Red Sorena #1 by SorcerusHorserus Red Sorena #1 by SorcerusHorserus
Welcome to Equestria's dark past -- a savage age of swords, sorcery, and adventure!
This is the tale of a griffon born into a life of battle.
This is the tale of Red Sorena.

This was SO much fun to make. I wanted to try a new art style with the end goal of making a full-color strip in just a few days. I would like to become more prolific with my art, and I feel that Dash Academy's style is so time-consuming that it has prevented me from doing what is most fun: drawing lots of crazy characters and keeping the action moving! The experiment was a success: this comic only took a few days to finish (as opposed to the weeks and weeks I'd spend on each Dash Academy strip), I had a blast, and so Dash Academy strips might look a bit different from now on!

Hope you enjoy!

*Note: This is a spin-off of the comic book Argie is reading in Dash Academy Starlight Dance #1.

Gilda has an adventurous counterpart whose known from fiction. Wonder if she's as real as Daring Do.

Its a pity that You decided to put here characters from original show. The griffon from cover looks so much better than this 'gilda like' one....

Thank god. If you could do dash academy with this style, then everything would work out fine. The art style is still pretty good and man, more dash academy strips at a more frequent basis?

Red Sorena? Excellent homage to Red Sonya.

Why Sorena, though? Is it because of Soren from Guardians of Gahoole? :D

i always wondered how people would interpret how earth pony and Pegasi  would use swords...  I always thought it would be a mouth weapon.  ya know, so they could use all four hooves for maneuvers and such
