I did the initial thinking in Photoshop before switching to Excel to work at this really low res and few colours. Then brought things back into Photoshop to get the texture and such going. I quite enjoyed the challenge of doing a representation of the character with so few pixels and also with a hieroglyphic style thrown in as well.
Below is how the Nasus at each end would work (orange in different spots) with as many Qs in between to make the scarf the right length. I did wonder if the Qs could get bigger and bigger towards the middle, but that is lots more work for the maker.
As the rift is kind of green, I also made a greener version which makes for a more Aussie-supporter coloured look (green and gold) and doubtless other background colours could work as well.
I did wonder if a Vel'Koz scarf with a Life Form Disintegration Ray running down the length of the scarf could work as well. Hell maybe #LoLscarves could become a thing...
