Ever since I first started the MomSwap series, I always wanted to eventually do some sort of actual swapping between the accounts we see. I wasn’t sure exactly how I wanted to do it; for a while I wanted to try doing a full comic focusing on a swap, or maybe a one-to-two page affair. I never felt like those were viable options, though, especially with how many other comics I’ve loaded myself down with, but recently I decided to take a swing at this approach. I picked the Parrs and the Prouds partly because they’re two of my favorites I’ve done for this series, and partly because I liked the punny title that came to mind. I don’t know if or when I’ll do another swap, as I’m far from done making profile pages for this fictional mom swapping app, but I might do another down the line. Are there any mother/daughter pairings I’ve done for MomSwap y’all would like to see make a trade eventually?
This is the second Proud Family entry into the MomSwap series, and probably it’ll be the last. LaCienega is the bitchy rival character to Penny from that series (though later on they become sort-of friends). Sunset, her mom, is Penny’s mom’s best friend, so they have sort of a weird relationship with the main family. I don’t actually recall how LaCienega and Sunset’s relationship works, but that’s okay. I would like to point out that I had to tone down LaCienega’s feet quite a bit. In the show they’re almost as long as her legs, which is just too over the top, but I did still make them a bit larger than I normally would.
So I left the decision about who should star in the next MomSwap up to my supporters, and they voted for Penny and Trudy of the Proud Family. I was pretty happy with this choice, as I’d been meaning to canonize them in this series for a while. Trudy was a big crush of mine when I was younger, and Penny ain’t half-bad herself, so they had to show up here sooner or later. When working on this pic I thought maybe I should do more with Proud Family characters in the future, but who knows. It’d be fun, though.
