After searching the web for an Icon of ArchAngel Gabriel (my patron saint), I was treated to what seemed like a vast collection of different styles/types of Icon writing. Although I like them all, I seem to be drawn to the modern (Western influenced, though not Baroque) Byzantine and also the Coptic styles. The former because (to my way of thinking), Christ, the Theotokos, ArchAngels and the Saints all seem more human, probably because they're written with more depth, shading, and, well, more vividly human looking. The latter (Coptic) because they make me feel connected to the early Christians.
I realize that there are probably more styles than I listed in the poll, but, as I'm fairly new to Orthodoxy and by no means an Icon scholar, I thought it safe to just list 'other'. I also realize that there is a whole theology behind writing Icons, which I've considered taking up.
In addition to simply answering the poll, I hope you'll share some insight into your favorite style as well as any information you may have on the theology of Iconography.
