My semi-realistic redesign of Cyrus, Leader of Team Galactic.
Out of all the Pokemon villains, Cyrus creeps me out the most because of his obsession of destroying the universe, starting it again as its god and hating human compassion/emotions. While all the other villains have some kind of intention behind their evil actions, Cyrus comes off as a legit psychopath.
Apparently he is the only Pokemon villain with a confirmed age (him being 27). I think that possibly makes him the youngest villain out of the bunch too, despite the fact that he looks so much older in the anime/manga. I think it's because of his prominent cheekbones.
I really wanted to capture his look of insanity here, as well as his dream of becoming a god like in the games.
The rest of them:

I don't think any newcomer of the franchise will supersede him as my favorite villain of Pokemon. I love his calculating, contemplative stare in your artwork. It gives the feeling that he over thought his way into insanity.
Damn. This is both the scariest and the youngest looking Cyrus I've seen. I was surprised to learn he was only 27 when I first played Platinum. He looked like he was in his forties in the anime. You did a great job with his expression, it's very creepy.
