I was bored at the shop one day so I took some scrap to the bandsaw. After a few quick cuts and a whole lot of filing here he is. He is about 3" high and cut from 1" plate. What do y'all think?

Boredom is the mother of creation!!! welcome on TC !
I would say just: maybe miss some strokes of metal files to release the nose...otherwise look is good, keep the inspiration, go on!!!

Now I'm wondering about doing a whole chess set with these little guys. I think he'd make a great rook. Would take a long time to finish all of them though. Thanks for the comments.
