
(lol a sheep who fights with a shepherd's staff:XD:)

Here is the update. I've experimented a bit with a new shading technique. I used a soft brush and eraser to get soft transitions. Otherwise I'm always making hard shadows. I'm satisfied with the results.
Until now I don't feel to make a background, maybe I won't make one.

The look of the tartan is not random. My sister gave me the clue that on the "Isle of Skye" two clans live, the MacLeod and the MacDonald. So I use the real tartan of the clans how live on that Island. And what is also cool is that the blazon of the MacLeod is a bull! I did not know that.

Epic, dude. Epic.

It really surprises me how well you can create two distinguishable shading methods and apply them to the same style. Both types are so different and achieve unique results, so this is rather suitable for this type of drawing. :) Love the detailing too; you surely go all out, all the time.

Keep it up!

I like the new shading technique!
It would be a shame if you wouldn't make a background for this one, you already have a nice sky. (hint for a simple solution: The island is also known as the island of mist! ;))

Awesome again!
I love this characters! The ram (Widder/Schafsbock) is really nice. BTW, I think, it would be cool if their kilts colors would match the tartan ("Schottenmuster") match those of the two Clans living on Skye: MacLeod and MacDonald ;)

AMAZING YET AGAIN!Even their weapons match.

"In the Scottish Highlands,there are two knights who protect their land,the Isle of Skye,from evil spirits.
Goro,the bull,and Pan,the sheep,protect their very way of life.
They are the Highland Knights!"

-Coming Soon-

That.......was awesome!
