Awesome! I really love this, I seen such quality art from the LOTR wizards! A shame, that Peter Jackson put Radagast in the Hobbit and represented him as a nut in the forest with muck on his head... at least he would create him like this above! This is amazing, I love how you composed it, it gives back the mood of the wizards so much!

Pallando and Alatar that's the name of the two blue but why did Gandalf say he did not remember them?


and wasn't Radagast shorter then Gandalf?

I heard it was because the names of the two blue wizards only appear in The Silmarrilion, which Jackson did not have film rights to, so he couldn't have the character of Gandalf say them...

Maybe (it's my advice)

He don't remember them, is maybe a metaphoric way to say: "i didn't say them since a so long time, i cannot remember theire faces"
Or maybe worst.... "I don't remember them" could be the way for Gandalf to say "They are falled, and disapeared, so i have lose them..."
It's just possibility.

Don't care about the size of Radagast in comparaison  of Gandalf. 1) The movie.... Is just a movie, (with Ragagast who have a bird shit on his hairs) and don't reflect all the world of Tolkien and hiscomplex mix of  magnieficience, mysteries and darkness.
The Hobbit is a movie made for the Harry potter lovers. -_- It's full of "Hollywood" codes.
2) Remmember that: when the Istari came from Arda, Gandalf was the wost humble of them.

The Tolkien work use the language of the books, not the movies language.... And certainly not the Hollywood language.

I was wondering, aside from their staffs (staves) each wizard is holding a second item in his other hand. I was wondering what the significance of the items that the blue wizard is holding?

I just wanted to let you know that I put this in an art feature in my group :iconrealmsoffantasy-myth: , in the article "Realms of Fantasy and Myth: Finale - Tokien's Legacy".  You can find it here: realmsoffantasy-myth.deviantar…  ^_^

I like the way you did the Blue Wizards, and especially Radagast; more the dignified Augustinian hermit here, less the homeless man who joined PETA.

Some of the encyclopedias of middle earth hinted at other wizards who were lost to the ages, I believe there was a red and green but their names escape me (Dammit Gandalf! :3)

Heya! Please, help me out. I've read almost all tolkien books on arda/middle earth but have never seen the names Pallando and Alatar. In which book do they appear?

I had a different understanding of who the 5 maya(s) were.

Send me a private message.

Radagast looks so dignified in here; why did they do that to you in the freaking Hobbit movie? why? :cries:

the two blue wizard are only mentioned in both the books and the movie.
In the first book "the Silmarillion" that explains the origin of the world of LOR, explains the origin of the five wizards. The two blue wizards travel around the world, and they simply disappear, probably died or killed.

In the book of unfinished tales the two blue wizards are cited as not having names specifically, don't they? Or am I remembering that wrong?

They had 2 names per wizard, though it is unspecified which was their common names and which were their Maiar names. The names were Alatar and Pollando; and Morinehtar and Rómestámo.

The Silmarilion is quite interesting, even more so if you read it several times and take time to learn about Tolkien in the time in between; that's what I'm trying to do (but since the day god gave out organization skills I was busy running after a butterfly or something, I don't really have the time)

In The Hobbit, Gandalf notes that he can't remember the names of the two blue wizards, something I found really funny.
