Re: you've got a "split lighting" scheme instead

It does not matter which side of the face the triangle of light is on. It will be on whichever side of the face is less illuminated, as determined by the placement of the key light.

Yes and all that. You want that lighting ratio I think at 1:4. You want that key light high enough to cast a triangular shadow that just reaches the lip. You may want to tip the brimof the hat up and maybe towards the key to free more light for the desired effect. Trial and error....Keep it up!
