GENIUS: [link]
Summary: "Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration." As a girl fighting against numerous obstacles, Ryoma will show Seigaku just how Edison defines tennis.

Genius 000 is for the prologue, "A New Beginning." I sketched this in pencil and then penned and colored it in in PS. In retrospect, there were several things I could've done better to better illustrate my writing. I'm rather proud of her eyes though- it's one of the distinct features of the mangaka's drawing style. I thought since I'm trying to make the fanfic as close to the original as possible, then the fanart should reflect the same intentions. Though her expression is entirely different than what I was going for, I did a pretty good job for an amateur, no?

Part of the reason I started this piece was in response to some reviewers' request to see Ryoma with long hair and this is the only chapter she does so far. I haven't thought about whether she'll grow it out later on. We'll see;)

Hope everyone likes this piece!
