The title of this post says it all. This is the 5th picture in the Jay family story. Buddy is on his own and wants to be part of a family.
Re-inking this image went smoothly because it had never been colored, and it was just a bare bones line drawing. The original drawing showed only Momma Jay’s head and neck. I extended the picture so that it could be used as a wide view rather than a square view. She’s also extending her hand and gently touching Buddy’s outstretched hand/claw/paw.
