About time to post something again, so I thought I'd post a warm up that I later refined slightly to keep the idea - where I was inspired by the latest character challenge at CGHUB.
At the moment the challenge is the two blue wizards. These wizards are the two of the five Istari that you actually don't meet in the world of Tolkien, they are just mentioned. Saruman, Gandalf and Radagast is in the northwestern regions of Middle Earth, but the two blue, Alatar and Pallando are just mentioned as going east. In other words, a pretty open challenge.
