Radagast the Brown - Figures of Middle Earth by MattDeMino Radagast the Brown - Figures of Middle Earth by MattDeMino
Radagast also known as Radagast the Brown was an Istari Wizard of Middle-earth. He was little concerned with the affairs of Men and Elves but was far more knowledgeable in plants, birds and beasts. During the Council of Elrond, Gandalf refers to Radagast as "master of shapes and changes of hue", but the meaning of this is open to question.

Stay tuned for more legendary figures from J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth!

This looks fantastic! Very close to how I've always envisioned the character. No disrespect to Peter Jackson, but his Radagast just feels so off to me. A bumbling buffoon, instead of the stoic, wizened old man I always imagined. Thank you for giving that vision of Radagast life with your artwork. I especially like how all the creatures of the woods, whether it be insect, bird, or mammal, are not only drawn to him but perfectly calm in his presence. Truly a tender of beasts.

This is leagues better than the steam pile offered to us by Jackson. This actually looks like a wzard worthy of the title. Eccentric? Sure. Wise and dangerous? Obviously.

Radagast is awesome... but the owl just makes this the best picture ever.

Great work. This is how I've always imagined him with me being a fan of the books. Mysterious and powerful, friend of Gandalf but secretive. Was a little disappointed with the buffoon depection of PJ.

Peter Jackson. The movie version of Radagast was a fool with bird guano running down the side of his head. Terrible.
