Another person here who's noticed the masculinity of the way you draw them, and really likes it. Though I don't think Azi really is all that open with his emotions, I don't think he wears them on his sleeve nearly as much as Crowley does. I wonder if some people connect "appearing gay" with femininity, which I don't necessarily. I've known a lot of gay men, some of whom very happily openly flaming, who still didn't come off as feminine per se. Hard to put a finger on exactly what gave off that masculine impression--square jaws? Deep voices? Men's cologne?--but I never thought of them as anything other than men, and to see them feminized would just be weird.

There used to be this sort of sub-trend of drawing Azi like a stereotypical bishie uke type, and wow, did I think that needed to die in a bookshop fire NOW. I can't understand where people would even get that from, or why they would want to.

Ugh yes. As an artist I have a lot of issues with bishies to begin with. But why... why would you take such an interesting and multi-faceted character and wash down his appearance to something simple and boring?
