Proud Fam Grown by PayLe Proud Fam Grown by PayLe
After Penny and friends graduated from high school, they celebrated by getting piercings together. Penny, Dijonay, and LaCienega all got stud nose rings. Zoey decided to finally break out of her shell and make a bold statement by getting a septum nose ring. Sticky wasn't about that life, so he just got his ears pierced. Four years after graduation we catch up with Penny and friends once again.

Zoey graduated from a four year college and received a double major in Psychology and Women Studies. She now travels around the world working for a large nonprofit organization helping underprivileged children and women around the world. She is extremely free spirited and loves what she does.

Penny graduated from a four year college studying Communications with a minor in Race Studies, and graduated Magna Cum Laude of her class. She is now working towards her Masters in Education at Columbia. She also stopped relaxing her hair and went all natural, embracing her naps.

Sticky decided not to go to college and instead pursued his love of music. He is now a full-time producer and DJ and couldn't be happier. He finally had his growth spurt and can finally fit into his pants. He now prefers to wear clothes that fit him. He has a newborn son whom he loves more than anything: Sticky Jr.

Dijonay went to a two year college to study nursing only to find out she hated it. She decided to drop out of the program. She took her side job of doing hair and made a career out of it, opening up her own salon. She is well known at what she does and it has brought her much fame. Upon dropping out, she also gave birth to her son, Sticky Jr. Her dream finally came true.

LaCienega attended a four year college for two years as undeclared, just because she had the money and the means. During the beginning of her junior year, she was told she had to choose a major. Indecisive, she decided to drop out and do something worth her time. She went into the modeling business and was extremely successful. She is currently working on dropping her first single.

I never really liked LaCienega. She looks great but personally I see her taking a huge fall. And early fall but one that slaps the brat out of her. I hate to say it but I so see her nearly failing at modeling because of her attitude. But in the end she starts her own modeling and fashion company and becomes even more successful and a better person.

However, though her attitude changes significantly, her years of distancing from people who she once deemed less than her, have left her unable to really relate to most people and she finds her self terribly lonely. But she is a little too self-confident and maybe a little embarrassed about it to tell anyone, even though Penny notices something is bother her friend. Penny continuously tries getting LaCienega to open up to her, but she constantly comes up with excuses to avoid Penny. "I have an board meeting in 5", "I need to take this call", etc.
Until perhaps one day she meets a young male model who will be modeling her new summer line of clothes. He strikes her as cool, calm, and collected, as well as very confident in not only his work, but himself.
She can't help but notice him from time to time, and secretly asks around about him in an attempt to find out exactly who he is. "I think he's from New York" some would say "I'm pretty sure he said Miami" others would add. He becomes more and more mysteriously intriguing, and LaCienega is losing her mind over the fact that not only does she know so little about him but that she can't seem to get this stranger out of her head.
Despite trying to be conspicuous about it, this young model, one way or another, becomes aware of his boss asking about him. He comes to her office unannounced and introduces himself personally, then invites her to have lunch with him. She tries declining. If she was seen having lunch with one of her models, it could be potentially disastrous for her reputation. But this guy isn't taking no for an answer, and eventually the two of them are having lunch at a small italian place on the other side of town. Being very low-key about it of course.
If you've ever seen and office-romance flick you know the rest.

I'm not sure if anyone's noticed, but Penny Proud looks a bit middle eastern. I think her mother might be at least partially Desi. Probably.

I think these depictions are both very imaginative and realistic. I especially love Penny's and Zoe's designs. Makes me miss the show!
animeluver2795 Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2014
I don't believe these characters are stereotypical. If anything, you based their futures off of what their lives were like on the show. Penney was headstrong and independent while LaCienega was a rich only child who go whatever she wanted.  Their lives were created by Disney, therefore if anyone is being Stereotypical, it's Disney.
PayLe Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2014
perfectly said, haha. thank you! i was just trying to make the characters believable. and i think disney did a good job with the characters, i just added my own little imagination into it.
animeluver2795 Featured By Owner May 1, 2014
You have to right to express you art however you please! That's what being an artist is all about! :)
