Are you sure you want to delete this?

There is top light and then there is top light. I understand that it is useful when you are creating a 'real' 360º environment light but to make it the primary source for a character is not always so great. I find that there is a tendency now in animation to try to mimic an environment lighting that may be realistic but is not necessarily the most complimentary to the shot. For instance, do you like the effect of the light on the face from the top light in the image you post? In the end it is all subjective.
